Mary T. Tutle, who worked for more than three decades for what is now CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield, died Jan. 16 at the Mount Vernon Nursing and Rehab Center in Alexandria. She was 60.

The cause was cancer, said her executor, Rosemary Petroff.

Ms. Tutle joined BlueCross/BlueShield in 1980, as the company was then known, and retired in 2011 from CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield. She worked in the early years of her career as a business analyst, later becoming an information-technology developer and supervisor in the federal employee program. After her retirement, she remained associated with the company as a consultant.

Mary Therese Tutle was born in Chicago and grew up in Waynesboro, Va. She graduated from Virginia Tech in 1975.

She was a past chairman of the homeowner’s association at her condominium in Arlington and a past president of the Arlington chapter of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians, Petroff said.

Ms. Tutle also took cooking classes in Northern Virginia and did volunteer work through the Campagna Center, a youth- and family-services organization in Alexandria.

Survivors include two brothers.
