Geoge W. Stiller, 72, a retired official of the Marriott Corporation who was active in chuch and service groups in Montgomery County, died Friday at Suburban Hospital in Bethesda following surgery for an aneurysm.
Mr. Stiller, who was born in Salisbury, N.C., came to Washington in 1934 and joined Marriott the same year. He went to work in the Hot Shoppes division of the company and participated in its expansion and management until his retirement in 1964.
Mr. Stiller was a past president of the Bethesda Civitan Club. Since retiring, he had been active in Bethesda Help, an organization to help the needy, in the Meals-on-Wheels program and as a volunteer driver for shut-ins and the disabled. He was a member and deacon of the Bethesda Presbyterian Church.
Survivors include his wife, Mildred, of Bethesda; one daughter, Dianne Powel, of Greensboro, N.C.; six brothers, Junius and John Stiller, both of Silver Spring, Kenneth, William and Woodson Stiller, all of North Carolina, and Robert Stiller, of Miami; two sisters, Mrs. Henry Kuhn of Virginia, and Alma Prentiss of North Carolina, and two granddaughters.
The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Preservation Fund of Bethesda Presbyterina Church.
