Ann S. Beiderlinden, 90, a Washington-area resident for 26 years and the widow of Maj. Gen. William A. Beiderlinden, died Thursday at Walter Reed Army Medical Center from complications following surgery for a broken hip.
A native of Dunfermline, Scotland, Mrs. Beiderlinden came to this country with her family when she was two years old. She grew up in St. Joseph, Mo., and attended Drury College in Springfield, Mo., where she met William Beiderlinden. They were married in 1917, on the day he received his Army commission.
She accompanied her husband to military posts in this country and the Philippines, Japan and Brazil. He commanded the 44th Infantry Division in Europe in World War II and was acting commanding general of the 3rd Army at Fort McPherson, Ga., in 1952.
After he retired in 1955, she and her husband lived in Arlington and Falls Church. Gen. Beiderlinden died in April.
Mrs. Beiderlinden was a member of the Retired Officers Wives Club and the Pi Beta Phi Alumni Association of Drury College.
A daughter, Janet B. Severe, died in 1978.
Survivors include two brothers, Benjamin G. Symon of Daphne, Ala., and David P. Symon of Kansas City, Mo.; a sister, Mary Jeanette Hash of Harlingen, Tex., and three grandchildren.
