Mary Gay Woodruff Craig, 52, the choral director at West Springfield High School since earlier this year and a former choral director at George C. Marshall High School, was fatally injured Nov. 9 in a traffic accident at Old Court House Road and Aline Avenue, Vienna. She was pronounced dead at Fairfax Hospital.
Fairfax County police said a car driven by Mrs. Craig, who lived in the 8100 block of Timber Valley Court, Dunn Loring, was struck by a pickup truck driven by James Harris, 40, of the 400 block of Kramer Drive, Vienna. Police said their investigation was continuing.
Mrs. Craig was born in Maysville, Ky. She graduated from Central Missouri State University with a degree in music. She and her husband, Richard Stirling Craig, now a retired Army colonel, first moved to the Washington area in 1966.
Mrs. Craig was choral director at George C. Marshall from 1969 to 1975. She then accompanied her husband to Fort Lee, Va., for two years. They returned here in 1977 and Mrs. Craig went back to Marshall, where she remained until transferring to West Springfield.
Since 1979, she had been director of the Reston Chorale. She also was a member of St. Augustine's Episcopal Church in Washington.
In addition to her husband, of Dunn Loring, survivors include four children, Lucy Ann and Melissa Gay, both of New York City, Ben Richard of Stanford, Calif., and James Woodruff of Washington; her mother, Cordelia Berkshire Woodruff of Rockville; a sister, Lonnie Ann Woodruff Vanture of Alexandria, and a grandchild.
