      Nelda Kathryn Cason Drinkwater, 98, of Gaithersburg, formerly of Silver Spring, died March 29, 2011, in Shady Grove Hospital in Rockville.

      Born Jan. 17, 1913, in Waycross, Ga., she was a daughter of the late Joseph B. and Fredda Harbin Cason.

      She was the wife of the late Charles N. Drinkwater, who died in 1997. They had been married for 50 years.

      Mrs. Drinkwater graduated from Waycross Junior and Senior High School in 1930. She attended Wesleyan Conservatory and School of Fine Arts in Macon, Ga., where she studied piano and played first-chair violin in the Macon Symphony Orchestra.

      During World War II, she served as one of the first female U.S. Marines. She was stationed at Henderson Hall, near Washington, D.C., where she worked in the transportation and engineering departments.

      Mrs. Drinkwater and her husband moved to Silver Spring in 1947. Following their retirement in 1978, they returned to Waycross. She returned to Maryland in 2008 to live with her daughter.

      Survivors include a daughter, Julia D. Sloan and husband, Stephen, of Gaithersburg; two sisters, Fredda C. Drupiewski of Winter Park, Fla. and Carol C. Farr of Waycross, Ga.; one brother, Richard K. Cason of Lutz, Fla.; three grandsons and two great-grandsons.

      She was preceded in death by three sisters, Keren E. Cason, Doris C. Williams and Lois C. Butler; and one brother, Joseph B. Cason Jr.
