While he served two terms as both governor and comptroller, Schaefer will be remembered most for the four terms he spent as mayor of Maryland's biggest city.

And that was primarily the focus for those who eulogized him. That, and his legendary impatience and temper.

Lainey Lebow-Sachs was a longtime aide and friend to Schaefer and was with him when he died April 18 at the age of 89. She recounted how different their relationship was when she first worked for him.

"I thought he didn't even know I existed. But then came the first time he yelled at me, slammed the door, and didn't talk to me for a week. In some strange way, I knew right then and there that he liked me," she said.

Schaefer was buried at a mausoleum in Timonium Wednesday afternoon.
