Funeral services for Dr. Ulder Tillman, who was the Montgomery County health officer and chief of public health services, will be Friday at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 10000 Stoneybrook Drive, Kensington.

Viewing begins at 10 and the funeral service follows at 11 a.m.

Tillman, 67 of Rockville, died Jan. 3 from a brain aneurysm. She spent 13 years as the county’s top health officer.

Tillman went into medicine to work in public health, according to Mary Anderson, a spokeswoman for the county health department.

As health officer, Tillman oversaw the county’s public health system, as well as the expansion of programs that serve the uninsured: the Montgomery Cares network of nonprofit health clinics and the Care for Kids program.

Before joining the county Department of Health and Human Services, Tillman served as chief of community health services at the Delaware Division of Public Health and as director of health for the city of Waterbury, Connecticut, according to the county. She was a graduate of Harvard University’s School of Medicine and received a master’s degree in public health from the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health.
