Elinor Lockhart McKearan (Mary) Our beloved (Mary) Elinor Lockhart McKearan, surrounded by her loving family, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 29, 2021 at the age of 92. She was born in 1929 in Metairie, LA to the late Mary Aufdemorte Lockhart and the late Joseph Michael Lockhart. She is one of 14 siblings, preceded in death by 4 sisters and 4 brothers. She is also preceded in death by her loving husband of 55 years, Daniel T. McKearan, Jr. Ellie was a very special lady and even though she had no children of her own, she still managed to have a multitude of kidlets. Ellie was all about family, she loved to spend time with her many nieces and nephews and was especially like a mother to: Gary, Ashley, Laurie, Barry, Beth, Mark and Gayle. Her role as bonus mom extended even further to her devoted great-nieces Sarah, Rebecca, and Emma. Ellie was a people pleaser, she enjoyed taking care of others and was often referred to as “Good Deed Dottie” because she would never tell anyone no. She had a knack for punctuality. When she said, "I'll be there in ten minutes" it was understood it would probably be more like two hours, but if she was waiting on you, you better not be late. Ellie was a devoted LSU fan. She would often base her weekend schedule around the Fighting Tigers. And Ellie didn’t discriminate, she loved all sports of the purple and gold. Her dedication ran deep as she would simultaneously balance listening to the game broadcast over the radio, while watching it on television, and sharing her own commentary between phone calls with other spectators. All who knew Ellie knows how hard it is to encompass all her greatness in such a short tribute. She was truly one of a kind. There will be a Celebration of Life held in Ellie’s honor on Saturday, November 6, 2021 at Cabrini Chapel, 1400 Moss Street, New Orleans, LA 70119. Visitation begins at 12:00 PM. Arrangements entrusted to Serenity Funeral Home, Covington, LA. Condolences and tributes can be posted at www.serenitycovington.com
