October 31, 2003

Lorraine P. Kealiher, a former McCormick & Co. chef and home economist, died of undetermined causes Sunday at her home in Atkinson, Maine. The former Manchester resident was 69.

Miss Kealiher was born and raised in Milo, Maine, where she graduated from high school in 1951. She earned her bachelor's degree in home economics four years later from Farmington State Teachers College in Maine.

During the late 1950s and 1960s, she was a home economist with Nabisco and later with a bakery in New York City. She moved to Baltimore in 1970 when she went to work as a test kitchen chef at McCormick, first at the company's old Light Street plant and later in Hunt Valley.

After her 1995 retirement, she moved from Carroll County to Atkinson.

She was an accomplished pianist.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. tomorrow at the Lary Funeral Home in Milo.

Miss Kealiher is survived by a sister, Laurel K. Bond of New Market; a brother, Kenneth Kealiher of Old Town, Maine; and several nieces and nephews.
