Lola Mae Eisenrauch, a retired liquor store owner, died of renal failure Thursday at her Parkville home of more than half a century. She was 82.

She was a member of the Women's Auxiliary of the Parkville American Legion post and staged teen sock-hops for its youth organization in the 1960s.
"In the early 1960s, it was a big local event every Friday night," said her daughter, Cynthia Jean Eisenrauch of Parkville.
Services were held yesterday in Towson.
Survivors also include a son, William Karl Eisenrauch III of Ellicott City; another daughter, Carol Ann Eisenrauch of Los Angeles; a stepbrother, Kenneth Miles of Brandywine; and three grandchildren. Her 1949 marriage to William Karl Eisenrauch Jr. ended in divorce in the mid-1960s.
