Obituary of Eileen Locke

Please share a memory of Eileen to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Eileen Dolores Locke (MacKain), 85 of Upper Township, formerly of Linwood and Ocean City,

New Jersey passed away peacefully on December 17th 2022 surrounded by love with her

family and our heavenly father at her side. Eileen left behind her loving daughter Debra

Battersby (Chuck) and other daughter Donna Farren (Joseph); grandchildren Jamie Willard,

Jeniffer Battersby, and James Crouch (David); great-grandchildren Hailey, Hannah, Fritz, Olivia,

and two furry great-grandchildren Molly and Hunter- as well as many beloved nieces, nephews,

friends and family members that were so dear to her heart from the good old days at Ocean City

High School.

Eileen was a graduate of Ocean City High School in 1955 when she was crowned Miss Ocean

City that same year. Eileen loved her early days working at Mac’s Restaurant and later loved her

career as a NJ Realtor throughout South Jersey. She was a lifetime member of Eastern Star in

Linwood and Ocean City where she held many titles including Matron and many other titles

contributing to charitable works in partnership with the Masons. Eileen was best known for her

love of her husband, daughters, family, and friends. She will always be fondly remembered for

her love of red lipstick and her gregarious laughter. Eileen enjoyed going to dinner at The Crab

Trap and Dino's. Eileen loved knitting and crafts, spending her leisure painting, knitting, and

needlepoint. Eileen spent her free time with the ladies of the knitting club which she greatly

missed due to the years of the pandemic.

Our family would like to extend a sincere and heartfelt thank you for the care and attention from

Karen, Eunice, Carol, Madeline, and the entire Journey Hospice team for your diligence in such

short notice. Funeral services will be private due to her unwavering request and concerns of

health and safety to all those that surrounded her. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St

Peter's United Methodist Church 501 E. 8th Street Ocean City New Jersey 08226 on behalf of

Eileen and James Locke.
