Rockland — Following a brief illness, Louise T. Kearly, 83, died peacefully at home Friday, Aug. 10, 2018, with her daughter at her side. Born in Rockland Nov. 1, 1934, the daughter of Arnold and Alice (Williams) Allen, she grew up in Rockland and attended local schools, graduating from Rockland High School in 1952.

On Aug. 28, 1954, she married Kenneth W. Kearly Sr. in Rockland. Together they made their home on Crescent Street, where Louise resided her entire adult life.

Active in her community, she was a member of the American Legion Post No. 1 and the Emblem Club with the Rockland Lodge of Elks. Together with her husband, she enjoyed spending winters in Florida, up to and including this year. She was a strong, independent woman, and will be sadly missed by all.

Kearly,Jr., and his wife, Sharel, of Chesapeake, Va.; her daughter, Kelly Landers, and her husband, Steve, of Valrico, Fla.; four grandchildren, Kenneth W. Kearly III, Denielle L.
