ELINOR MCKEE Obituary
Feb. 23, 1938 - Jan. 4, 2019 YUKON Elinor "Ann" McKee, age 80, passed away on Jan. 4, 2019. She was born on Feb. 23, 1938, in Vincennes, IN, and in 1960, she married the love of her life, Mike McKee. Ann taught kindergarten and first grade at Central Elementary in Yukon. She loved the children and could be seen many times during recess sitting on top of the monkey bars. After teaching, she helped her husband run their oil-field business. Ann was the backbone and driving force behind all the businesses in which she and Mike were involved. She enjoyed life with family and friends. Her hobbies included traveling, spending time at the lake, golfing, playing bridge with the same ladies for over 45 years, and reading. She was active in Alpha Delta Kappa, Art League, served as Cub Scout Leader and spent many years as a Sunday School teacher. Ann is survived by her husband of 58 years, Mike McKee; her son, Mike McKee Jr and wife Tammy; daughter, Misha Yancey and husband Alan; four grandchildren, Mike McKee III, Kiley Mixon and husband Jeremy, Caitlin Villalobos and husband Matthew, and Allyson Yancey; her three great-grandchildren, Cohen, Adalynn, and Gavin Mixon; sister-in-law, Beth Eby; niece, Nicole and her son Thomas Eby. She was preceded in death by her father, Frank Eby; mother, Florence King Eby; and brother, Charles Harry Eby. The Celebration of Ann's Life will be held Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019, at 2:30 p.m. at the United Methodist Church of the Good Shepherd in Yukon. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Yukon Public Schools Foundation for Excellence.
