Elinor M. Douty, 87

Elinor M. Douty, a retired chemist and baseball fan, died of cancer Saturday at her home in the Wyman Park Apartments. She was 87.

Born Elinor Moore in Atlanta and raised in Baltimore, she was a 1936 graduate of Forest Park High School and earned a bachelor's degree in chemistry from Goucher College in 1940.


She worked as a chemist at Johns Hopkins Hospital for 45 years until retiring in 1985.

Mrs. Douty had attended Orioles games for 35 years at the old Memorial Stadium. Brooks Robinson and Eddie Murray were her favorite players, friends said. She also liked traveling, attending alumni events at Goucher and doing daily crossword puzzles.


"She had been married for a brief time in the early 1940s to John Douty," said Beatrice A. Krieg, a longtime friend.

She had been a member of the now-closed St. Mark's Methodist Church in Forest Park.

There are no survivors.

Services were Tuesday.
