On February 25, 1964, Eastern Air Lines Flight 304 left New Orleans International Airport for Atlanta, en route to New York, at 2:01 a.m. Central Standard Time, and disappeared from radar at 2:10 a.m., crashing into Lake Pontchartrain about 20 miles northeast of the city. There were no survivors among the 51 passengers and 7 crew members on board. The main cabin of the aircraft was never found. The final findings of the CAB/NTSB were issued in 1966, indicating that the aircraft encountered severe turbulence from which there was not enough altitude to recover. The memorial stone at the Garden of Memories contains the names of 32 victims of this tragic accident.

According to a Corpus Christi newspaper article, Renate Ackermann, whose name was given as Kenata Ackerman, was from Dusseldorf, Germany.
