JEAN KEELER (published on July 12, 2008)



JEAN KEELER 1922-2008 It is with deep sorrow that we announce the peaceful passing of Jean Keeler, devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and aunt on July 6, 2008 at Kildonan Personal Care Center. Jean is lovingly remembered by her son Ross and wife Linda (Emma); and his children, Michael, Danny and Heather: daughter Suzan and husband Murray (Scott and Kayla): her daughter-in-law Johnna Keeler and her son Patrick and wife Joanne (Veronica); and her brotherin-law Dan (Pat) Keeler. Jean was predeceased by her husband Bruce, her son Richard, her parents Nick and Nelly Spilchuk, her brother Ed Spencer and sister Anne Kissenko. Jean was born on September 12, 1922 in Pine Ridge, Manitoba on her parents homestead. She moved to Winnipeg with her parents at an early age where she then attended Isaac Newton School and later on Success Business College. In 1942 she married Bruce Keeler and the two of them made a home where they lovingly raised their three children. Bruce and Jean were married for 62 years before Bruce's passing in 2005. Jean was a devoted mother and wife. She dedicated her life to her family. She was known for her ability to remember everyone's birthdays and anniversaries, and she was always interested in other people's families. Jean was a long time member of the Blessed Virgin Mary Parish and was a member of the U.C.W.L. for many years. The family would like to thank all the staff at Kildonan Personal Care Center for caring for Jean for the last year and a half. Funeral Service will be held on Monday, July 14 at 10:00 a.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel, 1442 Main St. Interment will follow in Holy Family Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations in Jean's memory may be made to a charity of choice. An online book of condolences may be signed at www.cropo.com 586-8044
