In the early hours of Nov.29, our beloved Dawn was gathered to her heavenly Father’s arms. She is pre-deceased by her grand-parents, her aunt Sheila Dermody, and her mother-in-law Patricia Keeler. She is survived by her loving husband Scott Keeler, daughters Catie and Jessica, sister-friend Korri Maloney, sister Kelly (Tim) Bartlett, brother Noel (Korrina) Jervis, mother Sharon (Gordon) Hand, father Hans (Margaret) Sanou, father-in-law Garth Keeler, sister-in-law Alison(Corey) Daly and various aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends.
Dawn has always loved caring for people as evidenced by her choice of profession, nursing. Even after her illness prevented her from working, she continued to find new ways to care for and bring joy to other people’s lives. This included even using her illness to intentionally bring people together. Part of Dawn’s legacy will be the relationships that were forged because of her willingness to share her journey with others. Although cancer took her from us, she didn’t lose the battle. With every new diagnosis she found something to celebrate and taught many of us to do the same.
The celebration of her life and the life she brought to others will be held at the Key City Theatre on Saturday, Dec. 7 @ 6:30 pm. In lieu of flowers, should family and friends so desire, memorial donations may be contributed to a trust fund for Dawn’s daughters. The trust fund has been set up at the Credit Union. Donations can also be dropped off at Connect Church and Bridge Interiors.
