Patricia A. Keeley, nee Comley, 77, of O'Fallon, Ill., born Oct. 29, 1936, in East St. Louis, Ill., died Friday, July 4, 2014, at her residence.
Patricia was a member of St. Henry Catholic Church, Belleville, Ill.
She was preceded in death by her husband of 41 years, Andrew F. Keeley, whom she married Feb. 1, 1958, and who died on July 29, 1999; her parents, George and Delia, nee Lemaire, Comley; two brothers, George E. Comley, and Chuck Comley; and a sister, Della Simmons.
Surviving are her sisters, Eleanor Scharsch of Lebanon, Ill., Anita (George) Hunt of Venice, Fla., and Debbie (John) Carney of Fairview Heights, Ill.; a brother, Jim (Pat) Comley of Fairview Heights, Ill.; and very special nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
Pat also leaves behind many dear friends who accompanied her on trips and just generally bumming around, golfing and playing cards.
Pat had a great sense of humor and never found a board game she didn't love; and love to win, especially Scrabble. She'll be missed by all who knew her, and all who met her along the way are better for it.
In lieu of all other gifts, memorials may be made to Hospice of Southern Illinois, or to Hands To Heal. Condolences may be expressed to the family online at www.rennerfh.com.
