Florence E. (Mahoney) Keras, formerly of Whitman, passed away peacefully Wednesday, December 10, 2014, after a challenging few years with COPD and emphysema. She was predeceased by her loving husband of 54 years, Joseph Keras, and three sisters, Agnes Brennan, Helen Vaughan, and Ann Tonello. Florence is survived by her beloved brother Robert Mahoney; her sister-in-law, Frances Mahoney; and her brother-in-law, Vincent Tonello. She is also survived by her eight children and their families, Kathleen Teahan of Harwich Port, Eileen and Richard Kenealy of Whitman, Ann Sweeney of Falmouth, Sheila and Christopher Asselin of Goffstown, N.H., Neil and Marie Keras of Falmouth, Anthony and Lori Keras of Marshfield, Mary and Dan Pimental of Falmouth, and Elizabeth and David Dmitruk of Taunton. Florence and Joe leave a beautiful legacy of 25 grandchildren, 27 great-grandchildren, and one great great-grandson. From the East Coast to the West Coast and from north to south, Florence leaves nieces, nephews and cousins whom she loved dearly. She dedicated her life to her family.
