Keough, Patricia Anne WEST SAND LAKE Patricia Anne Keough, 63, loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, passed away at home surrounded by her family on Wednesday, March 12, 2014 after a long illness. Born and raised in Tarrytown, she was the daughter of the late John P. and Lena C. Madden. She was a 1972 graduate of Russell Sage College, where she earned a bachelor of science degree in nursing.

Keough and his wife Nicole of Menands; her daughter, Leanne J.
