Peggy Joyce (Ramsey) Keenan Obituary
Peggy Joyce Keenan (Ramsey)

Peggy, age 72, died January 16, 2013 in Sacramento, CA. She was born in Grand Island, Nebraska on September 5, 1940. After graduating high school, Peggy completed her cosmetology license and began her career as a
hair stylist. In 1960, she married Jerry Keenan and they set out on a life filled with joy, laughter, challenges, rewards and adventure. In 1971 they moved to Southern California. Peggy loved being a wife, mom, aunt, and grandma. Friends quickly became part of the family, and family was number one in her book. Peggy was often described as a "social butterfly" for her unending need to visit with anyone. Going to the grocery store could take hours because she would stop to talk to so many people. Her amazing social skills served her well in her second career in retail and as the receptionist for a large manufacturing company. She was a great mom and in her later years a great friend to her children and grandchildren. She would listen with a non-judgmental ear and provided support and encouragement in their endeavors. She has many accomplishments in her life, but considered her children,
grandchildren and great-grandchildren her greatest. She is survived by her son, Gregory Keenan (Valerie); daughters,
Melanie Boyer (Ralph) and Shelly Kalmer (Howard) and grandchildren, Jesseca Kauffman (Merritt), Daniele Keenan, Spenser Keenan, Hailey and Keenan Boyer, great-grandsons, Luke and Wesley Kauffman; brother, Jerald Ramsey; sisters, Mary Talbot, and Cheral Trueman.
