Helen Bermingham Keller Obituary
HELEN BERMINGHAM KELLER went to be with our Lord on Friday, September 24, 2010, at the age of 81. Her final days were spent surrounded by loving family. She was born September, 11, 1929, in New Rochelle, NY to the late Katherine and Val Bermingham. Helen was the youngest of nine siblings. She grew up in New Rochelle, attended St. Gabriel's High School, and went on to Secretarial College before securing a position in Manhattan. In 1952 she married Norman W. Keller, who was in his second year of medical school. Norm maintained a medical practice in Greenwich until 1992, while she was homemaker, and they became parents of nine children. Survivors include eight children, Laurie, Peter, Connie, Bob, Ken, Kathy, Scott and David, and 24 grandchildren. Helen is also survived by one sibling, her sister Edith Cavanagh. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 56 years, Norman in 2008; her first-born son Norman JR in 1958, and seven siblings, Mary, Betty, Jack, Tom, Sue, Peggy and Bob. Helen has been a lifelong dedicated member of the Catholic Church, which has always served as her foundation and guide. She has supported a large number of Catholic and other charities, especially those that have assisted displaced refugees. Helen loved to play bridge with her sisters and friends. She was an avid reader, followed politics passionately, and loved children. She will be remembered sitting at her window, calmly working her crosswords on quiet afternoons, the birds at her feeder. Calling hours will be at the Leo P. Gallagher & Sons Funeral home, 31 Arch St., Greenwich, on Monday, September 27th from 6 to 8 pm. A funeral Mass will be at St. Michael's Church, 469 North St., Greenwich, on Tuesday, September 28th, at 11 am. Interment will follow in Putnam Cemetery 35 Parsonage Road Greenwich.
