Shirley A. Keeney Obituary
SHIRLEY A. KEENEY, 75, of Riverside, CA, died Wednesday, October 5, 2016 with family at her side after a brutal battle with cancer. She was born January 3, 1941 to George and Genevieve Whitehead Raver in Riverside, CA. On August 13, 1960 in Riverside, CA, she married the love of her life, Hugh Keeney, and they were together until his death on January 30, 2014. After raising her family, she entered a second career as a job trainer with RUSD Project TEAM for disabled teens. Hugh and Shirley moved to Warren, PA, after they retired in 2006. She returned to Riverside to help care for her disabled son-in-law until she became ill. She was a loving and compassionate caregiver her whole life caring for husband, children, her mother, her sisters, nieces and nephews, assorted strays and those with special needs. She truly wasn't happy unless she had someone to take care of. She was a kind and faith-filled woman who will be very dearly missed. She is survived by daughter Micki Monroe of Warren, PA; sons Patrick (Gordon Andersen) of Riverside, CA, and James of Warren, PA; grandchildren David (Kemberly) Keeney of Lake Elsinore, CA, Amanda Monroe, Michael (Cassandra) Monroe, Sarah (Rob) Blackmon and Thomas Keeney all of Warren, PA; six great grandchildren; sister Cathy (Gerry) Bowman of Riverside, CA; brother-in-law Earl (Dorothy) Keeney of Warren, PA; sister-in-law Cheryl (Tony) Catalino of Angola, NY; several nieces and nephews; and friends Nora Rios and Lori Callahan who helped so much during this last year. She was preceded in death by her parents, a sister, Elsie George, a son, George Keeney, and a great granddaughter, Cali Keeney. Services will be held on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 1:30 pm at The River Foursquare Church, 1111 Sixth Street, Norco, CA 92860. Arrangements have been entrusted to Arlington Mortuary in Riverside.
