Nancy Helen Keeton

March 3, 1930 ~ August 30, 2020 (age 90)


Nancy Helen Keeton, age 90, passed away August 30, 2020 at Magnolia Village, Bowling Green, Kentucky.  Born on March 3, 1930 the Tolliver Kentucky native was preceded in death by her father, the late John S. O’Hair, her mother Beatrice Taulbee O’Hair Vineyard, her step-father Luther Vineyard, her sister Norma Jean (O’Hair) Baxter and her ex-husband Elzie Keeton. 

Raised in the heights of the Great Depression and World War II, Nancy often traveled between Kentucky and Cincinnati for her education and later work.  She always felt privileged to have attended Hazel Green Academy during her teen years. In 1959 Nancy moved to Sarasota, Florida where she lived and worked for the next fifty years.  Nancy (Nana) always had time for her children, 8 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren.  She had the ability to make you feel special.  This remarkable lady will be missed. 

Nancy is survived by four children, Beatrice (George) Sowards of Bowling Green, Kentucky:  Dwight (Susan) Keeton, of Sarasota, Florida:  Martha (Kenneth) Parks of Middletown, Ohio, and Sandy (Keith) Bradley of Sarasota, Florida.   

A cremation was planned with a service to be scheduled later in her beloved Wolfe County, Hazel Green, Kentucky.

The family wishes to thank all the care givers and personnel at Magnolia Village.
