Stella E. Keeping

Stella E. Keeping

It is with great sadness we announce the peaceful passing of our mother, Stella Elisabeth Keeping on April 6, 2019 surrounded by her loving family.

Stella was a lifetime resident of Whitney Pier. The daughter of Charles and Mary (Kelly) Neville. She was predeceased by her husband, Captain Roderick W. Keeping.

Stella was the last surviving member of her siblings.

She is survived by her daughters, Sylena Keeping (John Hickey), Constance (Leonard) Lu; her sons, Capt. Roderick (Mary) Keeping, Capt. Steven Keeping; her granddaughters, Sarah and Katie; and her great-grandchildren, Jaxxon and Leo. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews along with many friends.

Stella had a long life in which she enjoyed good health until her final days. She travelled extensively and enjoyed the company of many friends and family. She was independent and did things her way until the end.

Our family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to the staff of the ER and An Cala Palliative Care for the care, compassion and kindness that was extended to Stella and our family.

A funeral service to celebrate Stella's life will be held at Holy Redeemer Church at 10 a.m. on Thursday 11th of April with Rev. Paul Murphy officiating. Interment will be held at a later date.

Memorials may be made to the Ana Cala Unit at the CBRH, the SPCA, or charity of choice.
