O’KEEFE, Dorothy Illeana

September 17, 1931 – Calgary, Alberta
November 29, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Dorothy O’Keefe of Calgary, AB, passed peacefully surrounded by her children on Thursday, November 29, 2018 at the age of 87 years.

Dorothy was born and raised in Calgary, AB and was a true lover of the outdoors. There was no place that Dorothy would rather be than sitting around the campfire making memories with her friends and family, especially her grandchildren. No matter the weather, summer weekends were spent camping at Rocky, knitting and cross stitching while keeping a keen eye out for wool unravelling Griffons.
She was a very dedicated quilter producing hundreds of the most beautiful pieces of art. Dorothy looked forward to entering her quilts every year at Heritage Park and was one of the original quilt angels volunteering for the Festival of Quilts.

Dorothy is survived by her daughter Patricia O’Keefe; son Scott and daughter-in-law Catherine O’Keefe; daughter Susan O’Keefe and son-in-law Rob Armstrong; and grandchildren, Jeffrey and Kimberley (Noah).

Dorothy was predeceased by her husband Thomas and her son Danny O’Keefe.

A gathering will be held on December 15, 2018 at 2:00pm at the St Andrews Heights Community Association, 2504 – 13th Ave NW, Calgary. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Alzheimer Society of Alberta and the Northwest Territories, Administrative Office, 10531 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton AB T5H 4K1. Tel: (1-866) 950-5465, www.alzheimer.ab.ca .
