Kehoe, Elizabeth Jean (Closs)
August 9th, 1919 ~ October 7th, 2018
It is with great sadness that the family of Betty Kehoe announces her passing at Lanark Lodge, Perth on Sunday, October 7th, 2018 at the age of 99 years. She was predeceased by her beloved husband Kenneth James Kehoe (in 1987), her parents John M. and Edith (Legary) Closs, infant daughter Mary Edith Kehoe and siblings Clendon (Julie) Closs, Kenneth Closs, Margaret (late Mark) Mahon and Kathleen (Rodden) McCrea. Betty was the loved and cherished mother of Gerry (Gloria Hart) Kehoe, Edith (Jim) Cordick, Jim (Nancy) Kehoe and Colleen Kehoe. She will be lovingly remembered by her eight grandchildren, her fourteen great grandchildren, her sisters-in-law Sheila, Vivian, Bertha and Eleanor Kehoe. Betty was born in Snow Road, Ontario and married her beloved husband and best friend Ken Kehoe in 1944. They farmed for 25 years in Drummond Township and spent their later years on Brock St. in Perth. Betty was committed to her family and friends, and was a member of the CWL for over 60 years. She will be greatly missed by anyone that had the good fortune to know her. Mom, you are in our prayers and thoughts always but most of all we miss your beautiful smile and warm gentle way. Family and friends may pay their respects at the Blair & Son Funeral Home, 15 Gore St., Perth on Wednesday, October 10th, 2018 from 2:00 to 6:00 P.M. Mass of Christian Burial will be held Thursday, at 10:00 A.M. at St. John's Church, Perth. Interment St. John's Cemetery, Perth. In remembrance of Betty, contributions to the Great War Memorial Hospital Foundation or the Lanark Lodge Memorial Fund would be appreciated.
Your life was a blessing
Your memory a treasure
You are loved beyond word
And missed beyond measure.
