Obituary of Madeleine Elizabeth Keenan
Madeleine Elizabeth Keenan (née Messaros), age 82, passed away peacefully at her Stratford home among family on October 27, 2020, the 58th anniversary of her marriage to her husband John Dennis (Josh) Keenan. She has left a hole in our lives that can never be replaced. We can only hope she is reunited with her loving parents Frank Charles Messaros, Jr. and Virginia Eleanor (née Lowe), and her sister Carol Mary Kleponis, whom she loved dearly.
Madge, as she was known to most, left an imprint in our minds and on our hearts that will stay with us forever.
She leaves behind her dear husband Josh, whom she met on a blind date. Her sons John (Antonio), Michael (Maureen) and Matthew who all live in Stratford. Her four granddaughters Cheryl Keenan, Kelly Hutchins (Sam), Cindy Fox (Randy), Courtney Keenan (Stephen), and six great grandsons Nicholas and Antonio Nigro, Grady and Finnegan Hutchins, Keenan and Connor Joshua Fox.
She loved spending time in Stone Harbor and the Poconos. She would make time to listen to music instead of TV.
Her loved ones describe her as kind, caring, patient, sweet, funny, and loved her sense of humor.
She grew up in the Germantown section of Philadelphia, graduated from Little Flower Catholic High School for Girls, and Gwynedd Mercy Junior College. She was retired from the Lower Camden County Regional High School District. She was a member of St. Luke R.C. Church, the Altar & Rosary Society of St. Luke, Stratford Woman’s Club and Stratford Red Hats.
