Evelyn O'Keeffe

April 8, 1927 ~ September 3, 2019 (age 92)

Evelyn O’Keeffe, 92, of Waterways-Moriches, NY passed away September 3, 2019. Evelyn (Evie) was predeceased by her husband John. She is survived by her children Sue, Pat, Ann, Laurie and Diana. Daughter-in-law Pam, and Sons-in-law Tom, Glenn, and Jay. Grandchildren Russ, Kathleen (Mike), Jennifer, Keryn, Tom (Colleen), Chris, Shawn, Kevin, Josh, Ryan, John and 3 great grandchildren Jason, Brynn, and Rylee.

Evelyn was an active participant in life. She skied and golfed into her 90’s and took up painting long after retiring. She played Bridge endlessly and enjoyed other card games. During her working years she was an elementary school teacher, then an entrepreneur- owning her own wildlife prints and framing store. Her family was her most important focus and made memories on cruises, ski trips and many vacations and day trips. She was a constant presence in the lives of her children and grandchildren and will be missed everyday.

Evie made friends and kept them. She has friends for over 70 years, to the nurses in the last hospital stay. Her Waterways family was precious to her and allowed her to stay in her home surrounded by friends and swans on the water.

Visiting hours will be held on Friday - September 6th from 2 - 4 & 7 - 9pm at Robertaccio Funeral Home - Patchogue.  On Saturday - September 7th, family and friends are welcome to gather at Wesche Funeral Home - Center Moriches from 9:00 - 10:00am with a funeral service begining at 10:00am. The following burial will be a private family event when Evie is united with John in the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Center Moriches.
