Teresa Eileen Willis-Keegan, 58, of Norman, Oklahoma, formerly of Wheaton, Kansas, died peacefully, Wednesday, October 10, 2018, at her home.
Eileen was born on May 25, 1960, in Onaga, Kansas, the daughter of Bernard "Barney" and Joan Horgan Willis. She attended Wheaton schools and graduated in 1978 from Onaga High School.
Eileen was trained as a medical transcriptionist and worked several years as unit secretary at St. Mary's Hospital in Manhattan. She also worked many years as a home health personal care attendant. She also lived in Park City, Kansas and then moved to Norman twenty years ago. In her high school years, Eileen was an avid softball pitcher and enjoyed all sports. She enjoyed volunteering at her local schools doing classroom tutoring and assisted in multiple grade levels. Without question, Eileen's passion was caring for and providing a home for her children, Jon and Katie. She poured her heart and soul into her family. She was known for her willingness to help others. She would prepare food for the neighborhood and class rooms to enjoy. She taught her children to be willing to give to others, not worry about material things and just be themselves.
Eileen married David Keegan. They were later divorced.
Eileen is survived by her children; Jon Keegan and Katie Keegan her ex-husband, David Keegan, all of Norman, Oklahoma; her siblings, Pat Willis-Stambaugh, and Mary Watson, both of Salina, Maureen Lockhart (Jim), Manhattan, and Mike Willis, Wheaton; her nieces, Hannah, Nellie, Molly, SceyDee and nephews, Taber, Casey, Jesse, and Shayler.
