Alicia M. Keegan

Baileyville, Kansas

04/16/1964 - 02/23/2020

Alicia Marie Keegan, 55, of Baileyville, Kansas died unexpectedly on Sunday, February 23, 2020 at the Nemaha Valley Community Hospital in Seneca.

Alicia was born on April 16, 1964 in Marysville to Ken and Arleta Schmitz Martin. She attended St. Gregory’s Catholic School and graduated from Marysville High School in 1982. She went to work for Merry Marshall Manor for a short time during her youth. Alicia was later employed by CR Industries in Seneca, there she met Patrick.

On September 15, 1990, Alicia married Patrick G. Keegan at St. Gregory Catholic Church in Marysville. She continued to work at CR for a couple more years; but then to this union they added two sons and a daughter, so she made the choice to be a “stay at home Mom.” She was a dedicated mother first and foremost; she treasured her childrenAlicia also ran a small day care out of her home.

Alicia was a member of Sacred Heart Parish, the Altar Society and was the Director of the Junior-Senior Religious Education and CYO Sponsor. She participated in Relay for Life, was a member of the KANZA Chapter of OCTA and loved her volunteer work. Alicia had many interests and hobbies– genealogy, reading, puzzles and gardening to name a few.

She was preceded in death by her father, Ken Martin and her father-in-law, Bill Keegan.

She is survived by her husband of 29 ½ years, Patrick; two sons, Donovan Keegan of Baileyville and Shea Keegan of Seneca; a daughter Kiera (Jordan Pulliam) Keegan of Cherokee, Kansas; her mother, Arleta Martin of Marysville; siblings, Kirk (Jodi) Martin of Marysville, Jason (Theresa) Martin of Belleview, Nebraska and Quinn (Terah) Martin of Marysville; six nieces and five nephews; her mother-in-law, Carol Keegan of Baileyville; and a brother-in-law, Jim (Barb) Keegan of Hemingford, Nebraska.

      Deepest sympathies to the family. Alicia will be truly missed. She wore many hats but was truly invested in her family and volunteering. She was all about community. Her smile and gentle and caring nature, are infectious. I cannot thank Alicia enough for her love of life and spreading joy to all she met. Rest in peace dear friend.
