Our hearts break with the loss of Ann Reeves Keene of Monrovia, MD, who left us too soon on July 27, 2022, after a short but valiant battle with brain cancer. Although this horrible disease robbed her of mobility and speech ability, she remained the sweetest person throughout and was much loved by all her caregivers.
Ann was born on March 22, 1954 in Baumholder, West Germany to the late Mary and Donald Reeves. A military brat, she became the proud older sister of David (Nancy), Mary Kay (Herm Hertog), Timothy (Ann Regis), Nancy (Chris Flores) and Joseph (Susan). Ann grew up in various military postings to include Louisiana, Virginia, Turkey, Kansas, and Maryland. Ann graduated from Oxon Hill High School in 1972 and earned her associate degree from Prince George's Community College. She worked at Toys r Us where she met her beloved husband, Jim Keene whom she married on May 26, 1984. She worked in various capacities for IBM, Loral and Lockheed-Martin, retiring in 2011. Nothing made her happier than when her siblings visited her so she could cook up a storm and make them comfortable, providing a home base for them as they travelled the world for various military assignments. Ann had a soft spot in her heart for animals, especially her cats Skipper, Cheevis and Peachy. She and Jim enjoyed their forays to Atlantic City, Vegas and Laughlin to sharpen their video poker skills, and hosting pool parties in their back yard. Ann was the premier seamstress, and there wasn't anything she couldn't churn out from her sewing room.
Left to forever cherish Ann's memory, beautiful smile and generous soul are her husband, Jim, stepson Jesse Keene, grandchildren Kristina and Aiden, her brothers and sisters, nephew Christian Reeves, nieces Jessie and Sarah Reeves, and brother-in-law Donald Trageser.
The family wishes to thank the wonderful caregivers at the Kline Hospice House.
Ann's memorial service will be held at 10 am on September 9, 2022 at St Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Church, 4103 Prices Distillery Road
Ijamsville, MD 21754. In lieu of flowers, to honor Ann's memory, please donate to the veteran or pet charity of your choice.
