Dolly Keen

Today we remembered Dorothy (Dolly) May Keen’s life. In her 103rd Year, which was a remarkable achievement it was reason to celebrate a lovely lady who had lived a contented and full life.

This family has good reason to remember her fondly, being our neighbour for some fifty years or so.  She was always supporting, always helpful and always generous.  We missed her when she moved away but our memories of her will linger on.

R.I.P Mrs Keen
