Keefe, Nanci C.




Nanci C. Keefe, age 64, of Plum, passed away on June 30, after a brief illness. She is survived by her husband, Daniel J. Murray, her daughter Kiley C. Keefe (husband Nick Graber), and granddaughter Revy C. Graber. She is the daughter of William J. Keefe and the late Martha M. Keefe. She is also survived by sisters Jodi Keefe-McCurdy and Kathryn M. McCurdy (husband John C. McCurdy), and brother John F. Keefe. She was preceded in death by her brother Robert J. Keefe. Her life was enriched by six nieces and nephews: Kimberly, Michael, Daniel, Grant, John, and Lindsay. Nanci thrived in her business career. At various times, she served as the director of a cancer institute, the director of an Alzheimer’s research program, as an officer of a large health insurance organization, and as a consultant to certain medical groups and to individual physicians and group practices. More than anything else in this domain, she enjoyed consulting and, with it, the challenge of invigorating and expanding business opportunities and enlarging community resources. Nanci was a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend as well as an astute professional and businesswoman. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh and her master’s degree from Duquesne University—each degree in psychology. Family members and others who had the privilege of knowing her admired her courage, her wisdom, her tenacity, her compassion, her selflessness, and her great good humor. We knew her passion for her German shepherds and for preparing dishes that featured colorful peppers, sometimes with scalding red hot lurking there to ambush the unwary. She loved words, she loved writing (even in countless grant proposals and reports). Family and friends will miss her affection and counsel, her mischievous smile and quick wit. Above all else, we observed every day, kindness informed her relationships. We will miss her beauty, reflected in so many ways. Her memory will be a lasting treasure as we mourn this terrible loss.Private family services were entrusted to BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION & ALTERNATIVE SERVICES INC. Oakmont
