Obituary of Sadie May Keeping

Sadie May Keeping March 18, 1943 – May 20, 2022 It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that the family of the late Sadie May Keeping announce the passing of a loving wife, and a wonderful mother on Friday, May 20, 2022, with her loving family by her side at Dr. Charles LeGrow Health Centre in Port Aux Basques at the age of 79 years. Born in Francois, Sadie was the daughter of the late Matthew and Janet (née Durnford) Priddle.

Pink and Nathan Keeping, and special friend Anne Fudge Sadie was a selfless, kind hearted person; a loving wife and a proud mother, of all that her daughters accomplished. Sadie spent her life as a homemaker, and in her downtime loved to spend time at her cabin in Peter Strides where she loved playing cards, moose hunting, berry picking with her husband Austin, and in later years, her facebook time. Sadie was known for her wonderful cookie making, her strong stature, and her strong faith, as she started every morning with prayer and her bible, and she will be missed by all who knew her.
