Maurice Francis Keaveny

2/3/1930 — 5/30/2016

Maurice Francis Keaveny born Feb 3, 1930 in Morton, MN to Patrick and Hattie Keaveny; the sixth of seven children. He had a life-long passion for big band music, playing the trombone and baritone in high school. He continued playing with local bands during his late teen years and while attending Mankato Teacher's College, and until his enlistment in the Air Force. Throughout life Maurice continued to enjoy the likes of Glen Miller and Lawrence Welk. He is remembered by friends and family for recalling, from memory, everyone's birthday and anniversary, and always sharing his best wishes with a humorous greeting card. Whether a game of cribbage, BINGO, fishing, a trip to O'Gara's, or tackling a stack of scratch-offs, Maurice was always eager to participate in the next 'event'. He followed the Twins, Gophers and Vikings and could recite complete team rosters, as well as the latest game scores and team standings. On a summer day you'd likely find him sitting in a rocking chair listening to a Twins game on the radio. Maurice always had a job of some sorts at the Veteran's Home in Minneapolis where he lived for several years. Working was very important to him. As a result, he postponed retirement to the point that he physically could not work any longer. Maurice led a simple, humble life that centered around his Catholic faith and strong family values. He passed-away peacefully on Memorial Day, May 30, 2016.

Maurice is survived by his brother-in-law, Bernard Frank; and 23 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by sisters and brothers, Mary Johanneck (Fran), Harriet Schroeder (George), Arthur Keaveny (Madonna), William Keaveny (Margaret), Helen Keaveny, and Joan Frank.
