Judith A. McKeever

Aug 08, 2017

Camden — Judith Ann McKeever, age 70, passed away peacefully beside her husband, at her second home on Damariscotta Lake in Nobleboro, July 31, 2017.

She shall be remembered for starting Heartline at the Camden YMCA, which aided people with heart conditions seeking a healthy exercise regimen. In 1978, she also cofounded the Newcomers Club, which welcomed new people who had moved to the Midcoast. She was a longtime exercise instructor, diving coach and an avid tennis player.

For more than 30 years, she was a notable, talented interior designer, often decorating the homes of some of Maine’s most prominent individuals and celebrities. But she will be most remembered for being a loving mother of two children, Eugene D. "Mac" McKeever III and his wife Jill of Portland, Crystal L. McKeever of Appleton and her grandson, Jonathan Eugene Delbert McKeever IV; but most of all, her husband, Gene. Judy is also missed by her brother, Dr. Robert W, Beebe, and his wife, Annette, of Portland; her sisters, Debbie Hobak and her husband, Dr. James Hobak, of Chattanooga, Tenn., Jeanne A. "Crickett" Beebe-Byrd of Minneapolis; as well as several nieces and nephews. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

An informal gathering of friends and family will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 24, at Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock St., Rockland.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society, New England Division Inc., 1 Main St. Suite 300, Topsham, ME 04086-1240 or Relay for Life at http//relay.acsevents.org
