In Loving Memory of Rebecca “Becky” Keeley

What can you say about Rebecca “Becky” Keeley?

It is extremely difficult to put into words how deeply loved and missed Becky will be.

There’s a Scripture in the Bible where the apostle Paul, addressing the church in Philippi, says: “Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself.”

It’s hard for me to think of anything that sums up the life of Becky Keeley more than these words. It was her never-ending treatment of other people as more important than herself – even until the day she went to rest – that made her life remarkable.

For a second…

I want you to imagine a woman who puts her family, friends, co-workers, associates, and seemingly everyone she encounters before herself and her own needs.

Imagine a woman who – no matter how strong or weak she feels – chooses to put all her energy towards you and your wellbeing instead of her own important and pressing needs of that moment.

Imagine a woman who chooses to use her life giving, giving, and giving even more to other people – even when she, herself, is confronted with challenges that you’d think would make her kind of unselfishness impractical.

If you can imagine this woman, you are imagining Becky Keeley.

Becky was beloved by everybody who had the privilege to know her. Everybody.

Becky was an extraordinary wife and mother who talked about her children and husband to the point you felt like you knew them yourself, even if you didn’t. It’s hard to imagine Becky loving anyone more deeply and crazily than she loved her husband and children.

She was a tremendous friend and was like another member of the family to everyone she was friends with.

Becky’s Service to Connerly & Associates

After years of experience working with insurance companies, title companies and lenders, Rebecca joined Connerly & Associates in 1987 and assisted the firm with its home repair and first time home buyer programs. After the housing market crash, Rebecca’s focus turned to serving our roofing associations.

With more than twenty years with the firm, Rebecca was one of our leaders in membership services and meeting support for all of our clients. If members called our office with inquiries about meetings, accounting and other administrative needs, chances are they spoke with Rebecca. “Association management is old fashioned customer service,” she said. With this guiding ethic at heart, Rebecca took pride in offering members a level of quality service that showed their value to us.

To say the least, Becky was an exceptional employee who went beyond what was needed in everything she did. She was loved dearly by our staff members and all our clients. She will be missed beyond words.
