Mary A. McKeown (nee Barnes) of Williamstown, NJ, passed away on January 7, 2020 at the age of 77 years. Devoted wife of John F. McKeown. Beloved mother of John P. McKeown (Lisa) of Williamstown, NJ and Tracy Grimes (Sam) of Mantua, NJ. Proud grandmother of John E. McKeown, Kathleen McKeown, Abigail Grimes, and Matthew Grimes. Dear sister of Lorraine Curcio (the late Anthony), Shirley Griffith (the late Howard) of Philadelphia, PA, the late Ada May Anning, the late Thomas Barnes, the late Nelson Barnes, the late David Barnes, the late Walter Barnes, the late Aileen Heger, and the late Cassie Zalot. She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Mary was a deeply devoted wife, mother and grandmother, and loved nothing more than spending time with her grandkids. Christmas was her favorite holiday, as it served as a time to draw all those she loved in close to her. Mary enjoyed cooking and baking and was a talented cake decorator. She was nothing if not a people person and could strike up a conversation with just about anyone she met. Mary liked to travel and to spend time outside beautifying her gardens. She enjoyed taking bus trips with her sister-in-law Jean. She was passionate about politics and kept a close watch on the day to day political climate by watching Fox News. She never hesitated to contact a politician to voice her concerns or offer her support. Mary will be deeply and truly missed by those who were fortunate enough to have had her in their lives. Viewing will be Saturday, January 11, 2020 from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM at Earle Funeral Home, 122 W. Church St., Blackwood, NJ 08012, where a funeral service will begin at 12:00 PM.
