Eva Mae Keeton, 75, of Miami, Oklahoma, passed away May 11, 2020, with her family by her side. She was born to the late Virgil and Genevieve Harmon, October 10, 1944, in Miami, Oklahoma. Eva Mae was a proud 1963 graduate of Afton High School. She married the love of her life, Bill Howard Keeton, in 1964, and her husband of 58 years survives her. Eva Mae is survived by one daughter, Cynthia Keeton Brown, and one grandchild, Lillian Keeton Swingle. In addition, she is survived by one brother Virgil Harmon, Jr. and his wife Jean Harmon, two sisters-in-law and their husbands: George and Connie Roberts and Paul and Carol Smith, both of Miami. She will live on in the memory of her nieces and nephews, who she treasured, and that added happiness to her life. Eva Mae will be an everlasting impression on the hearts of many distant relatives, which are too many to name but who loved her and will sorrow no less.
Eva Mae’s earthly body succumbed to complications associated with advanced-stage dementia. She is now residing in her heavenly residence.
Eva Mae Keeton was an exceptional lady; she was a loving wife, mother, and awesome grandma. She enjoyed going to the lake, camping and bass fishing with Bill Keeton, working her flowerbeds every season, going to the farm, and taking care of her sweet granddaughter Lily. Eva Mae was always kind, caring, and was loved without end by her family and friends. She will be dearly missed.
Eva Mae & her family would like to take this time to express their gratitude to the many people who gave her assistance and support during the difficult times in her life. Thank you to her dear friends Connie Roberts and Janice Buck. The compassionate care provided by Integris Baptist Regional Hospital Nursing and Hospice staff were incredible and a comfort to us. No, thank you is enough.
