Ann Marie “Nancy” (Keenan) Power, 79, died Sunday, October 2, 2022, at South Shore Hospital after a long period of declining health. She was the loving wife and best friend of Kevin D. Power for 42 years.
Born and raised in South Boston, she was a member of St. Brigid’s Parish and was educated at Nazareth High School and Stonehill College. She was the longtime Executive Secretary at Elkus & Manfredi Architects in Boston, but her true passion was volunteering and working for the Brockton Womansplace Crisis Center and the High Point Addiction Treatment Center as a Counselor.
Nancy’s greatest joys were spending time with her grandchildren, her cats and grand dogs, reading, traveling, fabulous dinners out, and concerts with her daughters, family, and friends. An ideal day might be an early wake-up in Aruba to reserve her favorite palapa, reading Jane Austen in the sunshine, spending time laughing with friends and the love of her life Kevin, followed by an amazing dinner at Madame Janettes. And she was always up for a late-night dance marathon at the pier to end the evening.
In addition to her husband, Nancy is survived by her two daughters, the lights of her life, Lynda P. Rudolph and her husband Dennis of Middleboro and Kristen M. Keenan and her wife Emily of Stoughton. She was the loving Grandma of Dennis, Aiden, and Shea Rudolph and Mema to Madison and Lucas Keenan. She was the loving stepmother of Michael and Joan McGonigle and the late Johnny McGonigle and Karen McDonald. She was the sister of the Late William (Virginia) Keenan, Edward (Josie) Keenan, and Thomas Keenan. Nancy is survived by her sister-in-law Eileen Keenan and was the loving aunt of Janet (Peter) Robash, Judith Zarnoch, and the late Thomas Keenan, Jr.
Visiting Hours will be held in the Farley Funeral Home, 358 Park St., (Rt. 27) Stoughton on Sunday, October 9 from 11-2PM with Funeral Prayers at 2 PM. Family and friends are invited to a celebration of Nancy’s life at Kristen and Emily’s house immediately following visiting hours. Address will be provided at the service. We will be listening to her favorite music, eating her favorite meals, watching her beloved Patriots, and sharing wonderful memories. A funeral mass will be held at a later date at St. Brigid’s in South Boston. Donations in Nancy’s memory may be made to Transition House, PO Box 392016 Cambridge, MA 02139, a shelter for women and their children.
