Brenda Kay Keeler

December 31, 1952 - April 4, 2022

Brenda Kay Keeler, 69, of Clayton, DE, passed away peacefully on April 4, 2022, after almost 2 years of bravely battling cancer.

Brenda was born in Bluefield, WV, on December 31, 1952, to the late Harvey J. Dills and Golda J. (Perdue) Dills. Her family moved to Delaware, where she graduated from William Penn High School. Brenda spent the next 20 years of her life providing a comfortable home for her husband and 4 children, always making sure the house was clean, filled with smells of her amazing West Virginia cooking.  Brenda went to work for Willey Farms in the produce department, where she loved getting to know her customers and co-workers, until she was too ill to work in late 2020. She loved the beach and sunbathing, NASCAR, camping and hunting, planting flowers and trees, her many cats, working on cars which she learned from her dad, Hallmark movies and Westerns, and above all, she cherished time with her family.

Brenda is survived by her children, Jennifer Galloway (Wes), Stephany Baize, Michael Keeler, Jr., and Steven Keeler. She also leaves behind her siblings, Ronald Dills (Margaret), Deborah Dills, Michael Dills and Darryl Dills (Brigette), many cherished cousins, nieces and nephews, and grandchildren Jaclyn, Jamisen, Thomas, Wesley, Lawson, Eryn, Destyni, and Brooklynn, and her beautiful great-granddaughter Naomi. She was predeceased by her parents, her beloved brother Wayne K. Dills, and her son-in-law, Thomas E. Baize, Jr.

The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Bayhealth Medical and Radiation Oncology, as well as the staff at Season’s Hospice and Christiana Care, for their great care and compassion. At her request, the family will have a celebration of life at a later date.

14 Condolences for Brenda Kay Keeler

  • Brenda was one of the most loving people I have ever had the blessing of knowing! She tried to keep her extended family close by always having everyone over for picnics. She sent pictures of her beautiful kids to all of us on a regular basis. She really tried to keep us all connected. She was just always so giving. Brenda was an amazing mother and taught me how to be a better mom just by watching her! I know she will be deeply missed by her family here, but I know she is reunited with so many that had gone before her. What a glorious day that will be, when our Jesus we will see…and forever we will be with the One who died for me!
