Obituary for Rebecca "Becky" Kealy

Rebecca Lyn Kealy, 39, of Brookings, Ore., passed away in Crescent City, Calif. on February 17, 2013 following a 4-year battle with Hodgkins Lymphoma. Rebecca was born October 10, 1973 in Tawas City, Mich. to Stephen and Virginia (Smith) Keller. She grew up and attended school there. Becky, as she was known by family and friends, then went on to college in Oklahoma where she earned an Associate’s Degree and served in the United States Air Force. She later served in the Air National Guard while pursuing a teaching degree at Texas State University and, due to the September 11th terrorist attacks, was called back to active duty in the US Air Force. Becky received an honorable discharge at the rank of Staff Sergeant. While in the Air Force, her primary duty was as a surgical assistant, a career she continued for several years as a civilian. Becky married Dr. Ryan Kealy in San Marcos, Tex. on May 14, 2002. The couple lived there and in various cities in North Carolina before moving to Brookings, Ore. in August of 2012. Becky loved to crochet, bake, hike and snow ski. Most of all, though, Becky loved being a mother to her three children. She will be missed by all who knew her. Survivors include her husband, Dr. Ryan Kealy of Brookings, children, Aryn Cabrece Kealy, Claire Elise Kealy and Jackson Reis Kealy, all of Brookings, mother and stepfather, Virginia and Andrew DalPizzol of Harrisville, Mich., father and stepmother, Steve and Denise Keller of West Branch, Mich., sisters and brothers-in-law, Leah and Scott Schesser of Iwakuni, Japan, Erin and Chris McGowan of Saginaw, Mich., brother and sister-in-law, Andrew and Kelly Keller of Las Vegas, Nev. Private services and interment were held in Brookings. Condolences may be expressed online at www.redwoodmemorial.net.
