Esther M. (Mahoney) Keenan, 90, of Worcester died Sunday, June 28 in Holy Trinity Nursing Center.
Her loving husband of 51 years, Arthur L. Keenan, Sr. died in 1997. She leaves two sons, Richard Keenan and his wife, Judy of Worcester and Lee Keenan, Jr. and his wife Beth of Shrewsbury; two daughters, Barbara Keenan-Asiaf of West Roxbury and Kathleen Keenan of Colorado Springs, CO; six grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren; two sisters, Gertrude Benoit of Worcester and Patricia Mahoney of South Attleboro; and a sister-in-law and devoted friend, Betty Mahoney.

Esther worked for many years at Vernon Drugstore and then at the Westboro District Court, before retiring. She was a member of Our Lady of the Angels Church.
The last 20 years of her life was centered around her children and grandchildren. Her great-grandchildren brought a “special joy” to her remaining days.
