Shirley Marie Keeley, 74, passed away peacefully, with her loving family by her side, on Thursday February 22, 2018 at her home in Murrells Inlet. She was born on October 22, 1943 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to the late Walter & Martha Henry Pierce.
Along with her parents, Shirley is preceded in passing by her beloved husband of 53 years, James Keeley; their son, James “JJ” Keeley, Jr; her step-father, Chester A. Hermanowicz; and her brother, Tommy Pierce.
Shirley was a spiritual inspiration to many people and friend to all. She was a faithful woman who would gladly offer the shirt from her back, to anyone in need. She was quick with a joke, and loved to laugh. Shirley was warm, welcoming, loving and refused to allow anyone to fuss over her.
Left to cherish her memory is her adoring daughter, Joanna Cribb and her husband, Royce of Hemingway, South Carolina; her granddaughter, Danielle Cribb; grandson, Michael Cribb and his fiancé, Megan; her great-grandson, Brantley Cribb; her brother, John Hermanowicz; as well as her church sisters, Maggie Fancher & Sandy Lynn.

Shirley brought love into every encounter I had with her. I especially loved how she posted Bible verses on Facebook. She provided hope and inspiration on a daily basis. Sending much love and continued prayers for her family. Heaven shines bright with another star 🌟

I can't believe my Dear Sweet Friend is gone. I miss her so much and her ornery laugh. She was my SC sister and I loved her so much! God bless you Shirley, I'm sure you are loving life with our Father, Jim and Jimmy and no longer having any pain and breathing as clear as a bell. Please come visit me sometime, you know I believe I'm Angels! See you again Shirley, I Love you!!
