Etta Keys

We gather here today to honor the life, love, and legacy of our beloved Etta, who was called to eternal rest on December 18, 2023, at 64. Etta was born on November 29, 1959, in Sacramento, CA, the 2nd child of Herman and Peggy Keys.

Throughout her remarkable journey, Etta touched the lives of countless people with her kind heart, infectious laughter, and unwavering strength. She was a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, friend, and confidante, and she held a special place in the hearts of those fortunate enough to know her.

Etta graduated from John F. Kennedy High School and began her journey in the workforce doing retail sales, childcare, and caregiving. Etta’s tenacious spirit led her to work for over 20 years and retire as a San Juan School District dispatcher.

Etta was a beacon of love and compassion, extending her care and support to those in need. Her selfless devotion to her family and friends had an unforgettable impact. She cherished every moment spent with loved ones, creating lasting memories.

Although we mourn her loss, we are comforted by the knowledge that she now rests in eternal peace, reunited with loved ones who have gone before her.

Etta is survived by her son, Geouard (Peggy), eight grandchildren, six great-grandchildren, and three on the way: Stepmother Shelia, four sisters, Jeannine (Eugene), Jillanna, Abigail (Carl), and Manetta (Bobby), and one brother, Maurice, and many Nieces and Nephews. Etta was preceded in death by Gerome her son and older sister Pam.

Let us remember her with fondness, gratitude, and love. May her spirit guide us on our journeys, reminding us to embrace each day and cherish the gift of life.
