Bridget Dolan O’Keefe
Bridget Dolan O’Keefe, age 53, died peacefully in her sleep on September 6, 2018 in Overland Park, KS, after losing a hard fought battle with cancer. While Bridget was taken too early, she lived life to the fullest. Everyone who came in contact with her loved her and her happy Irish spirit. She was known as the ‘favorite aunt’ by all her nieces and nephews and will be missed by her family and the many friends whose lives she touched. She is survived by her mother, Maura Larkin O’Keefe Galloup; her sister, Tracey O’Keefe Hopper; her brothers and sisters-in-law: Larkin and Kristi O’Keefe and Dan and Deidra O’Keefe; her nieces and nephews: Bailey and Stephen Hopper; Kate, Matt and Molly O’Keefe; Darrian, Dolan and Dylan O’Keefe; and her boyfriend, Ryan Halsey. She is preceded in death by her father, Terry O’Keefe, and stepfather, Gene Galloup. Services will be held Friday, September 14th at 1:30pm at Ascension Catholic Church in Overland Park, KS. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to KU Endowment, 3901 Rainbow Boulevard, Mail Stop 3012, Kansas City, KS 66160, to benefit colon cancer research at The University of Kansas Cancer Center.
