Nancy Keathley

April 27, 1942 — January 8, 2022

Nancy Gail Adams Keathley was born April 27th, 1942 to the late Gordon and Lula Sparks Adams in Letcher County Kentucky. She passed from this life surrounded by her family on Saturday, January 8, 2022 at Pikeville Medical Center. Nancy graduated from Whitesburg High School and attended Pikeville College through her junior year and began teaching third grade at Jenkins schools. Once she married, she taught in a one room school house for a number of years up Toler Creek. She left to raise her family but returned to substitute teach for many years after her kids were older. Nancy was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, Garland Keathley; one son, Frank Gordon; 4 brothers: James R. Adams, Bill Adams, Gordon Adams Jr., and Tommy Adams; 7 sisters: Geneva Polly, Genetta Hogg, Mona Ables, Sherry Branham, Marnell Ables, Mary Stanley, and Wilma Adams. She is survived by seven children, Cassandra (Ronnie) Akers, Raquel (Dwight) Newsome, Yolanda Hott, Tomeca Tackett, Heather Keathley, Dewayne (Stephanie) Keathley, and Brock (Becky) Keathley, one sister, Freeda Mason of Indianapolis as well as 20 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, her puppy Lady and her cat Midnight. Nancy loved nothing better than being a Nanny to her babies-she was happiest when her lap was full of those babies. She was a true angel on earth who showed us all the meaning of unconditional love. She will be missed by all who knew her. Visitation will be Tuesday and Wednesday at 6p.m. at the Lucas & Son Funeral Home. The funeral will be Thursday, January 13, 2022 at 1p.m. at the Lucas & Son Funeral Home with Willie Meade (Ford's Branch Church of Christ) officiating. Burial will follow in the Keathley Family Cemetery at Toler.
