She is survived by her son, Richard Keck (partner Patty), daughter Gini and husband Janis Ezernieks, grandsons Kyle, Jonathan, Will, Jenson & Jesse, brother-in-law Donald Keck, and numerous extended family members and longtime friends. As an adoptee, her loving family grew in the last years as she connected with her birth families. She is preceded in death by her parents Tony and Lucille Galle, and husband Richard F. Keck.

So sorry to hear that. Got to know her in 9th grade & became close friends, along with staying in contact through the the years on class website & social media.
After her husband passed, I asked her if she would attend a class reunion & she said maybe just one. When she did, she was so happy & came back several times. She was such a caring & loving person. Definitely will be missed by all. She is now with her husband & parents. PEACE

Dear Rich, Gini and Family,

I met Patti in 9th. grade at CFA.  We were best friends from then on.  We were each others Maid of Honor.  

Patti was a caring person her whole life.  She would help anyone in need.  She loved all animals.

We shared many fond memories over the past 63 years.  Patti was a devoted friend.  

On Sundays after mass, our parents would take us to the Baron Steuben Hotel for breakfast.

I will truly miss her cherished friendship.

My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
