Helene M. Keefer


Helene M. Hull Keefer, 69, passed away Friday, February 26, 2021 at Meritus Medical Center in Hagerstown, Md.

Born June 4, 1951 in Germany, she was the daughter of the late Paul Hull and Rosa Frūhnert Hull.

Helene is survived by her husband David A. Keefer of Hancock, Maryland whom she married December 29, 1989; one son, Terry Farris of North West Ohio; three granddaughters, Abby, Sarah and Alex Farris also of North West Ohio; a stepmom Rosalie McNeer of Pipestem, W.Va.; a half sister, Kathy Socks of Clear Spring, Md. and a half brother, Rick Hull of Pennsylvania.

Helene worked for the Washington County Board of Education at Hancock Middle Sr. High School for 32 years. Helene touched the hearts of many staff and students alike.

Helene never met a stranger, her selfless nature made any conversation with her whether long or short meaningful. She always listened intently.

Helene was so giving, we could never count how many times she watched over and gave to our family. Our needs always came before her’s, she would just show up, Helene knew what we needed even if we didn’t.

Our loss here on this earth because she was so loved will make our Heavenly Reunion that much sweeter.

Helene’s last selfless act was donating her body to science.
