Dorothy Mae Keck

Dorothy Mae Keck, a lifelong resident of Mansfield, Ohio, passed into eternity on Wednesday, January 13, 2021 with her family by her side. She was affectionately known as "Dottie Quick Check". She was born to Samuel Jennings and Edna Moon Treadway on July 31, 1922 or 1923 in Blooming Grove, Ohio. Her parents said 1922, but her birth certificate said 1923, so it's a mystery.

Dorothy enjoyed working with her hands, working outside in her flowers and spending time with her loved ones. She worked for many years as the manager of Quick Check, as well as other places. She also enjoyed attending horse shows where her sons participated in sporting events. Dorothy was a long time member of First United Methodist Church, and most recently attended Mansfield Free Will Baptist Church.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Harold Glenn Keck, with whom she shared nearly 40 years meeting him at the Coliseum while skating; son, Glenn Allen Keck; brothers, Charles Edward and Ralph Treadway; three sisters, Alice Karsmizki, Rosetta Treadway and Helen Keesey; great-grandson, Christian Keck; and great-grandchild Addington.

Dorothy is survived by her son, Ronald (Connie) Keck; special daughter, Debra (Mark) Stewart; daughter-in-law, Karen Keck; grandchildren, Jesse (Sasha) Keck, Mark (Jody) Keck, Andrew (Bryn) Keck, Phillip (Kellie) Keck, Rebecca (Jason) Wolfe and David Keck; special granddaughters, Ashley Damoff, Amanda Addington, Adrianna Addington, and Allyson Temple; great-grandchildren, Alexander Gornall, Haydn and Zoë Keck, Elizabeth, Olivia, Alissa, Lily and Malaina Wolfe, Braden, Bodie, Landon, Abigail, Elli and Brogan Keck; and great-great granddaughter, Avalynn Keck.

The family will receive friends from 5:00-8:00 p.m. Monday, January 18, 2021, at the Ontario Home of Wappner Funeral Directors, 100 S. Lexington-Springmill Road. The funeral service conducted by Pastor Mark Bailey will be held Tuesday at 10:00 a.m. at the funeral home. She will be laid to rest in Mansfield Memorial Park. Adhering to the governor's mandate, all guests are required to wear a face covering and observe appropriate social distancing during their time in the funeral home.

A special thank you to the wonderful caregivers at Arbors at Mifflin who cared for Dorothy the past 5 1/2 years.
