Joan Nelda Kehoe, 84, of Greenbush, formerly of Dearborn Heights, died on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at her home. She was born November 24, 1932, to Joseph and Elsie (Olsen) Savitski in Mass, MI, where she graduated from Mass High School. She moved to Detroit in 1952 to begin working at the gas company. On July 10, 1954, she married Jeremiah L. Kehoe in Detroit, MI. She loved her flower garden, and liked to feed the birds. Joan was famous within her family for her desserts. She used to choose the dessert, and then decide what meal to make with it. For many years, she enjoyed playing golf and living at her summer home in Lakes of the North. Through the years, she especially liked to visit the casinos and play video poker, where she had been lucky enough to get multiple Royal Flushes. Mrs. Kehoe is survived and dearly loved by; her sister Jean Haynes of Twin Lakes, MI; two daughters, Theresa Kehoe (Carl Kutzli) of Greenbush, and Colleen Burrum of Memphis, MI; three sons, Timothy M. Kehoe of Saline, MI, Kevin J. Kehoe of Longwood FL, and CHristopher A.
