LEWISTOWN - Harriet Louise Keough, 83, passed away May 21, 2022, in Lewistown, MT.
She was born in Hinsdale, MT, August 12, 1938, to Harry and Elsie (Keeney) Rennick. Harriet graduated from Glasgow High School. Her parents owned and operated the Coleman Hotel in Glasgow and she shared memories of the many beds she made while working and helping them.
Right out of high school, Harriet married the love of her life, Roy Lee Keough on September 17, 1955. They moved to Havre, MT, and had three children: Leroy, Gwenda, and Tommy. Harriet worked at the Havre Laundry, ran a home cleaning service with a good friend, worked at Pizza Pro and probably her favorite job and where most people knew her from was working at the Hi-Way Grocery Store.
Together, Harriet and Roy loved to travel, go camping and took many trips to Glacier Park. It was motorcycle rides in the summer and snowmobiling in the winter. Harriet loved to do crafts of all sorts, working in her yard, and just being outdoors. Her children simply stated, "Mom was a blessing!"
Harriet is survived by her children Leroy Keough and Gwenda (Thomas) Gehlen; grandchildren, Carissa (Kyle) Ackaret, Ryan (Cameron) Gehlen, and Brittany (Keith) Geary; great-grandchildren, Layton Geary, Hailey Geary, Kealey Ackaret, and Kaelyn Ackaret; and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Roy Lee Keough; son Tommy Keough; parents, Harry and Elsie Rennick; sister, Mabel Page, and brothers, Jerry Rennick, Bob Rennick, Ray Rennick, and Harry Rennick.
A private graveside service will be held in June at the Highland Cemetery in Havre, MT, where Harriet will rest next to her husband, Roy. Memorial donations can be made to a charity of the donor's choice.
