Hampstead, NH - Renee "Mim" (Collette) Keating, 70, of Hampstead, NH, passed away Tuesday October 1, 2019, in the Rockingham County Nursing Home, Brentwood, NH, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born in Troy, N.Y. on May 20, 1949, a daughter of Edward and Marion (Seney) Collette. Renee graduated from Catholic Central High School in Troy, NY in 1967 and later from Albany Nursing School in 1971. She was a nurse but spent most of her years working as a nurse with "Our Lady of Hope" in Latham, NY. She spent many countless hours volunteering in her children and grandchildren's schools or activities and donating her time and a variety of baked goods. Mim adored her family. It was always her first priority. She enjoyed antiquing with friends, traveling, crocheting (she was known for her baby blankets) crafting for others and baking. She leaves behind a legacy of love and compassion for all. She meant so much to so many. "When you make it to heaven, look out for the woman polishing the Pearly Gates. She'll have pledge in her hand and probably a cute Maltese with a color coordinating bow in her hair. That's Mim."
In addition to her parents formerly of Latham, NY, Renee is also survived by her beloved husband of 50 years, William Keating of Hampstead; her daughter, Deanna Seccareccio and husband Robert of Derry; two sons, Todd Keating and wife Rachel of Highland Park, IL, and Drew Keating and husband William of Hampstead; four grandchildren: Tyler, Jake, Lillianna & Elissa; as well as several nieces.
Calling hours will be held on Sunday, October 6, 2019 from 3 to 7 p.m. in the Peabody Funeral Homes and Crematorium, 15 Birch Street, Derry. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, October 7, 2019 at 1 p.m. in St. Anne's Parish, 26 Emerson Road, Hampstead, NH. The burial will follow in Lakeview Cemetery, Kent Farm Rd., Hampstead, NH. Memorial contributions may be made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Donation Processing, P.O. Box 5014, Hagerstown, MD 21741-5014 or Easterseals Adult Day Program, 555 Auburn Street, Manchester, NH 03103 . To send a condolence or for more information, please visit,
