Erin L. McKeone       

Coudersport, Pa.---Erin L. McKeone, 50, a lifelong resident of Coudersport, passed away in her home surrounded by her loving family and friends, on Thursday, August 30, 2018.

Born on August 29, 1968 in Olean, N.Y., she was a daughter of Dr. Robert E. and Marilyn J. Jackson Wagner. On February 22, 1992, she married Sean P. McKeone, her high school sweetheart, who survives.

Erin was a graduate of Coudersport High School, Class of 1986. For two years, she attended Nyack College in Nyack, N.Y., attaining a 4.0 grade point average. She spent the summer of 1988 on a mission trip to China.

Erin was a devoted and loving wife, mother, teacher, daughter, and friend who always put her family first. Each of her children was homeschooled by Erin. She was an active member of God’s Country Ministry (Coudersport Free Methodist Church), in Sweden Valley. She served on the lead team, Bible Study group, and was a member of the Soul Care group, where, despite her illness, was still active. Erin recently organized, with the help of her family and friends, a dinner and service for Rev. Vilmer Paul, visiting from Haiti, to aid in building Christian schools for the children there. She had a special burden and vision for the people of that country.

Her faith never wavered. Through her illness, she chose to put her faith in God. Erin was very active in several homeschool co-ops, and was a substitute teacher for special needs IU9 students.

For over a year, Erin regularly shared a blog about her life on her own website, “To Fathom the Depths” where she shared her spiritual journey.

We were so blessed to have Erin as a niece. Watching her grow up and become the woman GOD designed her to be. Her loving eyes, smile, personality and her love for Jesus and her family was awesome. We loved her and we pray for all of you.

I first knew Erin as a little girl in elementary school where she and my daughter, Traci, became fast friends. Over the years I watched her grow into a beautiful young woman who loved her family and her God above all else. Despite her talents and accomplishments (and they were many), she always maintained a loving and caring spirit toward others. She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.

Thank you Erin for being an example of a life well lived.
