Brenda Mae Keene, 65 years, a resident of South Berwick, died peacefully on Friday, September 27, 2019 at York Hospital following a battle with cancer.

Brenda was born in York, ME on January 14, 1954, the daughter of Bernard W. Keene, Sr. and Bertha Mae (Stevens) Keene.

She graduated from Wells High School and immediately started her long career in banking at Canal Bank. Brenda then worked at Key Bank, was Vice President Branch Administrator of Kennebunk Savings for many years, and most recently at Partner’s Bank, formerly Sanford Institute for Savings, until her illness made it difficult to work.

Brenda was full of life and loved people. She could often be found volunteering for many community non-profits. She loved her job and it showed. In her spare time, she enjoyed gardening and tending the flower beds around her home, was a lover of all animals, and enjoyed riding motorcycles and spending time with her husband.

She was predeceased by her mother, Bertha Mae (Stevens) Keene.

She is survived by her loving companion and husband of 45 years, Richard C. Bartlett of South Berwick; her father, Bernard William Keene, Sr. of Ogunquit; her brother, Bernard W. Keene, Jr. and his wife Jacqueline of Bangor, ME, several cousins, and a wide circle of treasured friends and colleagues throughout Southern Maine.

A private funeral service will be held at the convenience of the family.

Should friends desire, memorial donations may be made in Brenda’s memory to the American Cancer Society, One Bowdoin Mill Island, Ste, 300, Topsham, ME 04086.

My husband is a resident at Watson Fields along with Brenda’s Dad, Bernard. I heard that Brenda passed and still can’t believe it.
What a lovely person & she had such a caring heart. I loved talking to her when our visits to Watson coincided. She will be greatly missed .
My deepest sympathy to her husband , extended family & friends.

I am so sorry to hear about Brenda's passing. I worked with her at Canal Bank in Ogunquit. I enjoyed working with her and was always impressed with her career in banking. I would see her occasionally at the bank. My sincere condolence on your loss.
