An Obituary: Lucy S. Keohan

Lucy S. Keohan passed away on January 7, 2022. A longtime resident of Bedford and an RN who earned her degree at Massachusetts General Hospital, Mrs. Keohan leaves many friends and stories. In the 1970s in Wellfleet, she spoke at length to a ‘nice man’ and later told her children it was too bad that he was a ‘wash ashore,’ not born on Cape Cod. Turned the man was World War II hero Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, who had also been instrumental in getting her brother into Annapolis.
