Aline Keenan, 89, of Weirton, a warm, outgoing and loving wife, mother, and granny, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, August 29, 2020.

Aline grew up in Steubenville, OH, and graduated from Steubenville High School. After high school, she worked in the offices of the Weirton Salvation Army. This is where she met her husband, Jesse.
