Margaret Elaine, nee Ayres, Keck, 70, of Highland, IL, born September 12, 1949, in Otter Creek Township, Illinois fell asleep in death Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Highland, IL. Margaret married her sweetheart and the love of her life, James D. Keck, on June 29, 1968 and was married 51 years. They had four beautiful children and five amazing grandchildren, all of whom she treasured. She embraced with full passion and optimism every moment she spent with her family. She was a dedicated servant of Jehovah God and a member of the Highland Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses. She demonstrated to everyone her strong conviction in doing what is right through her selfless love of others.

Margaret’s passion in life was loving, serving and helping those around her. She had a brilliant mind for business and used her skills and talents to unselfishly help others. In addition to running a photography and videography business with her husband as her partner, she worked as an accounting professional, tax preparer, and financial planner for many of her hard-working friends and multiple businesses, who found her advice to be insightful and her guidance to be indispensable. Her savvy and hard work carried over into her personal relationships as she guided and taught everyone around her the best way through any challenge. She would talk to everyone she met until she was able to discern their needs and offer everything she could to meet those needs. She was a “rock” to many around her, all of whom she loved and touched deeply.

She was preceded in death by her son, Keith Everett Keck and her father, Everett Zadock Ayres. Surviving are daughters, Jeanette (Bryan) Wildermuth of Highland, IL, Jennifer (Jason) Patterson of Wallkill, NY, and Kristi (Andy) Cooksey of Highland, IL; Grandchildren, Elaina, Alyssa, Kaiden, Claira & Korben Cooksey; Mother, Levetta (nee Weller) Ayres of Collinsville, IL.; siblings, Everett (Joyce) Ayres, Delbert (Becky) Ayres, and Brenda (Paul) Niemaczek; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, and dear friends.

God has taken an angel to be with him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I loved Margaret and she was an inspiration to us all. She was a client who became a close friend. She helped me thru alot of things. We laughed, we cried, we hugged and we shared many stories. I will miss you Margaret.

I met Margaret on RBC projects and found her a delight. She was spunky and I loved that quality about her. Maybe because I relate well to "spunky" myself😁 She was a hard worker in whatever she did ... for Jehovah, her family and her friends. She truly will be missed.... for just a short time though , because very soon we will see her again.

Margarette was always very special to me. She delivered me at my parent’s home on May 6th 1978. She always loved telling me the story of that day and how she saved me when I was born not breathing. That is something that will stay with me forever. She was kind and loving . My heart and condolences go out to the family during this difficult time.

I met Margaret Ayres when she was a teenager in High School, when I knocked on her Parents door in E. St. Louis Il. I studied the Bible with her and her Brother Everett. I am heart stricken from hearing about this tragedy. I send my condolences to her husband Jim Keck and all surviving relatives who grieves their loss.

When I hear her name I think strong, kind, loving, hard worker, devoted, an anchor, dependable and selfless. All beautiful qualities that she has passed on to her children and grandchildren. My heart aches for this great loss.
