Carolyn Shawn (Mooney) Keel, 54, passed away Monday, September 10, 2018 at her home. Funeral Service will be 2:00 PM Friday, September 14, 2018 at Cole Funeral Home with the Reverend Jim Fitzhugh officiating. Interment will follow in Crawford Cemetery in Crawford, Texas. Family will receive friends from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Thursday, September 13, 2018 at Cole Funeral Home in McGregor. Shawn was born on May 7, 1964 to Edward and Jene (Walters) Mooney in Waco. She attended school in McGregor where she was one of the youngest McGregor Bulldog mascots at the age of three, was crowned Miss Tot of McGregor in 1967, graduated from 4-C College in Waco, and married Donald Ray Keel on May 11, 1987 in Waco. Shawn was known for her huge heart and could always see the good in anyone. Although she struggled with health problems, the past few years, she never complained or looked for sympathy from anyone. Her main concern, throughout her illness, was her family and friends. Anyone that had the opportunity to know and love Shawn was truly blessed.

Without a doubt, you had such a nice, sweet, loving, caring heart for everyone you knew.  But you know what I admired about you most? I admired how strong of a person you were. Every since I've known you, you've had some battle to fight,  whether it was a car wreck, lung cancer, heart surgery, diabetes, infection after infection, and thru all of it you still had a smile on your face, love in your heart and you never let life make you bitter.  You fought one hell of a fight Shawn Keel. And though you will be truly missed, it warms my heart to know you can now rest and that you're at peace! Love you always!

I remember being at your house and the girls had gotten your dish soap and poured it out all over the hardwood floors and we're sliding in it from one side of the room to the other. You were so mad and all I could do was laugh so hard. Gonna miss you but I'll see you again one day. Love you Shawn!

I have'nt seen Shawn in years, but I know if I would have she would still be the kindest, nicest person she always was. She was never anything but nice to me. This is not goodbye, this is see you later.
