She was the loving daughter of JoAnne (nee Nicholl) O’Keefe, beloved brother of Brian O’Keefe, predeceased by her father, Michael, and her Grandparents Jack and Marie O’Keefe, and Joseph and Nancy Nicholl. She is survived by her many loving aunts and uncles, as well as her many cousins who she cherished tremendously. She also leaves behind so many friends she met through the years. Erin grew up in Northeast Philadelphia, in the Bustleton section.

Erin was active in a variety of sports activities as a child. She was especially fond of swimming and participated in summer and winter leagues throughout her childhood.

During her summer college and law school breaks, Erin was an active lifeguard with the Virginia Beach Lifesaving Service. Erin also spent one summer break interning at the Virginia Beach Courthouse. During her summers in Virginia Beach, Erin established many new friendships who she kept in  touch with throughout the years.

Erin was loving, kind, caring and compassionate.  She also was fond of her dogs, Gypsy and Darbie. During her time at Fox Subacute in Warrington, PA., Erin always enjoyed spending time with her many visitors, especially holidays and birthday celebrations. The staff at Fox always found her pleasant and enjoyed caring for her.
