Drilda Jane O’Brien, known as Del to her friends, died April 11, 2020 surrounded by loved ones. Her body could no longer fight the progression of lung cancer/asbestosis. We know she is breathing freely in her reunion with her father, Frank L. O’Brien, mother, Lillian A. O’Brien, sister, Frankie and her brother, Lloyd.
Drilda was born in Eureka, MT to Frank and Lillian O’Brien. She spent most of her growing up years in Eureka and Libby, MT. Del moved to Missoula, MT where she married Marvin McKeever and they had two children together, Bobbi Jo and Marvin Lee. Del and Marvin divorced, new loves were found and lost and Del eventually moved back to Libby, MT for her retirement years. Volunteering at the VFW was a highlight for her; she loved the people and helping others. For those that knew Del, there was nothing she loved more than a day in the sun. She also loved music, animals, her family and children, Nutella, bad TV, garage selling and collecting everything you could imagine!
Drilda Jane O’Brien is survived by her daughter, Bobbi Jo McKeever Janssen, her husband Paul and their children Ella and Cashel (Portland, OR); her son Marvin Lee McKeever, his wife Casey and their children Lorenzo and Marcianna (Libby, MT); siblings- Perry O’Brien (Couer d’Alene), Patrick O’Brien (Libby, MT) and Roxanna O’Brien (Libby, MT.) and many uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
There are no services planned at this time but we hope to have a celebration of life in the summer. In lieu of flowers, consider a donation to VFW Post 1548 Ladies Auxiliary of Libby, MT. Arrangements are by Schnackenberg Funeral Home in Libby. Online condolences and memories may be shared at www.schnackenbergfh.com.
