Madison Shyanne (Shy) Keaton, of Hardy, Va., was welcomed into Heaven on the evening of Tuesday, August 13, 2019, at the age of 24 as a result of a tragic car accident.

Shy leaves behind her loving parents, Brian Keaton Sr. and Susan Johnson Keaton; her siblings, Brian Keaton Jr. (Tiffany), Jonathan Keaton (Alice), Kaitlin Keaton, and Abigail Keaton; an adorable nephew, Preslee Keaton; maternal grandmother, Gina Smitherman; maternal grandfather, Jay Johnson; and paternal grandparents, James and Carolyn Keaton. She is also survived by a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins on both the Keaton and Johnson side who loved and supported her.

Shy was born on March 23, 1995, in Noblesville, Ind. She grew up in Indiana and Pennsylvania. Shy was an energetic, precocious child. She was intelligent, fun-loving, determined, and bold. As a young girl, she had no trouble holding her own with children twice her age or size. Shy was a people-lover. She possessed a magnetic personality. She was quick to share her engaging smile with whomever she met. She was a good listener, compassionate, and ready to lend a hand to someone in need.

Shy’s life was not without many struggles but in 2017, she gave her heart to Jesus and He radically transformed her life. She became a student of God’s Word and allowed it to change her from the inside out. Shy loved telling anyone who would listen about her relationship with God. Shy enjoyed working with her hands, scrapbooking, and writing in her spiritual journals. She loved worship music, attending church, facetiming her nephew, Presley, and hanging out with friends and family. She was currently employed as an In-home Direct Support Professional at ResCare Creative Family Solutions.

Family and friends are welcome to celebrate her life and mourn her passing at EastLake Community Church in Moneta, Va. Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, August 16, 2019, and her funeral service will be conducted at 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 17, 2019.

Shy’s family desires that others may receive help in addiction. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the House of Hope at 5525 West US Hwy 40 in Brazil, Ind. 47834. Online condolences may be expressed at www.johnmoakey.com.

Shy touched so many lives in Frankfort. Our hearts are deeply moved, but rejoicing in God's redemptive mercy. FBHC is making a donation to House of Hope in lieu of flowers, as requested by the family. May God's comforting presence be felt, and may more souls be found because of Shy's life.

So sorry for your loss. It’s hard on our hearts when we see someone who is full of life and have so much more to offer, fall asleep in death. It seems unfair and is easy to blame God. But the more we understand his word and the promises he holds out for those who have fallen asleep in death, even in the past, we realize he can undo the bad and make it good. In John 5:28-29, he gives us hope to see our families again. We see that when Jesus came to earth, he heal the sick, raised the dead, fed the hungry, gave hope for the future and died for us..what a tremendous amount of love for us. I’m really sorry for your loss but soon all this will be behind us. You are in our hearts and prayers

My family sends their love to the entire Keaton family at the loss of this precious young woman, Madison Keaton. Her short life has touched so many. She is a true testament for all of us of what is possible with the Lord. Nothing is Impossible! I thank Him for her life! We didn't know her personally yet she still has touched us all so deeply. Oh What a Day, glorious day it will be when we see Jesus and are reunited with our loved ones. Praying for comfort and peace for the family. Love from The Hullett Family.
