She then took another administrative position at the JFK Federal building in Boston, where she retired from. Along the way, Sis lived in Charleston, Weymouth and then later in Revere. She was a woman that was full of energy, fun and love. She lived with her niece Terri & husband Joe and their two boys, TJ & Patrick for about 15 years in Weymouth. Sis was their surrogate grandmother, and she did everything a grandmother would do for her grandsons, and more. After the boys were of age, Sis settled in Revere, closer to her own son and she lived a happy & fun filled life. She was an active member at the Rossetti Senior Center & and was also a member of the Swampscott Cribbage Club. She was still playing cribbage just a week before her passing. Family was always very important to Sis and she enjoyed always being surrounded by her family.

She is the loving & devoted mother of Richard F. Keegan of Revere. Treasured sister of the late John J. Sullivan, Jr., Katherine T. O’Connor, Joseph, Thomas, Patrick, Edward Sullivan & Julie Persico. She is the cherished aunt of many nieces, nephews, grandnieces & grandnephews.
