Family and Friends Remember Yale grad Marina Keegan in Funeral Service

Yale graduate Marina Keegan, who died in a car accident on route 6 in Dennis, Mass., was given a final farewell at her funeral in Wayland Saturday, June 2.

Keegan was a talented writer who once wrote a column “Another View: The Science and Strategy of College Recruiting” for The New York Times’ The DealBook. Keegan planned to work for The New Yorker following graduation.

Keegan’s family and friends joined to remember the talented writer, playwright and Wall Street crusader.

“Every once and a while Marina would stop and look around at the beauty around her and just feel at peace,” a loved one said at her funeral.

Keegan’s parents Kevin and Tracy Keegan spoke at the funeral and spoke of fond memories of their daughter.

“She could brighten my day,” her father Kevin Keegan said. “We now could all see, she could light up the world.”

“The only thing she treasured more than her beautiful collection of books were her beautiful collection of friends,” her mother said.

Michael Rosen, Keegan’s friend from college, fought back tears as he remembered his dear friend.

“From her ability to read people made her a great writer, it more importantly made her a really great friend,” he said. “She was a fiercely devoted friend, attentive, caring and generous.”
