Obituary for Sarah (Clark) Keating

September 27, 1943 - October 7, 2020
Rocky River, Ohio | Age 77

Loving Mother and Grandmother


Sarah (Clark) Keating, age 77, passed away peacefully on October 7, 2020. Born to Jack and Muffie Clark, Sarah grew up in Rocky River and Westlake, and was a long-time resident of Bay Village. She was a proud graduate of THE Ohio State University. She married Jack Keating in 1975, and continued to raise her children Kara and Brendan with great courage and love after she was widowed at a young age. A high school teacher in the Cleveland Public Schools, Sarah often mentored students, helping many beyond the confines of the classroom. Years after her retirement, she still received calls from former students whose lives she impacted. She was a voracious reader, a dedicated Cleveland sports fan and a great follower of politics. In her encore years, she found new opportunities to change the world as a volunteer and an advocate, but most of all, as a supportive mother and a doting grandmother.

She is survived by her daughter Kara Copeland (Scott) and her grandchildren Jack, Gabby and Hadley. She is also survived by her sister Holly Carroll, Brother Kit Clark, and brother-in-law Jim Keating, as well as her nieces, nephew and many cousins and friends.

She is preceded in death by her husband Jack, her son Brendan and brother-in-law Tom.

Out of concern for the health and safety for those she loved, Sarah asked that her life be celebrated at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The EDWINS Foundation, 13101 Shaker Square, Cleveland, Ohio 44120 or to a charity of your choice. To honor her memory, Sarah's family asks that you do something (little or big) to help make the world a better place. 440-333-9774
