It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Farrah Dawn Keshane "Fariy" on June 6, 2018 at the age of 37 years.
Farrah was born in Canora SK. on Oct 3, 1981, the only child of Denise and Patrick, she was daddy’s girl. She was bold, beautiful, and vivacious! She loved people and was always willing to help. Farrah always had people around her. She loved to laugh, and had a very good heart. She wanted others to live their lives to the fullest. She wanted the best for them. She always had an encouraging word and lit up the room when she came in.
Farrah’s first job was at a Pawn Shop. Mom would ask, “How much are you getting paid?” Farrah replied, “I get to pick out jewelry, anything I want!” Then she’d re-pawn it. To tease the kids when they wouldn’t listen, she’d tell them…”Come on, I’m taking you to the pawn shop!”
She was on her own at the age of 17 and ready to go on a whole new adventure. As a single mother of two she moved to Toronto, where she got accepted into Theatre school. Farrah worked hard on her dreams and aspirations. Farrah would always say she was a “latch key kid,” which made her a very responsible single parent.
Farrah was employed in various jobs in Saskatchewan and Ontario. Her most recent job was as a Mental Health and Addiction worker for Child and Family Service of Ontario.
Farrah was predeceased by her beloved father Patrick Keshane (Pappa), paternal grandparents Frank and Sarah Keshane, maternal grandfather Leslie Clayton Crowe of Paipot First Nation, and grandparents Cyril and Marianne Sinclair.
Farrah leaves to mourn her partner Lance Barker, sons Drez Keshane (Erica Phillips) and Draven Keshane, daughter Jayla Fairylyn Barker Keshane, Mom Denise Kayseas, beloved little brother Kyle Musqua, favorite niece Leatta “Brown” Brass and favorite nephew Isaac Musqua, grandmothers Cora (George) Tourangeau and Madeline (Richard) Whitehawk, her best friend Sarah, many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
