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

I miss you so much. I wish i could talk to you Madison and tell you how sorry I am for what i put you through! However i am so happy after reading this page that you changed your life around and got to know Jesus Christ as your Savior. I know now that you are in Heaven and I am so happy for you and proud of the changes you made in your life before you were taken from this world. I will always love you and remember you. I have 88 pages of letters i plan to read to you when i get the chance to make the trip to see your final resting spot. I don't know if you would like it but i want to bring you flowers as well. I was the first man to ever buy you flowers and i don't know where my life will be heading in the future here on earth but I want to bring you the flowers when i get the chance and read you these letters. I am sure you know now yourself as you sit beside our Father that i also gave my life to Jesus Christ recently, August 17, 2019. That means as long as i stay focused on HIm and continue to follow him and try to bring other's to Christ i will be able to see you again when i leave this world too. I am not sure if things like that will even matter to me when i get to see Jesus face to face myself but in my human nature right now i know i can't wait to see you again. I miss you Madison, I have for over 4 years> I love you. And i am truly sorry for all i did to you and that I put you through.

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
