Mary Jo Rohe (Keith), age 64, of Vermontville, passed away peacefully on Tuesday February 2, 2021.
Born in Saranac Lake, New York on May 2, 1956, she was the Daughter of Patrick and Mary Ellen (Goff) Keith.
A lifetime resident of Vermontville, Mary Jo was a multi-talented florist, candy maker, crafter,
gardener and poet. She had been employed at the VIC, AMC, Trudeau Institute, HOTT house, and SLCS district and often could be found at craft shows and bazaars. If Mary Jo could have found a way to feed the world she would have. Every fall she would be seen with her husband Roger and the fifth quarter club feeding countless numbers of football players, families and supporters. In the spring they were a staple at every track meet, keeping bellies full and spirits high. She volunteered countless hours at the St. Paul’s food pantry and was always available to lend a hand when needed. She and Roger were inducted into the SLHS hall of fame for their contributions and support of SL athletics.
Of all Mary Jo’s passions foremost was her family. A dedicated daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She will forever be remembered for her glowing smile, strength, compassion and courage to face any obstacle in her path.
Survivors include two sons and their families. Scott, Tiffany and children Connor, Piper and
Makenna Shanty-Rohe of Gabriels, NY. Shawn, Jamie and son Blake Patrick Rohe of Saranac Lake. James and Rita Keith, Robert and Joannie Keith, Art Keith and Sheri Eaton, Sara and George Besaw, Kathleen and Bradley Merrill, Elizabeth Baldwin, Barbara Talley, brother in-law Dennis Muzzy, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews.
She was predeceased by her beloved husband Roger A. Rohe, Sister Susan Muzzy, Brother in-law Charles Baldwin, and Neice Alnee Baldwin-Bailey.
Funeral arrangements are in care of the Fortune-Keough funeral home, 20 Church Street, Saranac Lake, NY 12983. At Mary Jo’s request, there will be no calling hours. A graveside service will be held at a later date at Union Cemetery in Vermontville, NY at the convenience of the family.
Family and friends wishing to remember Mary Jo (Keith) Rohe may make memorial contributions to the Women’s College Scholarship Fund or the St. Paul’s Food Pantry in care of the Fortune-Keough Funeral Home. Family and friends can also leave condolences and sign the on-line guest book at
