Obituary for Elizabeth Ann Keel (Macaluso)

She is survived by her husband, soulmate and best friend of 33 years, Dale Keel, brother Steve Macaluso, sister Trisha, niece Isabella, nephew Brock, sister Deanna Macaluso, nephew John, uncle August “Augie” Macaluso, uncle John Shimkus, aunt Tina Shimkus and the extended beloved Macaluso family. Mother-in-law Mary Frances Read, sister Jackie Ludwig-Burford, brother Gordon Burford, niece Leah Ludwig, niece Lindsey Ludwig-Rahm, nephew Josh Rahm, sister Dannette Keel, sister Courtney Wafford and brother Darryl Keel.

Liz was proceeded in death by her parents Russell and Johanna Macaluso.

Liz was a graduate of the University of Arizona and competed as a Division 1 track and field athlete. This was also where she met her adoring husband which has been the greatest joy of her life. Liz and Dale moved to Chicago and later settled in Greenville, South Carolina.

Throughout her life Liz traveled the world always in search of the next adventure. She was a mom to three dachshund’s Arthur, Ozzie and Harriett, and made the best Caesar salad dressing out there. Her laugh was infectious, she had the biggest heart and her light was so bright everyone wanted to be around her. Liz had the most meaningful friendships filled with constant laughter that enriched every part of her life.

Professionally Liz inspired and was inspired by so many of her Ariat colleagues and clients who she considered family. It has been a community of unwavering support and encouragement and she truly felt like she never worked a day in her life because she loved what she did. Liz had a way of telling you what and how to do things but if you were smart you never questioned her.

Most of all Liz loved her husband, family and friends. She will be dearly missed, forever in our hearts and will always be with us.

There will be a celebration of life held later this year in Greenville and Chicago.

In her memory and honor donations can be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital in the name of Liz Keel.

Brandon and I were heart broken to hear that Liz had passed. Her and Dale w Ariat helped us to open a Western Retail store in West Jefferson NC. She always made time for anyone no matter what she was doing. But she was so much more than a rep. She came to see us w a smile and helped us as long as it took, day and night. Had wonderful times with her and Dale in WJ and trade shows. We will miss her dearly. God has truly gotten a beautiful angel💜❤️
