May 18, 1952 - May 9, 2022
Bridget Annette (Keirns) Schettini, 69, of Denton, peacefully passed away on May 9, 2022 after an 8 month battle with stage 4 metastatic lung cancer. She was born on May 18, 1952 in Athens, Ohio to the late Ruth (Norton) Lehman, and Robert Keirns. Mrs. Schettini was lovingly known by her family as Noni, especially to her beloved grandchildren, and as Bridgie, or Mamma Bridget by many loved ones. She graduated from Athens High School in 1970. She married the late Joseph Schettini in New Hampshire on July 23, 1977. Together they had four daughters, whom she called each her best friend; they gave her six grandchildren, each whom she considered her world. She cherished the bonds with her three son-in-laws, as well. Bridget’s strong work ethic and devotion to her family defined her life. She welcomed many into her life with a smile and open arms. Her faith led her to be a guiding light to many. She enjoyed quality time with her family most, but also a good margarita and a bowl of guacamole, time at the beach and outdoors, boating, gardening, and shopping. She loved daisies and bright colors. She loved providing for others, either through shopping for clothes for her grandchildren, or catering and serving others at weddings and events. She spent many years of her young life driving across the US, but always called the Eastern Shore home- because that is where her family began. She was a sports fan- by marriage- who rooted for the Patriots, Red Sox, Orioles, and Celtics. She was the loudest cheerer on the sidelines, alongside her husband, especially those of her children and eventually, her grandchildren. She also exhibited compassion for animals throughout her life, loved to have birds as pets, and always had at least one dog companion by her side. She was mainly a servant to others- through her dedication as a mother and grandmother- but also by profession. She drove buses for Talbot County Public Schools, with her late husband, and late father-in-law for many years. She mostly enjoyed her time on her kindergarten route. She was an incredible customer service professional. Her many years in the banking industry gave her the opportunity to make long lasting community connections with many who cherished every interaction with her. She considered her coworkers and customers her people, her friends. She and her late husband were known for having an open door for friends and young people to come to for advice. Her loving spirit allowed many friends and acquaintances with which she would share time, faith, and wisdom. Of all her accomplishments, though, none were as dear to her as her family. She claimed often to be blessed beyond words and to be proud of the bonds among her family. Bridget loved many things, but mostly her girls and their families, and especially her grandchildren. Bridget is survived by her daughters, Jill Schettini of Denton, MD, Jannel Schettini Luoma (John Luoma) of Pasadena, MD, Jevanina Schettini (Ted Clark) of California, MD, Jaclyne Schettini (Paul Stump) of Denton, MD, and grandchildren, Maxwell and Gianna Luoma, Jack, Hazel, and Elliot Schettini Clark, and Jacelyn Stump. Also, by many godchildren, brothers, sisters, cousins, and extended family throughout New England and the Midwest and close friends throughout the country. She is preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Schettini, Jr, both parents, Ruth Lehman and Robert Keirns, her foster-father, Frederick Kiko, her father and mother-in law, Joe & Jennie Schettini, brother, Robert Keirns, and many beloved siblings, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins. The family wishes to extend immense heartfelt gratitude and appreciation to the staff of MedStar Health at St. Mary’s Oncology and Radiation, MedStar HomeHealth, and Hospice at St. Mary’s MedStar Health for their medical care and tremendous support throughout this journey. All are welcomed to attend the Visitation on Wednesday, May 25th from 6-8 pm at Fleegle & Helfenbein Funeral Home at 106 West Sunset Avenue Greensboro, MD 21639 and funeral services on Thursday, May 26th at 12 pm at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church at 1214 South Washington Street, Easton, MD. In lieu of wearing black to the services, as Bridget would love to look down on us in an array of bright colors, and to reflect her love for love, light, and color, please wear a bright color of your choosing.
