Remembering the Eagle Lady... Jean Keene, Homer Alaska

I was out on the Homer Spit a couple of days ago… there were Eagles perched all over… on top of lights, buildings rocks… just lots of Eagles…

I was thinking about Jean Keene aka the Eagle Lady

then it hit me it was January 13th. The day she died.

 Jean Keene was one of a kind. Her bright red hair and her passion for the Eagles were real trademarks of her very being. She fed them. she named them, she loved them and they loved her. Jean didn’t want for much. She lived in her trailer at the End of the Spit year round. Surrounded by her Beautiful garden and her Eagles, she was Happy with her Life.

I think the Eagles were out that day… singing to the skies… singing to the Eagle Lady.

We still miss her!  Jean Keene “The Eagle Lady” passed away January 13 2009 She was 85.

Here are a couple of posts I wrote before about Jean. She was a trick rider in the Red River Rodeo at a younger age and worked with Gene Audry...She had red hair and a quirky personality and was well known as one of Homer Alaska's Most Famous Characters

 Good morning Debra Leisek .  I remember being out on the Homer Spit several years back and I was amazed at the number of eagles perched everywhere.

Are you covered in snow now Debra? I was wondering the other day if much real estate is sold during the winter months.

Posted by Debbie Reynolds, Your Dedicated Clarksville TN Real Estate Agent (Platinum Properties) almost 3 years ago

We usually have more snow than we do right now... this is an el nino year we get the beautiful snow then the rain washes it away. Right now we do have snow and it is really beautiful!

You're doing a great job spreading the word about this great lady. I would like to think she is soaring with the Eagles now looking down on earth in a very different way.

Debra Leisek - What a wonderful tribute!  We have a nest of Bald Eagles in the Clarkdale area of the Verde Valley close to the Verde River.  You can only within a quarter mile of the nest during mating season. They actually have an observer trailer to keep people out of the area. But to watch these magnificent creatures soar above you is simply breathtaking!
