Sasha Jennifer Keys
Sasha Jennifer Keys, 50, a resident of Cape Coral, FL for the past 27 years, formerly of Big Pine Key, FL, passed away Saturday, February 1, 2020 in Cape Coral, FL. She was born November 10, 1969 in Manhattan, NY.
Sasha was of the Russian Orthodox faith. She attended Key West High School and went on to attend college. In April of 1990 she married William Keys in Key West, FL. The following year they welcomed their first and only child Brittany into the world. Sasha was a loving, caring mother. She always put her daughter first and there’s nothing in this world she wouldn’t have done for her. They were very close and spent a lot of time together. In 2016 Sasha helped welcome her granddaughter, McKinley (who Sasha helped name) into the world, who she absolutely adored; she was overjoyed to become a grandma. In April of 2020, Sasha was supposed to help give her daughter away in marriage, which she was very excited and happy for. Sasha was a warm, kind and loving soul. She almost always had a smile on her face and she loved everyone. She never judged anyone and always saw the best in people. She loved being out on the water, traveling, spending time with family and friends, blaring rock and roll music and enjoying life. She lived every day to the fullest and she was always there for the people who were important in her life when they needed her the most. Sasha will always be remembered and loved, although her passing was sudden, she would never have wanted anyone to be upset or worried. She would be extremely happy to see all her favorite people coming together to celebrate her life and the wonderful woman she was. She would say, “Don’t cry or be sad, but turn the music up and think of me.” She would want her life to be remembered for all the good times she brought into all of our lives and for us all to know that she will always be with us no matter where we go or what we do.
She is survived by her loving daughter, Brittany Keys (Michael Quintero) of Cape Coral; granddaughter, McKinley Keys; loving mother, Ann Vlaun of Cape Coral; long time companion, Glenn Schomer of North Fort Myers; siblings, Nadira Vlaun (Kristian Iglesias) of Greenport, NY, and Donde Basztura of Maui, HI; a niece, Osa Iglesias and nephew, Brae Iglesias; as well as her separated husband, Thomas Chambers of Ocala, FL.
