Mrs. Keeslar gave so much of herself to others, especially to her church and girl scout troop. She had an incredible amount of energy and talent. My life was so enriched by her, Mr. Keeslar, Tati, and Diane. Rest in Peace, Mrs. K.

I will never forget all the years she went to church with me and told me she was proud of me for playing guitar. She was truly an amazing woman

Grandmother, The love you showed to Me and our family was endless. Your smile was contagious! Your love for life was beyond what most people can fathom. I can’t ever remember a day that you weren’t smiling. All the stories you shared with us about your life will live forever in my heart as will you. Thank you for being our “Grandmother”. Rest peacefully until we meet again. With deepest love, Becky, Mark and family xoxoox
