She met Ivan A. Keller, the love of her life, and they were married on June 8, 1953, in Beulah. Irma and Ivan operated a diversified farm north of Beulah until the time of their retirement. They moved to Kimball in the spring of 2016. Irma was a fantastic cook and baker. She was well known for her homemade caramel rolls, chocolate cake and bread. She loved gardening and canning. Irma also enjoyed embroidery work and made a quilt for each of her grandchildren. One of her passions was reading and she did so until her health prevented it. Her family will miss the caring wife, mother and grandmother that she was.

Sending lots of prayers and hugs to you all. Ivan and Irma were so enjoyable to visit with when they stopped to visit Deb at Cenex. They always had a funny story to share. Irma was a great lady.
