Lynn Keller

Posted on Jun 2, 2016

Grandpa Keller taught himself to play the violin when he was in his 80s. His great grand nieces Sharon and Sheila Brennan played violin with him on several occasions. He lived to be 100 years old and a remarkable man. He loved Emma and his family. He was a very quiet, hard-working, humble, brilliant man.

You had to watch him cause he would try to slip a card past us and grin knowing full well he played the wrong card. It was Eugene that would usually correct him, we weren’t bold enough to correct Grandpa.  🙂 Grandpa Keller 100 bday Lynn’s 100th birthday party Dec. 19, 1991.Grandap in tie

    I was using Google to find Grandma Christina Bowers’s obituary. It’s her birthday today, and I was looking for her obituary. This blog is what I found! I am fascinated and delighted by these pictures and memories! Thanks KelLee!
