June 8, 1919 to June 7, 2011
Grace was born in New Jersey, attended Katherine Gibbs Secretarial School, and worked in New York City. In 1943, she married the love of her life, John Emil Keller. After living in Hackensack, N.J., Rochester, N.Y., and Toledo, Ohio, they retired to the Applegate Valley, in Oregon, in 1979. As always, they were very active in the local community, church choir, Rogue Valley Audubon Society, and the symphony. Grace and John moved to Lake Oswego, Ore., in 1994, to be near family.
Grace is survived by her husband, John; her daughter, Kathy Keller Jones, and her husband Barry Jones; grandchildren, Kaye Jones and Adam Hyde, and Karl Jones and Steph Dotson; as well as great-grandson, Rye Jones Hyde, who brought her much joy.
The family held a celebration of life on June 9, 2011.
