Clarks Summit and formerly of Dunmore, PA September 29, 1930 ~ October 20, 2018 Date of Service: October 25, 2018

Doris Juanita Keller, age 88, of Dunmore and The Pines of Clarks Summit, went home to be with her Lord and Savior, October 20, 2018.  Her beloved husband, LeRoy (Lee) W. Keller, preceded her to Heaven in 2010.  They were married for almost 60 years.

Born in Altoona, PA, she was the daughter of the late Floris Frey Bronner, the late Stuart W. Frey, and stepdaughter to the late Carl O. Bronner.  She was a lifelong member of the Dunmore Presbyterian Church, its church choir, participated in many Bible studies, was president of the Women’s Association, Circle Leader, was Historian of the Women’s Association, Sunday school teacher, Girl Scout leader, camp counselor, and also participated in the 10-mile CROP walk.  The church and her church family were very important to Mom.

A graduate of Dunmore High School, her hobbies included knitting hats and scarves for the homeless, hats for newborn babies, and knitted bandages for leprosy patients in other countries, which was a project initiated by the women of the church.  Mom enjoyed needlepoint and working word search puzzles and jig saw puzzles, too!  Doris and Lee loved to dance and did as long as they were physically able.  

Doris is survived by her daughter, Terry Lee Dell’Amico and husband Jack; son, Wesley M. Keller and wife, Barbara; and granddaughter, Jessica Lee Dell’Amico.  She is also survived by numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, each whom she loved dearly.  She was also a great-aunt and a great-great aunt. 

She was also preceded in death by her sisters, Eleanor Virginia Frey Saikowski, and baby sister, Cherry; and two step-sisters, Kathryn Bronner Shenko and Marie Elizabeth Stieler.

Our Mom was not only a wonderful and loving wife, but the best Mom and grandma and friend anyone could have ever asked for.  Doris was a Christian woman who wanted nothing more than for everyone to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. Mom was a prayer warrior, praying for others all the day long.

A very special thank you to all the wonderful folks at The Pines – they were not only wonderful caregivers, but Mom thought of each of them as her family, too!  A special thank you to Dr. Sal Lawrence, Dr. Mercuri, and Dr. Czulada for taking such wonderful care of our Mom through the years!

The funeral will be Thursday at 11 a.m. in the Presbyterian Church of Dunmore, 137 Chestnut St., Dunmore.  Interment will be privately held.

Friends may call on Thursday morning at the church from 9:30 a.m. until the time of service.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Presbyterian Church of Dunmore, the Lackawanna Blind Association, or to an animal rescue of the donor’s choice.

Dear Terry and family, I am so sorry for the earthly loss of your beautiful mother. I love what you said in one of your posts that "your loss is Heaven's gain", but I'm sure your sadness in missing her is great. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all, now and in all the remaining years of our friendship. Love, Janice
