Clare Louise Keller of Warrick County departed this life for her heavenly home on January 31, having been born October 27, 1924 to Leo C. and Nettie (Antoinette Eble) Keller.
With a degree in Art from Marian College, she found her career’s home in St. Louis with the Dept. of Mapping and Charting for the United States government, most notably working on the team that sent Astronaut John Glenn into space. Simultaneously she established a premier antique shop in St. Louis making friends of her clients from all walks of life, including industrial leaders, city, and state officials.
Clare was strong in her devotion to God and love of country but it was her love of family that brought her back to Southern Indiana several years ago.
Clare was preceded in death by her parents and her four siblings whom she loved dearly: Clarence Charles (Charlie), Mary M. Fox, Ralph Leo, and James Leroy (Jimmy). She is survived by her nieces Ann, Susan, Clare, Lisa, and Mary, her nephew John, her cousin, Leonard Keller, many great nieces and nephews, and many dear friends and her bingo companion, Mary Jo Hinton.
