friends. After retirement she enjoyed traveling, attending art clinics in
various parts of the Midwest and visiting Germany. Keren was a long time
member of Zion UCC Church in Newburgh and had been active in the
Evansville Lapidary Society. She had a gruff exterior but was very loving

several years until their deaths. She also gave a home to many stray or
orphaned cats and adopted one (Tommy) as a companion. She lived on
