Mrs. Doris Adelle Milby Keltner, 81, Green County, KY native (1934-2016)

Mrs. Keltner professed faith in Christ and attended God's Grace Church. The matriarch of a large, well-respected family, Mrs. Keltner was a full-time homemaker. It came natural for her to always keep her house neat and tidy, and to be ever ready to share some of her best cooking with her family and friends. She enjoyed keeping her mind sharp with puzzles and games, and especially enjoyed a friendly game of Rook. Her handmade quilts will be treasured for generations. She was the daughter of the late Harold & Rosie Elmore Milby and the widow of Davis L. Keltner. She leaves 68 direct living descendants to carry on her legacy.
