ARLINGTON -- Funeral services for Donald J. and Joyce (Bentley) Keeler were held on Saturday afternoon Dec. 22 at The Federated Church of East Arlington.

The prelude and postlude consisted of a medley of old-time piano selections.

The eulogy was given by a nephew, Paul Cameron; poems were shared by a son-in-law, George Drew. Serving as bearers were grandsons Ryan Thompson, Chet Stothers and Randall Drew.

Burial followed in the Bentley family lot in Evergreen Cemetery with Rev. Clark offering the committal prayers.
