Charles Layne Keith Obituary
WONEWOC, Wis. – Charles Layne Keith, 85, of Wonewoc, Wis., formerly of Coldspring, Texas, passed away at University Hospital in Madison on Friday, April 19, 2013. 
He was born on Aug. 8, 1927, in Fort Worth, Texas, the son of Julian T. and Zora M. (Layne) Keith. He was married to Katherine Culver on July 29, 2001, in Coldspring, Texas.
Charles had a unique and wonderful spirit, didn't complain, was helpful and had a great sense of humor. His inquisitive mind helped him figure out how to accomplish the many projects he always had going on and to put together his plans. He learned how to paint and did a few portraits, and he also wrote and finished a novel. He was dedicated to his family, especially his son who suffered some physical challenges later in his life. Charles had the ability to find resolutions to life's challenges. 
He was preceded in death by his parents; his former spouse, Jo Ann; and a stepson, Thomas Kevin Moeller.
He is survived by his wife, Katherine of Wonewoc, Wis.; his children, Victoria Fincher of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, John Rusch Keith of Kerrville, Texas, and Christianne (Brooks III) Booker of Hunt, Texas; grandchildren, Christopher Charles (Kristen) McCurry and Brooks (Tierney) Booker IV; great-granddaughters, Chloe McCurry and Alice May Booker; and a stepson, Dan Moeller of Marengo, Texas.
We will celebrate his life with a funeral service at 4 p.m. Tuesday, April  23, at Farber Funeral Home, Reedsburg, Wis., with Pastor Michael Lopp officiating. The visitation will be from 3 p.m. until the time of service at the funeral home. Burial will take place in Texas.
