Lois Pauline Keener, 87, of Sacramento, passed away Wednesday, July 21, 2010. She was born the daughter of Paul and Mabel Lathrop, in Pilot Grove Township, Montgomery County, Iowa on November 22, 1922. She attended Immanuel School of Nursing in Omaha, Nebraska and soon after graduating as a registered nurse joined the U.S. Army Nurse Corps. Pauline was a proud patriot and veteran who served in the Philippines during World War II. After the war, she married Robert L.

Pauline was a dedicated homemaker, who taught her children the arts of sewing and cooking and instilled in them a love of learning. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert and her daughter, Shawnee. Pauline is survived by her sisters, Mary Helen Peterson of Elliott, Iowa and Frances Carlson of Red Oak, Iowa; daughters, Linda McGregor of Clarksburg, California and Paula Riordan and her husband, Phil of Monterey, California; and dear friend, Helen Serry of Glendora, California. She has five grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
