Keller, Virginia
1925 - 2017
Virginia C. Keller, 92, died peacefully on Christmas Day with her two daughters at her side. Virginia was the daughter of Frank and Mary Talbott Adrean of the Silverheels Farm in Stockport, Ohio. She leaves her husband, Robert "Bob" Keller after 65 years of marriage. Virginia "Ginny" moved to Columbus after high school graduation in 1943 and assisted the WWII effort in the construction of binoculars for the military. After the war she was secretary to legal counsel for the Farm Bureau (Landmark) in downtown Columbus before starting her family and remained friends with many from those years throughout her lifespan. She returned to secretarial work as her daughters grew older, retiring from her position in Worthington in the mid-1980s. Virginia enjoyed retirement by pursuing tap-dancing, golf, and having more time for gardening and decorating her home and substantial yard. She spent many days on the golf course with her fellow women golfers through age 88. She also leaves her daughter Deborah K. O'Donnell and son-in-law John O'Donnell of Glastonbury, Connecticut, daughter Sandra L. Stein and son-in-law John Stein of Naples, Florida, grandson James Adrean O'Donnell and grand-daughter-in-law Kristen O'Donnell of East Haven, Connecticut, and Richard J. Stein of Naples, Florida. Virginia's family thanks the skillful and compassionate care of the staff at The Laurels of Norworth in her last days, as well as nurses from Mt. Carmel Hospice. A memorial service will be held later in the winter. Memorial donations can be made to the . Visit www.schoedinger.com to send online condolences to the family.
