Surviving is a son, Chuck Keller and wife Roxie of Callison; a daughter, Sarah Monson and husband John of Simpsonville; three cousins, Bonnie Banister of Bradley, Mary Vassy of Greenwood and Patsy Partridge of Clinton.

Funeral services will be conducted at 3:00 PM Friday at Bold Spring Baptist Church with Rev. Chris Garrison and Rev. Chuck Keller officiating.
