With great sadness, the Keller family announces the passing of LeAnn Ruth Cone Keller, 85, on Friday October 5, 2018. She was a loving wife to Don for 64 years, caring mother to Marcee, David, and Ann Marie, beloved grandmother to nine, great-grandmother to two and a dear friend to many.
LeAnn was born on the family homestead farm in Independence, Iowa on August 1, 1933 to Leo and Ruth (Bachman) Cone. She graduated from Independence High School in 1951 and completed cosmetology school in Cedar Rapids in 1952. She married her high school sweetheart Don Keller on June 12, 1954 at First Presbyterian Church in Independence.
In addition to working as a beauty operator, LeAnn was a product demonstrator for the Oster Company where she spent many days at local department stores or visiting Home Economics classes in the Dubuque Community School System to demonstrate how to use the appliances. She also worked as a teacher’s aide at Senior High School prior to retiring.
LeAnn was an active member at Westminster Presbyterian Church where she served on the Board of Deacons, volunteered for Vacation Bible School, was a tutor for the after school program, organized funeral luncheons and sang in the choir. She was also a long-standing TTT member and a very active 4-H leader for several years with the Happy Go Lucky and Riverside 4-H Clubs. She was a Master Gardener and a volunteered at the Iowa State Extension Office in Dubuque answering questions.
For many years Don and LeAnn would spend weekends square dancing around the area. They were members of both the Tri-State Twirlers and Gold Rush Squares and traveled to several Iowa State Square Dance Conventions and two national conventions. They also spent summers camping with the Tri-State Travelers Camping Club around the tri-state area, and winters traveling to Texas and Arizona, spending time camping and visiting with friends and family in the area.
Visitation will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 from 4-7pm. Funeral Services will be held at Westminster on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, at 10am.
