Marion Keller

May 4, 1922 — April 8, 2013

Marion E Keller, 90, of Wilkes-Barre, passed away Monday morning, April 8, 2013 at Mercy Center in Dallas.

Marion, (“Sis” as she was known to her family), was born in Wilkes-Barre and was the daughter of the late Joseph and Elizabeth Fischer Keller. She was a member of St. Nicholas Roman Catholic Church in Wilkes-Barre.

She attended St. Nicholas Grade School and was a graduate of St. Mary’s High School. She worked for many years for the Teamsters Union and then as a seamstress with the ILGWU. In her later years, she enjoyed making floral arrangements for her home and for family and friends for special occasions. She loved spending time with her family and especially her dogs, Abby, Buddy and Iris. They always brought a smile to her face and gave her a lot of joy and love. Sis was a gentle woman and a wonderful and loving Aunt. She will remain with us forever in our hearts.
Marion was preceded in death by her sister, Dorothy Keller Geiser in 2007 and brother-in-law Leo Geiser in 2010.

She is survived by a brother, Joseph Keller, NJ; Nieces Bethann Geiser, Wilkes-Barre; Diane Bennett and husband Richard, Wilkes-Barre; several other nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
