Mrs. Doris Adelle (Milby) Keltner was born in Green County on August 1, 1934 to the late Harold and Rosie (Elmore) Milby. She peacefully departed this life on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at the home of her son surrounded by a large number of her closest friends and family. She was 81 years, 6 months, and 16 days of age. Mrs. Keltner professed faith in Christ and attended God's Grace Church. The matriarch of a large, well-respected family, Mrs. Keltner was a full-time homemaker. It came natural for her to always keep her house neat and tidy, and to be ever ready to share some of her best cooking with her family and friends. She enjoyed keeping her mind sharp with puzzles and games, and especially enjoyed a friendly game of Rook. Her handmade quilts will be treasured for generations.
She leaves to carry her legacy:
Four children: Jerry Keltner and wife Shona of Hope, Indiana, Terry Keltner and wife Kathy of Campbellsville, Patty Stanfield and husband Ernie of Nicholasville, and Doris Osborne and husband Rick of Campbellsville,
Four siblings: Holland Milby and wife Patty, Mike Milby, Sue Southern and husband James, and Sharon Sharp and husband Randall, all of Campbellsville,
5 great-great grandchildren,
