Wonderful Crocheter

I'm a niece by marriage and, not long after joining the Keller family, Aunt Mary decided I needed to learn how to crochet.  Over time, she taught me the basic double crochet stitch and I have made numerous blankets for people since then.  Aunt Mary always had time to visit with you and was always interested in whatever was happening in your life.  I'm grateful for the time  I spent with her.  A sweet and caring lady.
