Eva Jean Keller

Eva Jean Keller, age 87, Kokomo, passed away at 6:26 a.m. on Monday, January 4, 2021, at Community Howard Regional Health in Kokomo.

Born in Carroll County on Monday, June 12, 1933, she was the daughter of Ralph and Eva (DeWald) Galbreath.

She was a member of VFW Post 3790 Ladies Auxiliary.

Eva had the kindest neighbors who looked out for her and Walter’s happiness and safety daily, and they were considered one of their own. The family could never thank them enough for helping keep them safe all these years.  

Surviving are children, David (Tanya) Keller, Carmel, Edward (Deb) Keller, Pennsylvania, Vickie (Jack) Hahn, Fort Wayne, Kathy (Todd) Cripe, New Waverly and Leisa (Jeff) Keller-Henry, Kokomo.  Also surviving are 15 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
