Irene Keller

Irene K. Keller age 94, of Dunedin, Florida went to heaven on Friday, April 15, 2022. She was born in Greenfield, Massachusetts, graduated from the Peter Bent Brigham School of Nursing and worked as a Registered Nurse in Boston, Minneapolis, and Clearwater. She moved to the area 65 years ago from Minneapolis, Minnesota with her husband, raised three children, and worked many years for Hunter Blood Center and Florida Blood Services. She was a member of First Lutheran (Clearwater) and finally, Faith Lutheran Church in Dunedin. Her interests included world travel, raising Siamese cats, the African Violet Society, and championing the worldwide conservation of big cats and panda bears.

As we approach our first Mother’s Day without her, we are left with memories of a strong woman who loved her husband and family empowered by her love and faith in God. We remember a woman blessed with integrity, an adventurer of travel, dedicated stamp collector, and a person embodied with a passion for knowledge of everything.

Preceding Irene is her beloved husband, Gerhardt, and her son, Thomas. Survivors include her son Jonathan (Terry), daughter Mary Elizabeth (Eric), daughter-in-law Libby, and grandchildren, Ryan, Lauren, and Chrissy.

The memorial service will be May 7th at 11am at Faith Lutheran, 1620 Pinehurst Rd, Dunedin, Florida. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the World Wildlife Fund in memory of Irene K Keller.

    I loved my Aunt Irene very much. Even though I haven’t seen her for a while, I will miss her. She always treated me as if I was very special. I know our family in Minnesota loved her very much. Now they are all together in Heaven. Let’s hope they are playing cards or putting together a puzzle or doing something else together. I remember she always loved to cook, especially lots of vegetables. It was always good. I know you all miss her. Sending you all my biggest hugs and prayers in your time of mourning.
