Laura Nell Keaton January 26 1934 June 15 2018

Obituary for Laura Nell Keaton Laura Nell’s work here is done. On Friday, June 15, 2018, she received a call, the sort of call she couldn’t refuse. It was a call for an appointment from which she will not be returning. This appointment comes with an incredible benefit – a reunion with family and friends, some of which she has not seen in a very long time. She is finally able to take her seat in the cabin in the corner of Gloryland where she can write her poetry and sing to her heart’s content. She leaves us with so many gifts, especially a guide for living a gracious life led in prayer and forgiveness. Her presence will be deeply missed. Laura Nell Keaton was born on January 26, 1934, daughter of the late Theodore and Ollie Newland. She was valedictorian of the 1951 graduating class at Happy Plains High School.
