Grace was a member of Immanuel Church for fifty years and considered the church her second family. She also belonged to The Officer Wives Club, Gourmet Club, Garden Club, and volunteered at the Thrift Shop on Barksdale AFB, for over twenty years. She also loved to play bridge and did so, as much as possible.

Grace is preceded in death by her husband retired Lt Colonel Victor J. Kellner, parents August and Augusta Wilsmann, Brother Roger Wilsmann, and sister Myrtle Krey. Grace is survived by son Terry Kellner and family, daughter Cheryl Bobbitt and her husband, Tom Bobbitt, their son Brad Bobbitt, his wife Raven Bobbitt and their son Eli Bobbitt, and several nieces and nephews.

Grace loved spending time with her family and especially her Great Grandson Eli. They loved each other immensely. She missed her Bossier City friends dearly when she moved to Keller, but adjusted to her new home quickly. Grace will be missed, but always in our thoughts and prayers.
