Kathrin, 88, of Dardanelle, AR passed away Friday Sept. 22, 2017 at her home. Graveside services were held Monday Sept. 25, 2017 at White Chapel Cemetery.

Kathrin was born 12/8/1928 in Hattisburg, MS to Christopher and Zeffie Nelson. She enjoyed garage sales, taking her daughters purses and claiming them as her own, dancing the boogaloo, arguing with Patrick, confusing us all with not being able to go up one step, but found on more than one occasion standing on a lawn chair, collecting monkeys, trying to win the award of the most strokes had without medical intervention, and spending time with her favorite companion, Littlebit.

On Nov. 22, 1967 after hitting him on the head she forced marriage upon Charley Keller for life with one option to renew.

She is survived by her daughters and son-in-law; Jean (Patrick) Zimmer, of Dardanelle, AR and Charleen Petree of Liberty, MO; and sister, Jean Hill of Purvis, MS; grandchildren, Joseph Claybrook, Corey Keller, Kathy Parks, and Tommy Petree, great grandchildren, Anthony Ketron, Michael Parks, and Eli Claybrook.
