Marlana M. (Miller) Keeler, age 78, passed away May 9, 2020 at UTMC from complications of COVID-19. Although her family could not be there physically, she was surrounded in love in our hearts. Marlana was born December 19, 1941 in Toledo, Ohio to Burrell and Fern (Thebeau) Miller. She attended Sylvania Burnham High School and in 1959, married the love of her life, David K. Keeler.
Marlana retired from St. Charles Hospital as a dietitian and then drove bus for Sylvania Schools. She enjoyed camping, boating, going to garage sales, playing darts, and gardening. She loved the singer Loretta Lynn and her dog Rocky. Marlana was always the life of the party and the biggest jokester of the family. Her grandchildren always say she was a woman never shy of words.
Marlana will be greatly missed by her husband of 61 years, David Keeler; children, Tracey Tressler, Charmaine (Larry) Hill, Todd (Susan) Keeler, son in law Edward Darga; grandchildren, Danielle (Eddie) Salisbury, Matthew (Linda) Snyder, Chad Snyder, Cory (Jodi) Tressler, Michael (Lauren) Snyder, Alaina (Jason) Pool, William Reece, Daisy Trautsch; 10 Great Grandchildren.
