Georgia Irene (Hendricks) Keeth 1890-1986

Georgia Irene Keeth, daughter of George and Edna Smith Hendricks, was born May 23, 1890 near Crocker, Missouri, and departed this life February 15, 1986 at Lake Ozark General Hospital, having attained the age of 95 years, eight months, and 23 days.

She was married to Wilbert Keeth on December 22, 1907, and to this union four children were born.  She lived most of her life in the Crocker area, and as a young girl accepted Christ as her Savior and joined the First Baptist Church of Crocker, where she remained a member for many years.  In later years she transferred her membership to Richland First Baptist Church, where she was a faithful member until her health prevented her from attending.

She is survived by her four children: Gladys Johnson of Richland, Missouri; Wilma Bux of Webster Grove, Missouri; Wayne Keeth of Springfield, Missouri; and Loran Keeth of Richland, Missouri; eight grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren, two brothers: Pete Hendricks of Potosi, Missouri, and Glen Hendricks of Crocker, Missouri, also a host of other relatives and friends.  She will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, four sisters and three brothers, one grandson and one granddaughter.

Funeral services were at the First Baptist Church on Tuesday, February 18, 1986, at 11:00 a.m. with Rev. Roger Marshall officiating.

Music was provided by Rusty Shadel, soloist, and Mrs. Gary Brown, accompanist.

Burial was in the Crocker Cemetery under the direction of Colonial Funeral Chapels.

Escorts were her grandsons.
