Laura Keeble "Sister Keeble" (Mrs. Marshall Keeble)

"Ain't he a dandy?" --Laura Keeble

Good Mourning Widows. Joy to you and me.

Today we honor and welcome famous widow Laura Catherine Johnson Keeble, aka, Sister Keeble, wife of famous traveling evangelist Marshall Keeble to our joy-ous club.

Laura was 35 years of age when she met Marshall. They were married April 3, 1934.

Marshall was a recent widower and 20 years Laura's senior. Their marriage lasted 34 years.

Marshall was born December 7, 1878 and died April 20, 1968.

Laura helped raise Marshall's children. After the death of his daughter Beatrice in 1935, Laura raised her children. Though Laura never had any children of her own, she was known as "Mama" to many.

Laura Marshall died March 7, 2007. She was 108 years of age.

Mourning Joy:

Out in the middle of nowhere a UFO drops out of the sky at a gas station, the aliens not concerned go out of the ship. The ship even has the letters UFO emblazoned on the side. While the owner of the station stands speechless, his young employee goes and fills up their tank and even waves as they pull off. After they’re gone the owner looks shocked at his employee.

He says, "Do you realize what just happened?"

"Yeah”she replied?"

"Didn’t you see the letters UFO?"

"Yeah” she repeats "and?"

"Do you know what that means?"

"Gee boss, I've been working here for 5 years, of course I know what it means, “Unleaded Fuel Only."

After we remember Him, fingerhug your pen. Open your joy-nal. Write something. Go ahead. I dare you.

Have a joy-filled day Widows. And remember, we're not alone.
