Obituary for Willise Still Keel
Willise Still Keel, 90, passed away on Thursday, January 2, 2020 at The Foothills Retirement Community. Mrs. Keel was born on January 28, 1929 in Barnwell County. She was the daughter of the late William Shellie Still and Zelma Bonds Still. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, Murray Hammond Keel, to whom she was married for over 58 years.
Mrs. Keel loved the Lord Jesus, and everything she did was in some way a reflection of that devotion whether as a wife, mother, grandmother, friend, or an educator. Her family was very important to her as exhibited by her devotion as a loving wife and nurturing mother and grandmother. She was an active member of Barnwell First Baptist Church having taught Sunday school for decades and also having served as a deacon. She was known for regularly visiting those in need, often with a freshly baked pound cake in hand. Mrs. Keel began her 34 year career of teaching English in the Barnwell School District in 1950. She thoroughly enjoyed teaching and even offered the Bible as a literature class as a means of reaching her students.
Funeral services will be held at 2 PM Sunday, at the Barnwell First Baptist Church with Rev. Bart Kelley and Rev. Billy Vaughn officiating. Burial will follow in the Barnwell County Memory Gardens on Reynolds Road. Visitation will be held from 5-7 PM, Saturday at Mole Funeral Home. Memorials may be made to the Dixon Benevolence Fund at Barnwell First Baptist Church (803-259-1128).
Survivors include her sons Byron (Kelley) Keel of Marietta, GA and Bruce (Amy) Keel of Easley, SC; grandchildren, Katie (Jonathan) Cox, Kimberly (Blake) Hill, Christopher (Marina) Keel, Barrett Keel, and Hunter Keel; and great grandchildren, Evelyn Cox and Sophia Hill. She was predeceased by her brothers Laverne Still and Hammond Still and her great grandchild Addelyn Willise Cox.
