OBITUARY - JOSEPHINE M. KELLNER

Josephine Margaret KELLNER, 81, Bolivar [MO], died Saturday, Jan. 22, 2000, at Strafford Care Center, Strafford, where she had recently been unanimously elected Resident Council president. She was born on Armistice Day, Nov. 11, 1918, in Ringold County, Iowa, the youngest child of Joseph and Margaret HUBBERT. She was preceded in death by her two older brothers, Stephen HUBBERT and Frank HUBBERT, local dairymen and farmers in the Karlin area. Her sister, Lillian, a retired member of the Religious Sisters of Mercy, resides in St. Louis.

She attended Elfindale Girls' Academy in Springfield where she enjoyed her studies, especially French and chemistry.

In 1934 she married Cyrill F. KELLNER, who preceded her in death in 1986. To this union five children were born, Joanne, Dennis, Larry, Vicki and Terri. Vicki also preceded Josephine in death in 1991.

To most who knew her, Josephine was a witty, articulate woman who enjoyed entertaining and visiting with others. She was a housewife and true farmer for many years before entering the workplace in retail. She was an advocate for the disabled and human rights. Josephine was a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Bolivar but was recently attending Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Springfield due to her change of address.

In addition to her sister and a host of nieces, nephews and friends, Josephine is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Joanne and Kenneth R. COOPER of St. Louis; her son and daughter-in-law, Dennis and Marge KELLNER of Lawrence, Kan.; her son and daughter-in-law, Larry and Ruth KELLNER of Strafford; and her youngest daughter, Terri HAINES of Strafford. Also surviving Josephine are 23 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren, or her "little olives," as she so enjoyed calling them at the dining table.

Services will be at 10 a.m. today (Wednesday) in Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Bolivar, with Father Patrick WISSMAN presiding. Burial will follow in St. Wenceslaus (Karlin) Cemetery. Pallbearers will be Bernard FRANCKA, Dannie HUBBERT, Chuck HUBBERT, Peter COOPER, Perry COOPER and Terry KELLNER. Arrangements are under the direction of Pitts Chapel.
