Frieda Clara Keiner was born on March 12, 1909, in Athens, to Christian Jacob and Elise (nee Romang) Keiner. She was raised and educated in Athens until 1922, at which time her family moved to Greenwood, where they purchased a dairy farm anf fox farm at the end of Depot Street. She completed her education in Greenwood, where she graduated from Greenwood High School. She then worked at the drug store in Greenwood until her marriage to Hugh Severson on Sept. 29, 1940, at Zion United Church of Christ, Greenwood. They moved periodically, due to her husband’s employment as an electrical lineman, and settled back in Greenwood after his retirement in 1968. She was a homemaker and housewife. Her husband died on Jan. 26, 1985. She continued to reside in Greenwood until entering the Marshfield Care Center in March 2001. She was a member of Immanuel United Church of Christ and a former member of Zion United Church of Christ; was formerly an active member of the U.C.C. Women’s Guild; a member of the Clark County Homemakers; and had many interests, but especially loved playing bingo in her later years, gardening and flowers.

She will be sadly missed by one daughter, Carol (Roy) Kaisler, Colgate; one sister-in-law, Grace Luntz, Marshfield; nieces; nephews; and other relatives and friends.

Preceding her in death were her parents; her husband; one daughter, Karen Faith Severson in 1943; two brothers, Henry and Carl Keiner; and three sisters, Louise Keiner, Martha Corbin, and Edith Gotz.
