Obituary

Josephine Era Keisler was born on May 29, 1926 in Muskogee, Oklahoma. She passed away on September 25, 2020 in Muskogee. She was known as "Jo" or "Josie" to her husband, family and friends.

Josephine was preceded in death by her parents, Maston Stephen Hill and Era Shaver Hill; her husband, Berley John Keisler; her brothers, Bob Hill, Junior Hill, Jimmy Hill and Charlie Hill; her sisters, Lavinia Pickard, and Faye Brock; her daughter-in-law, Mary Ann Keisler; and her step-grandson, Ryan Goff.

She is survived by her daughter, Faye (Wally) Waits, her son, Steve Keisler, her step-grandsons Jamie Goff and Wally (Monica) Waits, her step-granddaughters Misty (Shaun) Haacke and Christie (Bob) Mercogliano, seven step-great-grandchildren: Amanda and Jessica Goff, Adeline and Eleanor Waits, and Kaylee Savannah, and Dakota Haacke; and many other relatives.

Jo was the fifth of eight children, she enjoyed telling stories about growing up in a large family on a farm in Oktaha. Her stories varied greatly -- moving the beds outdoors to sleep in the hot summer months, walking to school with her siblings, and watching the pigs slurp up watermelons with delight are just a few. She loved the television show The Waltons because it reminded her of home.

Berley John Keisler, her one true love, came into her life when he was stationed at Camp Gruber in 1945. They were married within a few months and celebrated almost 74 years of marriage together before he passed away in 2019.

Josephine was a devoted mother. She walked her children to school, and helped the teacher by being a "room mother." Steve remembers Mom watching all his softball games and her good cooking. Faye treasures her memories of Mom's companionship on shopping trips, medical appointments, family visits and phone calls.

For several years Jo worked with her husband at the store, Honey Springs Trading Post, in Oktaha. She enjoyed seeing all the school children and getting to talk to her neighbors.

Josephine was much loved by family and friends and will be remembered fondly.

Graveside services will be held 2:00 pm, Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at Oktaha Cemetery in Oktaha, OK with Rev. Ron Lindsey officiating. Arrangements are under the care and direction Lescher-Millsap Funeral Home. Viewing will be Tuesday from 10:00 am to 8:00 pm and Wednesday from 9:00 am - Noon. The family will greet friends at the funeral home from 5:00 -7:00 pm. At the family’s request masks are required at the family visitation.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Oktaha Methodist Church, PO Box 83, Oktaha, OK 74450 or to Oktaha Cemetery Assn. P.O. Box 324, Oktaha, OK 74450.
