Obituary of Florence Wagner Keene

Florence I. Keene DHS1930 passed away on July 26, 2009 at the age of 97. She has a large extended family and married Ed Keene in 1942.

She was a long time book keeper in Deadwood clear back to the days of the Adams Company. Her father Chalky Wagner is in the Deadwood Wall of Fame, see http://www.deadwoodcenturyawards.com/wall/wagner.shtml .

Florence enjoyed a lot of people and events in her lifetime, but the two things that brought her the greatest laughter and enjoyment were being the bear mascot for the Deadwood Bears football team in the 1960’s, and playing cards with her sisters and grandkids.

The Jeep in the wreck story published below belonged to her and Ed. Jack Keene, the Jeep driver, is their nephew.

A check of DHS records show Dinise and Kathryn Wagner graduated in 1928, Walter Wagner in 1929 and Florence in 1930. For obituary details see http://www.webfh.com/fh/obituaries/obituary.cfm?o_id=256957&fh_id=10483&ck=1
