Here is an obituary from the Philadelphia Inquirer sent to me by Karl Catob:

''Sept. 22, 1991, Helene I. (nee Catob), beloved wife of Robert M. Keller of Havertown, PA, mother and best friend of Kristina Moir and mother-in-law of David Moir, sister of Karl Catob and Gertrude Carmer, also survived by 2 granddaughters, Kelsey and Jamie Moir.''

*Personal knowledge of Gertrude Caroline Catob Howse Carmer:
          Helene was the youngest child in her family, being only a small girl when her mother died. She left home at a young age but was fortunate to have met a good man who was always deeply devoted to her. They longed for children but had to wait a long while before baby Krissy blessed their union. Helene enjoyed many things, travel and such, but first and foremost came her family and home. She always loved her northern Michigan roots but established new roots in Pennsylvania, where she lived out her days. Always exuberant about everything, she was a light, wherever she went. She developed cancer and even joked about that! Helene left us before we were ready to part with her.
