Jennifer Keller, 49, of Underwood, moved on to her heavenly home Saturday, April 18, 2020, under the care of her family and LB Hospice.
Jennifer Christine Siegfried was born on March 4, 1971 in St. Joseph, Missouri, the daughter of Rollin and Bonnie (Abernathy) Siegfried. In her early years, she moved with her family to Detroit Lakes, MN; Pierre, SD, and eventually Fergus Falls, MN, where she received her education, graduating from Fergus Falls High School in 1989. Jenni attended Jackson (Minn.) Technical College where she studied court reporting and medical transcription. A short time later, Jenni began what would be a long and fulfilling career at Lake Region Healthcare in Fergus Falls. She worked in several areas, including insurance and the Bridgeway mental health unit.
In 1995, Jenni married Dana Johnson, and they were blessed with four children.
On October 7, 2014, Jenni married Charles Lee Keller in Sisseton, South Dakota.
Jenni attended M State in Fergus Falls and earned her LPN certification in 2016 and qualified for the National Honor Society, all while working and raising her family. Jenni worked as an LPN and Lake Region Healthcare in the OB/GYN Department at the clinic, a job she truly loved.
In her spare time, Jenny enjoyed camping, fishing, attending concerts, and watching both the Minnesota Vikings and Minnesota Twins. One of her happiest moments was the day Chuck brought her home a John Deere riding lawn mower—it was truly her escape and she greatly enjoyed maintaining her yard. Jenni enjoyed home decorating, going to craft shows, rummage sales, and traveling with her family. Jenni volunteered for various causes in the community and at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, where she was a member. Jenni will be remembered for being a loving, caring, giving person who helped people in countless ways.
Jenni is survived by her husband, Chuck, of Underwood; four children, Tanner Johnson of Fergus Falls, Riley Johnson of Fergus Falls, Connor Johnson of Underwood, and Reagan Johnson of Underwood; four step-children, Samantha (Matt Aberle) Keller of Fargo, ND, Breonna Keller of Fargo, ND, Avery (Nate) Arel-Keller of West Fargo, ND; step-daughter-in-law, Coree Keller of Elizabeth; numerous step-grandchildren; mother, Bonnie Franklin of Fergus Falls; father, Rollin Siegfried of Eagle River, Wisconsin; brother, Adam Siegfried of Woodbury, MN; in-laws, Diana (Gary) Anderson of Fergus Falls; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Jenni is preceded in death by her stepson, Chase Keller; and an aunt, Cheri Siegfried.
