2B Wednesday, Feb. 3, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter VITAL STATISTICS Grace Bulla Keller I Longtime Gene- see Valley/Indi- an Valley resi- dent Grace Bulla Keller passed from this life Jan. 4, 2010. She died peacefully in her home in Genesee, sur- rounded by two of her chil- dren and three grandchil- dren. Grace was born May 19, 1911, in Randleman, N. C., the third oldest in a Quaker family of three brothers and eight sisters born to Allie Marsh Vuncannon and Thomas Jefferson Bulla. She grew up in High Point, N.C., and was educated at Guilford College until the Great Depression forced her to help support the large family. She was married to her first love, Tommy Taylor, in the years before WW II, but was widowed in late 1942. She met and married her husband of 36 years, Rex Ed- win Keller, while working in Washington, D.C., during the war. Rex, originally from a Colorado hardrock mining family, was then a major in the army. After the war they moved to southern California and later to Baja California, Mex- ico, where they developed a small mine and milling oper- ation in the outback south of La Paz. There she raised their three children, home school- ing them through their mid- dle grammar school years. After eight years the family moved back to their home in the hills above West Holly- wood, where Grace worked as a school teacher. Rex passed away in 1979, and Grace moved to Plumas County to live near her son, Gordon, and his wife, Jeanette Brauner, and their two children. During those years, Grace lived in one of several homes she built dur- ing her life, became a local health food guru (a lifelong passion), and actively pur- sued her love of music. She performed around Plumas County with her friends as the Melodeers and "Grace and Love." Grace was well known lo- cally for her energy and en- thusiasm for exercise, health food (her "green drink" re- mains a well known concoc- tion), bridge and being the matriarch of a large extend- ed musical family, Amazing Grace. She was always ex- tremely enthusiastic about life--positive to the very end, saying every day was the best day of her life! In 2006, at age 95, Grace moved to Eugene, Ore., with daughter, Gall and husband Palmer Utterback and their family, who cared for her in their home. There she found new friends and continued her love of music, performing with family, friends, and occa- sionaUy with a popular local group, the Sugar Beets. She finally had to hang up her autoharp, but loved to lis- ten and harmonize with famil- iar songs until the very end. She is survived by her two youngest sisters, Ann Grant and Winkle Rotello; her chil- dren, Donald, Gordon and Gall; her grandchildren, Monica and Melissa, Daniel and Alyne Rose, and Katie, Danny and Jimmy and a host of nieces and nephews. established 1929 MONUMENTS BENCHES * SIGNS BORDERS ADDRESS STONES GRANITE MARBLE NATURAL STONE 1 iO PACIFIC ST.
