Title Lucile
Description Robert (Bob) was the oldest son, and when the war started he was a member of the Manti National Guard. They were the first troops to be called up when the war began. He served for over four years in the Pacific area, working most of the time as a radio operator and never getting home on furlough in all those long years. Today, he is living with his mother and helps her in any way he can. Conrad (Con) was the second son. He enlisted and was assigned to a specialized training program, the Signal Corps. After the Battle of the Bulge, he spent a year or so in Germany as a reinforcement. Today, he and his wile Margaret are retired and live in Manti. He is the father of six children. Dan. the youngest son. joined the Air Corps as a belly gunner. During the war he was stationed in England and flew thirty-five missions over France and Germany. During his years in the service he met only one man from Manti. Utah-Don Frischknecht. Today. Dan is married and the father of eight children. He is a practicing attorney in Price, Utah. Ann was the late-corner in the Keller family. She attended our local schools and graduated from Manti High School, as did her brothers. She married and had six children. She died in 1992. When Lucile was ninety years old. she talked to the Manti Messenger about her sewing machine: "We are still in working order although our finish is not quite what it used to be when we were both young." Today, she says she is enjoying life. She appreciates the goodness of her children, her families, her neighbors, and friends, and their concerns for her comfort and well-being. All her life she has tried to set a good example for those with whom she comes in contact and urges her family members to do the same. She also appreciates her heritage here in the Sanpete Valley and said. "I always try to do the best i can. 1 try to think good thoughts and learn better ways of doing things." To be thoughtful and helpful to others has been one of Lucile's goals in life. Now as she approaches October 9, 1996, we wish her well. She is a special lady! She has accomplished a century of living, one day at a time. She is an important member of our community. We love her. Happy Birthday, Lucile! 85
