Dee was born on July 8, 1934 in Akron, Ohio. She was the daughter of Obed and Nora (Brown) Ledford of Blairsville, GA. and was raised by her sister Millie and her husband, Al Carver, in Ohio. She was preceded in death by her parents and her three loving sisters Thelma, Mildred and Mayo, and their brother, Robert Ensley Ledford, who was lost to them way too young.

The couple married in 1956 and had four children, Richard Charles Keith JR, Laurel Ann Keith, Mrs. Paul (Janet) Douglas and David Ledford Keith. Dee became a nurse at Maine Medical Center in the early 1970’s and soon went to work as a geriatric nurse, retiring from Tremont Nursing Home in 2000. Dee had a great sense of humor, she loved to laugh and enjoy the company of friends and family- always.
She is survived by her 4 children, granddaughter Kristina Keith Kodzev, grandsons Jake Douglas and Nick Douglas, 3 great granddaughters, 2 cousins Marie and Frances and several nieces and nephews.
