    My name is Dawn Stauffer. I met Keely in 2003. I was instantly impressed by her grace. She was calm, loving, dedicated, passionate, firm but gentile, always kind, always ready to help, always finding joy, obedient, unwavering faithfulness, service oriented, loyal. I was always in admiration of her disposition throughout her pregnancies and child rearing. Her knowledge was vast and accurate, always willing to take time to teach. I will forever cherish the times we shared together. Her children a living testimony to her commitment to raise them with gentle guidance, joy for God, and unending love. She knew the glory of God and shared it through her passion for her family and friends. My favorite memories with Keely and her exceptional children were at Sleepy Hollow Park in Laingsburg Michigan. I taught a Wednesday swim class there for the eldest children Joshua, Sarah, Rachel, & at the lake for the family. It was late spring so that we could have the most privacy and she could retain their dignity and safety in a public space, it was cold! They were nervous on the first day as anyone learning a new skill might be. I left feeling that I was ineffective after focusing on torpedoes. One would propel self with the power of their legs & feet through the water. To my suprise the children were actually so focused on the learning that I mistook their experience. I felt honored in instructing them unlike I had ever experienced. The next week they all glowingly took turns to show me how much each, politely in turn had improved. I found new ways to challenge the broad age range & skill level. Again they returned the following week even less nervous & more excited to share what they learned and how they improved in turn being polite but excited to be next to share! I was in love and hoped to honor Keely with her exemplary children whom I grew to adore, like her so quickly. I appreciated how they trusted my experience and guidance by focusing on the teachings and sharing their passion for learning each week. Keely was unlike any mother I had ever been lucky enough to witness. So gentle yet so powerful. I miss her each time I think of her and I think of her often. It’s hard to believe she has died. I’m so happy when I can hear her saying the names of her children from my memory. Her children her legacy. Thank you Keely for being my friend ❤.
