Estella was executive secretary of the Fayette County, Indiana chapter of the American Red Cross. She died in Fayette Memorial hospital where she had been since suffering a heart attack on February 24, 1940. She had worked the day before at the Red Cross Commissary of which she had had charge since it was established in 1931.
Miss Keller was a past president of the Business and Professional Women's Club and had been one of the club's most active members. At the time of her death she was a member of the board of Fayette Memorial hospital and the Red Cross. She was a member of the Central Christian church and the Loyal Daughters' Bible class. Before taking up social service work she was employed as factory nurse by the Indiana Lamp Company, and before that time had been office nurse and secretary for the late Dr. J. R. Mountain and Dr. J. S. Leffel.
Miss Keller had lived here all her life.
She was widely known through her work as investigator and relief worker for the Red Cross and in addition to having charge of the commissary she also conducted the chapter's welfare work among ex-soldiers and their families. She had served the Red Cross since the organization took over the commissary in 1931, and had operated the commissary before it became a Red Cross project.
Survivors are a sister, Mrs. Fred Sommer; three half brothers, William Keller of Richmond and John and Charles Keller of Connersville, the latter of whom is a patient in the local hospital; three nephews, Francis, Marion and Norman Keller of Connersville; and two cousins, Miss Elizabeth Elwood and William A. Elwood, with whom she resided at 402 West Ninth street.
