Barbara Keller -- R.I.P.

Barbara Stern Keller passed away on October 15th, 2015 at the age of 72. She was a resident of La Mision, Baja California via Washington D.C., LA, New York, Canada and Tillamook, Oregon. She passed from this earth and into Heaven in the early morning at a San Diego area hospital. She had been seen at the ER on Saturday for rapid degeneration of movement as well as neck pain. She had emergency surgery on her neck to relieve compression of the vertebra cutting off circulation of her spinal fluid. She came through surgery well and was scheduled for release on Thursday. She instead found herself unexpectedly walking into the arms of her personal savior. She died peacefully in her sleep.

Barbara Stern Levy was born on March 22nd, 1943 at Garfield Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. Her father Melvin Levy preceded her in death. She is survived by her mother Evelyn Levy and brother Edward Levy both of Washington, D.C. She is also survived by her daughter Rosalie Richards and her grandchildren Sarah, Benjamin, Aaron, Emma and Hannah of New burg Indiana.

She was the editor, owner and operator of the Baja Review. The final issue with Barbara on the front was published in October. It was her passion and since its inception, promoted tourism in Baja. She received great enjoyment from running the newspaper. She was a retired R.N. with a degree in Psychology. She had many jobs through her years, many of them are dealing with child care. She wrote two books; one on rug hooking and a gluten free cookbook and had one more in the works at the time of her death. Barbara enjoyed talking to her family on the phone and visits to their home in Indiana. Her family was a delight to her and she talked about them often. She enjoyed walking on the beach and working on her home and property with her friend and employee Pedro. She had many hobbies including sewing, rug hooking, reading, music, movies and talking to anyone and everyone she met. She said that if you think something nice about someone you have to say it and she did. Often.
