Nancy J. Keto (Walker)

Nancy J. Keto (Walker), 58, passed away Aug. 19, 2011, in Boise.

A joint graveside memorial service will be held for both Nan and Joe on Friday, Sept. 9, 2011, at 2 p.m. at the McCall Cemetery.

Nancy (Nan) was born Sept. 9, 1952, in Caldwell and raised in McCall. She proudly attended and graduated from Gem State Academy in 1970.

In December of that year, she married the love of her life, Joseph A. Keto, Jr. of Boise. Later Joe’s work as an RN allowed Nan to live at home, although bed-ridden, for many years under his loving care.

They loved reading scriptures together, often repeating the Lord’s Prayer. They enjoyed living peacefully in their McCall home until his untimely passing Jan. 29, 2011.

Nan was a life-long member of the Seventh-day Adventist church. Growing up, Nan was a free spirit, fearless, and full of imagination. She was a devoted and loving mother.

She and her family enjoyed precious time with friends in McCall, taking day trips along the river, to the hot springs and at the lake, camping, picnics, and target shooting.

She and Joe were avid Boise State football fans, and watched all the games together.

Nan had an angelic singing voice and was given the privilege of traveling across Europe with the Southern California Adventist Youth Chorale during the summer of 1969. She continued to sing throughout her life at church, weddings, and numerous other functions.

With her sweet personality and sense of humor still intact, she graciously lived with her multiple sclerosis for 30 years. Her unstoppable spirit was felt by so many and will be desperately missed by everyone.

Nan is survived by her daughter, Amy Keto-Hammon of Boise; mother, Bette Walker of McCall; brother, Rand Walker of McCall; sister, Debra English (Walker) of Renton, Wash.; and granddaughter, Chloe Hammon of Boise.

She was preceded in death by her son, James J. Keto; father, Burton E. Walker; daughter, Sarah Miriam Debra Keto; and husband, Joseph A. Keto, Jr.
