Keelan Robert Woodruff (7/07/87 7/22/13). Keelan is now resting forever peacefully in his mother’s arms in Heaven. DiAnna, his mother and best friend, preceded him in death on 10/26/2001. Keelan spent his time from birth through his early teen years in Tacoma, WA and then moved with his family to California where he resided until his passing. Since graduating high school he has spent his time as a varsity football position coach at Thousand Oaks HS and as a server in the local area. Keelan’s love for all aspects of football defined his life in his adult years. Past players continue to comment on Keelan’s coaching ability and his ability to be a friend/mentor off the field, which is evidence of Keelan’s passion to teach all of his players the right and wrong way to handle themselves, both on and off the field. He is survived by his father and stepmother (Keven and Robin), brother and sisters (Kyle, Jackie and Brittany), grandparents (Vic and Rosemarie Kowalski and Sy and Charlotte Maxwell), many aunts, uncles, cousins and girlfriend (Courteney). Also preceding him in death were his grandparents (Bob and Lill) as well as extended family members. Rest easy Keelan, the footprint you have left on us will never be forgotten or diminished. We love you now, forever and always.

Being the oldest, she took on the role of a second mother who was very loving, giving, kind, and patient. Growing up on farms in Holt County, always near Atkinson, she attended one room school houses and then went on to the Atkinson High School. Even though she was an excellent student, she had to drop out of school in the later part of 9th grade due to complications of a burst appendix. Berniece married Ralph Seger in 1943, at the age of 17; had two children; Arlene Ralphine and Kenneth Allen; anddivorced in 1953. In 1955-Berniece, Arlene, and Ken moved to Washington State with her sister Eunice and her husband (Dale Closson).They settled in Pierce County.She found a job at Petersons Poultry Plant. While at this job she met her second husband Arnold Robinson.Berniece and Arnold were married in 1956, and they had one daughter-Cheri Rene’; and divorced in 1958. In 1960 she married her third husband Jerry Hartloff; had one son Leon Jerome; anddivorced in 1966. While working at the Peterson Poultry Plant she sustained a work injury to her hand. After rehabilitationshe went on to Barber School and graduated in 1970.She apprenticed and got a job at Summit View Barber Shop which she then went on to own and operate. In 1983, she was injured in a car accident and had to give up barbering and sell her shop. She greatly missed her customers and shop until her dying day.
Berniece was multi-talented,very mechanically inclined and could fix almost anything. She was hard working, independent, a great cook, seamstress and “the family stain remover”. She was known as “the hostess with the mostest”. She loved gardening, sewing, painting, traveling, reading, playingcards¸ blowing bubbles with the kids, bird watching, camping, and the beauty of nature-where “she felt closest to God”. She loved going to the ocean, walking along the beach, finding shells, agates, rocks (she was even blessed with finding a rock with opal in it on a Pacific beach), and flying kites with her great/grand children and her sister Eunice. One of Berniece’s greatest moments was being joyously reunited with her son Michael Warner. Hergreatest joys were familywhom she loved and cared deeply for; she was Mom and Grandma Hartloff to many. The best gifts you could give her were a visit, a call,share a hug or to watch the sun rise or set with her. The last several years she experienced profound hearing loss. We would like to give thanks to all those who helped and were patient with her on visits, both in person and on the phone. Without you, watching the birds, her faithful companions Stinky & Chloe, special helpers- Scott, Ryen& Todd her world would have been unbearable.
