  • Barbara Jean Keiser, age 65, of Steuben Hill Road, passed away on Monday morning, February 18, 2013, in Faxton-St. Luke's Medical Center, New Hartford. She had the comfort of her loving husband at her side.
    She was born on October 23, 1947, in San Angelo, TX, daughter of the late William S. and Dorothy D. Bruton Arnold. Raised in a military family, she received her education in Germany as well as stateside, graduating from San Angelo High School. Barbara furthered her education at San Angelo State College.

    In her leisure time, Barbara enjoyed crafts. She was naturally gifted at working with clay and sketching. She wrote poetry and, with a keen eye for color, loved to redecorate her home. Her travels to care for family and share in their life triumphs are treasured memories they will cherish forever. To all who knew her, they will never forget her warm, friendly manner and her unforgettable smile. She will be truly missed.
    Surviving are her devoted husband of thirty-six years, John; a brother, William "Bill" Arnold and his wife, Michelle, of Fairbanks, Alaska; two sisters and their husbands, Suzanne "Susie" and Michael Bartniski, of Houston, TX, and Vina and Tony Dorff, of Spring Creek, NV; three nieces, Audra Dorff, Tina Baugh and Charlene Nyhart; and one nephew, Parker Dorff.
