Doll was born to Zeb and Sarah Clements on September 2, 1922 in Rutherford County, North Carolina. She was doted on and loved by her sisters, Manola Clements Wylds and Christina Ruth Clements Raborn and brothers, Lidie Dorn Clements and George Oliver Clements, Sr.
Doll loved life to the fullest and enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Her laugh was infectious and people wanted to be near her. She was a member of Mount Lebanon Baptist Church. She graduated from Hephzibah High School in 1940 and married Clark Keck in 1945. Fiercely independent, she moved to Kansas City, Missouri to work for Farmers Insurance Company for 34 years. She retired to Jacksonville, Florida where she lived on the St. John’s River and then relocated to Charleston, South Carolina for several years. She settled near her nieces and nephews in Hephzibah, Georgia and spent much of her time gardening, laughing, playing a hand or two of cards, shopping, and collecting gifts for others. Doll delighted in the simple joys – a smile from a child and the bright lights of Christmas.
On many occasions, Doll said, “I have had a good life and I wouldn’t change a thing. I’ve met a lot of nice people and made a lot of good friends.”
She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great-great nieces and nephews and many special friends.
