Margaret (Joan) Keathley, Petros

Margaret (Joan) Keathley, age 64 of Petros took her last breath on Monday, May 13, 2019 at home surrounded by her loving family. She was so much more than a mommy and a grandma to her family. She was a special lady that everyone loved and enjoyed spending time with. She was loving and kind to all she met and she never met a stranger. On May 13, 1955, the late Lloyd Haskel and Mary Evelyn Bell of Crossville, announced the birth of triplett baby girls, Joan, Janet and Jewell! They were the first set of triplets born in Tennessee!
