Audrey (Felton) McKeag


Audrey (Felton) McKeag, age 84, of Stanton, died Wednesday May 8, 2024, at Cannon Rivers Senior Living in Cannon Falls.

Audrey Lena Felton was born on November 22, 1939, the daughter of William and Ella (Bachman) Felton, on a farm north of Randolph.

On January 18, 1956 Audrey was united in marriage to David W. McKeag at First English Lutheran Church in Cannon Falls. Together they raised four children and she lived almost 68 years at the same address in rural Stanton.

Audrey was well known as a baker at Curt's Cannon Ball, making homemade pies and her famous monster cookies. After she quit baking, she learned the fine art of lefse making. Audrey and Dave would make more than a thousand dozen lefse a holiday season. They had people coming from all over the area for her tender lefse. Beside her deep faith and love of Jesus, she loved digging in the dirt and planting flowers. She knew all the best greenhouses in the area and was always eager to try a new variety or color of plant. She always looked forward to spring when the greenhouses opened.

Audrey's greatest blessing was her family. Survivors include her children, David B. (Jan) McKeag, Dixie (Marv) Schaffer, Dan McKeag, and Mike (Jodie) McKeag; grandchildren, Brett Schaffer, David D. (Nicci) McKeag, Luke Schaffer, Jessy (Jason) Welvaert, Jenny (Ricky Coffman) McKeag, Ellie McKeag and Trevor (Carly) Grems; great-grandchildren, Reyce and Jayce Schaffer, William and Isabella Welvaert, Graham and Hadley Grems; and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; her siblings, Harold Felton, Arnold Felton, Yvonne Montgomery, and Arlene Ringeisen; and her daughter-in-law, Zandra Soza McKeag. She will be missed by many...

No Flowers please, Audrey firmly believed flowers are for the living. Memorials are preferred to the donor's choice.

A memorial service will be at St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Randolph on Sunday, June 30, 2024. Visitation will be from 1 to 3 pm and a short service will begin around 3 pm.
