Charleston, South Carolina – Elizabeth “Liz” von Keller Johnson passed away peacefully in Summerville, South Carolina on December 15, 2021, after a brief illness. She was 74 years old.
Daughter of the late Arthur von Keller III and the late Elizabeth Roberts von Keller, Liz was born in Keane, NH. She moved to Camden as a child and graduated from Camden High School. After attending business school in Charlotte, her first job was for Dupont’s Camden factory. She ended her career as a Victims’ Rights Advocate for the Fifth Circuit Notary’s Office in Kershaw County.
Liz married Ronald “Ronnie” Johnson in 1967. Upon retirement, they moved to Beaufort, where they loved spending time on their boat and watching dolphins. Liz was an accomplished gardener with an encyclopedic knowledge of plants. She was also an excellent cook, especially of Low Country seafood. She was a dedicated caregiver for her father after her mother’s death and for Ronnie during his long illness before her death in 2009. Years later, she loved to sit on her porch at Folly Beach and watch the dolphins.
Of all her accomplishments, she was the happiest to be the mother of her only child, Jason “Jake” Keller Johnson. She made their home a safe haven for her friends, and she was very proud that they all kept in touch, even after they grew up and moved. She spent the last two years of her life living with Jake and his wife, Latasha, in Charleston.
Liz is survived by her son, Jake (Latasha); brother Arthur von Keller, IV (Beth); brother Teddy von Keller (Kim); nephew Nikolai von Keller (Diane); and nieces Travis von Keller and Elizabeth von Keller. A family memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made at lowcountrymarinemammalnetwork.org.
