Local philanthropist dies at 84

Adelaide Keller, one of San Mateo Medical Center’s greatest philanthropists, along with her husband George, has died. Keller died Saturday at Sequoia Hospital in Redwood City. She was 84.

Keller, who also donated generously to her alma mater, Wellesley College, won multiple awards for her charity in the Bay Area. She served on the medical center’s board for many years and also founded the Women’s Recovery Association in 1970 — the first residential treatment facility for recovering alcoholic females. Her work in addressing domestic violence led to the medical center’s creating The Keller Center for Family Violence Intervention in 2001.
