Deborah Keener
First Appearance: Dumbing of Age 13 July 2013
Spouse: Jeremiah Keener (husband)
Children: Dorothy Keener (daughter)
Deborah Keener is Dorothy's loving, progressive mother. She and her husband visited the IU campus during Freshmen Family Weekend to see her daughter and meet Dorothy's new boyfriend, Walky.

During their visit, the Keeners also ran into Joyce Brown's parents. Unsurprisingly, the Browns weren't impressed to learn that Dorothy's parents had raised her areligiously.


  • Has a thing for hugging her daughter's boyfriends, whether they want it or not.
  • Dorothy apparently gets her freckles from her mother.
  • When the character designs for Dorothy's parents were first posted on Tumblr, somebody actually guessed they were Dina's folks. Baffling.
