She was a lifelong enrolled member of the tribe and was proud of her Native family and ancestry. Swede graduated from Valentine High School in 1951 and then moved to Hastings, NE, and attended cosmetology school. She then worked for many years as a beautician, owning her own salon. She also worked many years for the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska, Allen’s cosmetics, and later in life worked as a caregiver. She leaves those she touched with rich, loving memories.

Belva was preceded in death by her parents; husbands, Arthur Dycus and Dick Anderson; her loving daughter, Debra Bruntz in 2022, granddaughter Addie Dycus; and siblings, George E. Keller, Lillian M. Keller, and Richard L. Keller.
