Marilyn Kimbell Killgore

 

Marilyn Ruth Kimbell Killgore was born on August 2, 1935 to David Aubyn and Wilma Dale Kimbell at home in Arizona, LA. She entered into rest on January 4, 2024 in Sibley, LA. Marilyn is now in the presence of her Lord and Savior.

 

Marilyn graduated from Lisbon High School in 1953. She graduated from LA Tech with an Associate Degree in Secretary of Science. Then, she and Sidney Killgore married in August 1955. Marilyn was a devoted Christian and an active member of First United Methodist Church of Homer until her health prevented her from attending. She taught Sunday School, sang in the choir, a member of the United Methodist Women, a member of the Comfort Ministry and a supporter of The Red Bird Mission. Marilyn was a great prayer warrior for her family and friends. Many problems have been solved by talking to Mamaw.

 

Marilyn worked over 30 years as office manager and bookkeeper for Hinton Well Service and Williams Well Service in Lisbon.

 

Marilyn was a loving and devoted mother and Mamaw. She spent many hours at sporting events, church and school activities and any occasion that granted her the opportunity to show her love and support for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

 

Marilyn is preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Sidney C. Killgore and son, Scott Killgore.
