Wishing the family comfort and peace. Jeannie was a beautiful person inside and out. I will remember her always as a very kind and compassionate person, even though she said I was a clone of Maxine!! Of course she was correct!
Prayers for your whole family.

Our society marks fame by how many home runs someone hits, or by a song that's a radio hit, or how many times one's face appears on the cover of a popular magazine, or by Oscars, Emmys or Tonys. Though these things are indeed notable, true greatness in life is perhaps not any thing that requires any touch of celebrity fan fare at all. We young men and women of Pine Grove Church and the community of Sunnyburn, were so fortunate, though we may not have recognized it at the time, to have brushed with such distinct notability in the likeness of Victor and Jean Kilgore. There weren't any TV cameras or reporters. They went about their lives showing us by example in thought, word, and deed how to be good citizens, know right from wrong, and to serve the Lord with gladness and thanksgiving. They were simple honest human beings who raised their three daughters to become the stalwart folks they are in their own right. Great legacies don't need to be found in words in a headline on the front newspaper page. But when their memories remind you of so many good things that touched your life as they walked their paths with grace and good will. ah.... there in is found greatness. Cathy, Bonnie. and Patti, like all of us who are blessed enough to live lengthy years eventually we all become orphans. May the peace of the Lord be with you as the wonderful memories of this gracious lady you knew as Mom flood to shelter you in this time of grief.

I was so sorry to hear of Jean's passing. She welcomed me like family the first time I met her, and the whole time I knew her.

We will celebrate her life, and Grandpa Victor's, in our home, and I will do my best to raise little Victor in the example this beautiful couple gave us all on how to treat each other and others.

May her memory be eternal.

I am saddened to hear the news of Jean's passing. She was a gentle soul and a lovely lady. I enjoyed working
with her at Clearview Elementary and on the board of the Friends of the Collinsville Library. Her sense of humor
was one I well remember and I can still hear her chuckle. May happy memories keep her in your hearts.
