Our incredible Mother, Diana Louise Kilgore, 80, died suddenly on Saturday, August 20, 2022, in Mesa, Arizona

She was born in Weston, West Virginia, on 29 October 1941, to the late Duward SR. and Nina Cottrill. She was married to Boby Kilgore for almost 48 amazing years and widowed on 7 February 2012.  She is survived by Two Sons, Christopher Kilgore and Wife Cynthia Kilgore: Todd Kilgore, Wife Sandra Kilgore, Grandson Kody Kilgore and Granddaughter Kylee Kilgore: One Daughter, Teresa Whitt, Husband Hal Whitt, Granddaughters Mattie and Megan Whitt and a Sister-In-Law, Jeannie Cottrill. Her Brother, Duward Cottrill JR. proceeded her in death.

She always worked to help support her family. She worked many types of jobs, in many different places, as a Military Wife has to do. She retired from Boeing after years of hard work and dedicated service to those around her.

However, what you really need to know about our Mom, is she was someone to look up to and want to be like. She had always worked hard at caring for her children, as our Dad traveled proudly serving in the United States Air Force. She cared for the home, the cars, the bills and anything else that life threw at her. She was very competitive when it came to sports. She was an Athlete in School, but found joy in Tennis and Softball as an adult. She could pitch a softball that you never thought would come down, aka “The Dew-Drop!” She traveled the world and got to see things some of us could not never imagine. She rode Camels in Egypt in front of the Pyramids, toured Rome and saw a Bull Fight in Spain. She reveled in the fact that she could Always take care of herself and anything else that came her way. She was a great friend to those whom knew her. She was also the best person to support and cheer you on! 

It is so hard to say “Good Bye” for now. We hope that you can join us to Celebrate her Life on November 5, 2022 at 9:15 am at the Bunker Chapel at 33 N. Centennial Way Mesa, AZ.
