Kathleen Clayton Kilgore
(24 Apr 1948 - 5 Jan 2008)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   The sad news continues to arrive.  Kate Clayton Kilgore passed away Saturday, January 5, 2008 at the age of 59.

    From Johnnie Bateman ('67 / '70) of VA - 01/05/08 - "Another Passing":


Kenny Kilgore went to Magruder School with us, although I don't think he graduated from NNHS. We both are Past Masters of Bremond Lodge. I do believe that Kate was local also.


Kate Kilgore, wife of Worshipful Kenny Kilgore (Past Master of Bremond Lodge No. 241) and Past Worthy Matron of Emera OES Chapter No. 31, passed away this morning after a long battle with cancer.

The funeral services are incomplete at this time, but I will put them out as soon as they are available.

   Oh, how sad! Thank you for letting us know, Johnnie.  Our sincerest sympathies on the loss of your friend.

    YORKTOWN - Kathleen 'Kate' Kilgore, 59, passed away Saturday, Jan. 5, 2008.

A Newport News native, she was born to Mary L. and Alexander Clayton on April 24, 1948.

Kate had been a teacher's reading aide in the Newport News school system, and a Sunday school teacher at Providence United Methodist Church in Dare. She was past Worthy Matron of Emera Chapter #31 O.E.S. and a member of Lorraine Clark Fellowship Circle. She was a friend to all, and to many others who needed help. In her life she made her family and friends priority. She was the best friend and companion to her husband, Kenny, and was the living example to her son, Clay, of all that God would want a mother to be.

Kate is preceded in death by her daughter, Mary Kathleen; her father, Alexander; and her brother, William H. Clayton.

She is survived by her husband, William 'Kenny' Kilgore; son, William 'Clay' Kilgore and wife, Tammy; mother, Mary L. Clayton; many nieces, great nieces, nephews, great nephews; and sisters-in-law, Janice Edwards and Jackie Clayton.

Kate will be greatly missed by all of those in life who had the good fortune of her friendship. She did not seek recognition for her good deeds. She had an infectious smile and met no strangers. She loved her life and family on earth, and is now in the loving arms of her Father in Heaven. We love you Kate, and will miss you.

An Eastern Star service will be held at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 8, at Peninsula Funeral Home, with a visitation to follow until 8:30 p.m. A reception will take place at 11 am on Wednesday at Providence United Methodist Church. A funeral service will follow at noon, with the Rev. Kay Barstow and the Rev. John Price officiating. Subsequent interment in Peninsula Memorial Park.

Peninsula Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Come, Ye Disconsolate

Words by Thomas Moore; alt. by Thomas Hastings
Music by Samuel Webbe

Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish.
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."

Here see the bread of life; waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
