Rose Watkins Kilgore

February 23, 1948 ~ January 7, 2021 (age 72)







Early in the morning hours of January 7, 2021, the Lord took the hand and guided Rose Watkins Kilgore, at the age of 72, to her heavenly home.  There she was reunited with her daughter Rosie, her husband John, and so many friends and loved one who had gone on before.    Rose was born on February 23, 1948 and she resided in Jasper, TN.  She was a member of Victory Baptist Church, but more than that, she knew Jesus Christ thru personal salvation. 


Rose is survived by her sons Robert (Jacqueline) Miller and Shane (Liz) Kilgore; grandsons, Andrew Kilgore, Blake (Taya) Miller, and Austin Miller; great-grandchildren, Baylor and Blakely Miller; and brother-in-law, Sheddie (Jannis) Kilgore.
