Doretta Kilgore Obituary

Kendallville – Doretta A. Kilgore left this world on Friday February 23, 2024 after a graceful acceptance of a non-treatable form of cancer in the past year. Doretta was born in Madison, Indiana on July 27, 1953, while living in the Kendallville, Indiana area most of her life.

Doretta attended Raven’s Croft Beauty College in Fort Wayne and was a Nail Technician.

She worked at JCIM for 14 years and WorkOne-DeKalb for 4 years.

Doretta was a member of the Kendallville Women of the Moose.

Doretta was preceded in death by her son Michael S. Walton which she considered her greatest accomplishment. Doretta was also preceded by her husband’s Lee Walton, Steve Meyer, and Robert Kilgore along with siblings Beverly Jackson, Rex Robertson, Walter Robertson, and Judy Robertson. Doretta knew more loss in this life than most can imagine but showed perseverance through the trials of her life.

Doretta is survived by a grandson, Brennen Walton who she considered her pride and joy. Additionally, she is survived by her siblings, Brenda Laurik, Janet (Jim) Gibson, Patty Lee, Peggy Mellas-Kilgore, Tony (Debbie) Maranto, Robbie (Billie Sue) Robertson, Mary (Frank) Cahill and Brian (Jane) Robertson. Additionally, she was loved and will be missed by countless nieces and nephews.

Doretta was her own person while always willing to help others with whatever resources she had. Her sense of peace with cancer was comforted by Knowing Christ and being united with her beloved son. Her family prays that all that was lost in this life will be renewed and reunited in the next.

Viewing will begin at 12 noon Monday with a Funeral Service at 2 PM at Feller and Clark Funeral Home, 1860 Center Street, Auburn, IN.
