Beloved daughter, wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, Sharon "Lee" Kaylor, of Eagle, Idaho passed away on May 23rd, 2013.
Born December 14, 1940 in Klamath Falls, Oregon to parents Floyd and Lydia Gentry, Lee spent her childhood in Klamath Falls, meeting the love of her life, G. Lee Kaylor, in high school. They married November 8th, 1958 and remained together faithfully throughout her life.
Lee and Lee traveled over various Western states to support his career in newspaper publishing. Lee and her husband purchased the Reprographic Blue Print Company in Colorado Springs, Colorado and lived in Pocatello, Idaho as well, before finally settling in Eagle, Idaho.
Lee was a Paul Harris Fellow in Rotary International. She was a dedicated supporter of many non-profit organizations, especially Veteran's organizations and the Boise Rescue Mission. Lee lived her Christian ideals every day with an excellence of character and depth of compassion and generosity that made almost everyone she encountered feel as though they were special and cared for.
Lee took great pride in her home, but even greater pride in her family. She is survived by her husband, G. Lee Kaylor; brother, Vern Gentry (Trish); sister, Linda Carter (Kent); sister-in-law, Barbara Kaylor; daughter, Patti Eastman; sons: Terry Kaylor (Debbie) and Ian Kaylor (Jen); grandchildren: Gavin and Morgan Kaylor, Aaron Eastman (Felicia), Kari Eastman and Julian Edwards; great-grandchildren: Leif and Hansel Eastman and Madalynn and Olivia Eastman; cousin: Jim Bates; Susie Schumacher and other family, including many nieces, nephews, beloved neighbors and countless friends.
Her life is a reminder for all to live fully with the strong will and compassion she exemplified. To brighten the lives of others and share joys as well as burdens. To create a memorable life through example, not excuses. To be honest, kind and fair in your endeavors and to let the character of your life speak for you.
Lee may be gone from this world, but she lives in our hearts forever. In lieu of flowers or gifts, Lee's family requests donations be made to the Boise Rescue Mission to honor her memory.
Arrangements are under the direction of Accent Funeral Home, Meridian. Remembrances may be left for Lee's family at www.AccentFuneral.com
