Beloved daughter, wife, mother, sister, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend Sharon "Lee" Kaylor of Eagle, Idaho, passed away May 23, 2013.
The Guest Book is expired.
Born December 14, 1940, in Klamath Falls, Ore., to Floyd and Lydia Gentry, she spent her childhood in Klamath Falls, meeting the love of her life G. Lee Kaylor in high school. They married Nov. 8, 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, Colo., 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 nonprofit organizations, especially veterans' 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 and 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.
