Betty Jean Killbuck of Magnolia, Texas, passed away on March 26, 2015 at age 69 of esophageal cancer for which she refused treatment (surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation) she considered worse than the disease. She was born to W.P. and Jimmie Herms on April 25, 1945 and preceded in death by them and her only sibling, Peden W. Herms (deceased 9/3/84). Her survivors include: husband since Nov. 10, 1975, Robert B. Killbuck; daughter, Lisa Michelle Killbuck; niece, nephew, and sister-in-law (April, Kevin, and Rhonda) of Brooklyn, New York, Washington, DC, and Austin, Tx; best friends, Tina McDougald and Katy Allen. Betty worked until retirement in 2000. She stood out, since youth, as an accomplished pianist and organist, loved learning, creating, and taking classes, and fulfilled her life-long dream of pursuing oil painting the last 15 years of her life. Betty has requested cremation and no service and that her ashes be spread on the upper West Coast in the redwood forest, her favorite place in the world. She has known people who have no services and just fade out gracefully and that made her decision. She also hopes her friends will donate to someone in need, not a large charity. There are people everywhere every day you see who need help. She always said to ask yourself what your passions or main reasons for living are—such as love, beauty, and learning. Then go out and fulfill those passions before it's too late. Don't get too busy with other things so that you squeeze out your main passions and always make someone else's life better, even if it's just once a week. Live your Soul, not your role!
