Keula "Kyla" Kilgore, 43, of Asheville, died Saturday, December 19, 2015. A native of Tuscaloosa, AL, she was a daughter of Walter Keuler Kilgore II ("Ky") and Kay Armstrong Kilgore Bone. In addition to her parents, she is survived by siblings Skye Mallory (Michael), Lucas Kilgore, and Katherine Kilgore; nephews Tynan and Clyde Mallory; boyfriend Clay Chambers; and a host of friends in Asheville, New Orleans, and all over the world. Family and friends are invited to join us in honoring the life and light of Keula Francis Kilgore in New Orleans, Louisiana, on January 16, 2016, at 2 p.m. We plan to meet in Washington Square Park (700 block of Frenchman, where Keula used to live), take part in a second line jazz march from the park to the river, then board the ferry and scatter her ashes in the river. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to your favorite charity. Groce Funeral Home on Patton Ave. is assisting the family.
