BARBARA COULLAHAN KILLGORE

7/22/1928 – 2/18/2018

Barbara passed away peacefully on February 18, 2018 at Overlake Hospital in Bellevue following complications from a fall. Born in Concord, NH, to Agnes and Bernard Coullahan, she was married for 63 years to the love of her life, Chuck. She was a registered nurse, and before retiring to raise her two sons, and care for her own mother, she worked for the Indian Health Service and the VA. She was a beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to many.

Survivors include sons Mark (Teresa) and Brian; three grandchildren, Shannon (David) Mayo, Jason (Samantha) Killgore, and David Killgore; and two great-grandsons, Iron and Miles Mayo.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2018, at 11 AM at St. Louise Catholic Church in Bellevue, with an Irish lunch reception following in the church hall. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations to Arthritis.org.
