Daryl and Nada Kilgore 50th wedding anniversary

Daryl and Nada (Goskesen) Kilgore were married on May 8, 1970, at the Little Brown Church in Nashua, Iowa. Daryl has been retired from both the U.S. Air Force with 21 years of service and the U.S. Civil Service with 13 years of service. Nada worked many jobs over the years, from mini mart clerk to accounting clerk, ending with a retirement from Hormel Foods Corporation in 2010.

During their 50-year marriage, they lived in North Dakota, North Carolina, Germany for a four-year tour, Texas, where Daryl retired from the Air Force, California, where Daryl retired from civil service, Missouri and Minnesota. They now reside in Tucson, Arizona.

Until the recent pandemic, Daryl was bowling four leagues in Tucson. He has achieved a high game score of 299 and is still looking for the big 300. He enjoys the sunny climate in Tucson and does not miss shoveling snow.  He likes to say, “You don’t have to shovel sunshine!”

Nada spends her time enjoying Tucson and her hand crafts, knitting and crocheting for family and friends as well as charitable organizations. She loves doing her crafts with companion Buddy (their two-year-old Chihuahua) in her lap. She also has a crafting shop that stocks knitting, crochet and embroidery supplies and does bU.S.iness on-line at grandmasknitcrochet.com.

Their much loved posterity includes daughter Charity (Brad) Wagoner of Spring, Texas and her children Hannah of Albert Lea, Minnesota and Grace in Spring Texas; her grand-daughter, Temperance, in Albert Lea. Though Daryl and Nada’s son, William, left this life in 2005, he left behind two children — Kahlilah Kilgore lives in Denver, Colorado, and William JD Kilgore, who lives in North Carolina. Two grand-daughters, Ashley (Violet) Kilgore and Katie (Michael) Weber, who live in Tucson and great-grandson Max (Katie’s and Michael’s son) brings joy to their lives with every meeting.

BecaU.S.e of the pandemic, no celebration or travel will be undertaken, but this couple wants to let everyone know they are healthy, loving life, and doing well in Arizona.  They can be found at 9881 E. Amaroso Lane, Tucson, AZ 85748.
