Kyllo, Christie

Christie Marie (Barr) Kyllo passed away at Fort Macleod Extendicare on Dec. 25, 2002, in her 95th year.
The first of the Barr family to be born in Alberta to Delmar and Ellen Barr was Christie Marie at the Ardenville homestead on Sept. 20, 1908. Christie received her schooling at Ardenville.
She married Arthur Kyllo from Pincher Creek in 1926 and from this union two sons, Roy and Gordon, were born. Art and Christie worked in the Macleod area before moving to Pleasant Valley and then to manage the Buckhorn Guest Ranch.
Then, wanting a place of their own, they bought the home farm on Chipman Creek, where they resided until retiring to Pincher Creek. Christie worked at the Pincher Creek post office, in Waterton Lakes, and for several years at the Bunny Bar.
Christie was a dedicated member of the Rebekah Lodge and both she and Art received their 50-year jewels.
Failing health brought Christie back to Fort Macleod to Extendicare in 1994 where she resided until her passing.
Christie was the “Bell of the Ball” at the 10th Barr reunion in August of 2002.
Christie is survived by her daughter-in-law Audrey Kyllo; eight grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren, 12 great great grandchildren; her brother-in-law Pat Schnarr and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her husband of 67 years, Arthur Kyllo, in 1993; her sons Roy in 1998 and Gordie in 2001; her daughter-in-law Pat (Roy) in 1988; her parents Delmar in 1916 and Ellen in 1961; and siblings William in 1911, Elvin in 1918, Anna Davis in 1973, Bertha Cofell in 1975, Glen in 1985, Victor in 1989, Edith Driver in 1990, Ella Stockton in 1995, Kathleen Townsend in 1997, and Jenny Schnarr in 2000.
The family wish to extend a special thank you to the devoted staff at Fort Macleod Extendicare for their caring and compassion. Thank you also to Christie’s many friends and relatives who faithfully visited her.
