She was united in marriage to her beloved husband, Willmon Kilpatrick, on December 26. 1940 in Steele, Alabama. The couple made their home in Detroit until her husband was drafted into the military service and then they traveled the life of a soldier to many homes, finally settling in Roseville in 1949. In the early years she worked in the Roseville Community School System where her children grew up. She was known as Mama K to everyone and was a loyal longtime member of the Bethany Baptist Church. Mama K loved to Crochet and made many afghans for family and friends. She dedicated her self to the love of her family and will always be remembered for her love of cooking. She was known for her southern fried chicken and biscuits. She was loved by all and a remarkable person who will be deeply missed.

Chris was such a fun person to hang out with whether in person or on the phone. She helped my Mom, Marilyn, through some lonely times over the past twenty years. They both loved rooting for the Detroit Tigers, especially during the Verlander years. A special memory for me was when Mom and I visited with Chris at her home, and she shared several stories about her mischievous childhood years. She always told us we are family, and I know how special that is to Chris. She lived a full life filled with love for others. We will miss her and all rejoice knowing she is with God in Heaven. 💜✝️

So sad that Mama K has left us. She was always smiling and the life of every party!. She loved her family deeply and they always took first place in her life. John and I always looked forward to the times we were included in the family gatherings, birthdays, holidays, etc. She was like a second mom to John as his mom and Mama K were best friends for 60 years. For sure, I know she will be missed by all who knew her, but we all rejoice that she is now re-united with those who preceded her in death and that she so dearly loved. R.I.P. Mama K. We will continue to love and pray for those of your beloved family who are left here to continue your legacy.

Mama K. will always be remembered for her love. She had a way of making you feel that you were the most important person in the room. She will be missed. But we rejoice that she is with her Savior and all those she loved who got to heaven before her. You are in my heart and in my prayers. Love, Ruth Ann
