Ilene Mae Agnes Skidmore
Ilene Mae Agnes Skidmore went to be with the Lord on Sunday, Nov. 24, 2013, at the blessed age of 91 years, 6 months, and 13 days. Ilene was born on May 11, 1922, in Marion, Texas, to Edwin Fred Kircher, a farmer, and Carolyn “Carrie” Thekla Mergele Kircher, both German descendants that came from West Prussia, migrated from the Gulf and settled in the Marion and New Braunfels areas. As a child, Ilene helped her mother decorate the Christmas tree with popcorn and candles, a German tradition. She loved playing with a bandy hen and dressed it in doll clothes her mother made. When she was through with it, she would put the hen back outside on its nest so it could lay eggs. . . .
