|Kimbraly Diane Carrillo|
Kimbraly Diane Carrillo, born January 7, 1958, passed away at Odessa Medical center on December 26, 2019, after a long struggle with illness. Her beloved husband, Santos, who was the love of her life, passed earlier this year. Kim was reunited with Santos in the glory of heaven after one last celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus.
Kim's passions in life, other than her beloved husband, were her love for animals, tracing her family history, and collecting. From an early age, Kim couldn’t tolerate an animal suffering, neglected, lost or abused. “Truly I tell you, whatever you do for one of the least of these my brethren, you have done into me”. Kim believed all animals were God’s creatures and deserved to be loved and cared for.
Kim spent years tracing her family history, retrieving records and documenting the family lineage. As we found out when we set her affairs in order, she collected volumes of records, newspaper clippings and pages of written notes about the family history.
Kim’s idea of collecting didn’t mean that she was looking for expensive items to covet. She collected things that meant something special to her. We still don’t have a full accounting of the total number of photo albums she created. This simple act shows how much Kim valued her family. The world would be a better place if we all treated animals and family members the way that Kim treated hers.
Those left to cherish her love and memory are her mother, June Florence Glenn of Odessa, TX; brothers Guy Allen of Phoenix, AZ and Kris Baxter of Austin, TX; sister DeAnn Kiser of Austin, TX; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
Kim loved Sherwood Baptist Church and its members. The church community reached out to Santos and Kim, made them a part of their family and helped them immensely through difficult times.
Kim is preceded in death by her husband, Santos Carrillo, her sister Pam, grandparents Oscar and Deno Veach, father Ralph Allen, and step-father Lloyd Glenn.
A celebration of life will be held at Sherwood Baptist Church, 505 E 42nd St., Odessa, TX 79762 on January 1, 2020 at 11:00 am. In lieu of flowers, please direct any donations to Sherwood Baptist Church.
