Obituary for Willie "Billie" Farrar

Former Stevens County resident Willie Jean Clement Farrar “Billie”, 89 years old, went Home Sunday, February 12, 2017 in Colorado Springs, Co. She was born August 8, 1927 to Marjorie Eugene Kiser and Albert Wilcox “Dutch” Clement in Bay City, Tx.
September 8, 1945, Billie married the love of her life, Keith Farrar in Long Beach, Ca. She became the mother of two sons, Vance Lee and Gary William.
Billie lived most of her life outside Hugoton on the family farm. She bravely crossed the country on the back of an Indian motorcycle “twice!” with her husband and after their sons were born, the family further explored America in an airplane piloted by Keith. They attended two World’s Fairs and even ventured into Canada. At home, Billie delighted in tending her roses and lilacs, serving her world famous seven-layer salad and loving on any cat who happened by their home.
Mrs. Farrar worked many years for Farm Bureau in Hugoton. She attended the Hugoton United Methodist Church for over six decades. She enjoyed participating in luncheons and other events with the legislative wives during Keith’s years as a state representative. She filled her leisure hours with cooking, sewing, embroidering and reading (especially a good mystery). She and Keith round danced for many years and danced all over the world including on top of the Great Wall of China. The couple also relished their time in South Texas every winter.
Billie is survived by her husband Keith Farrar of Colorado Springs; her sons, Vance Farrar and wife Bobbie of Colorado Springs and Gary Farrar of Kansas City, Mo.; four granddaughters, Lisa Farrar Wellman of Austin, Tx., Jody Farrar of San Francisco, Ca., Summer Farrar of Kansas City, Mo. and Susie Farrar of Seal Rock, Or.; grandson Eric Farrar of Augusta; and six great grandchildren, Alex, Katie, Reagan, Paige, Avery and Harrison.
Join Mrs. Farrar’s family to celebrate Billie’s life at 10:00 a.m. February 22, 2017 at the Hugoton United Methodist Church with Rev. Becky Davidson officiating. Burial will follow at Hugoton Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers the family requests memorials to Pikes Peak Palliative and Hospice Care of Colorado Springs or Pioneer Manor of Hugoton in care of Paul’s Funeral Home-PO Box 236-Hugoton, KS 67951.
