Dallas Keogh Obituary, Death – Dallas Keogh, who lived in Collierville, Tennessee, fought cancer valiantly and for a long time. On February 27, 2013, he died away at his house in peace after having fought the disease for so long. Kim was well-known for her friendly and infectious smile, her genuine laugh, her selfless character, and the passion she shown toward her volunteer activities. She exemplified both grace and persistence – the perfect combination for a lady. James Milburn Coward, Jr. and Willie Mae Robertson Coward both passed away before their daughter Kim was born. Kim is named after her late parents.
The only members of her family to survive her passing were her wonderful daughter Kelsey and her dedicated husband of 26 years, Curt. In addition, she is survived by her sister, Liz Collier, who lives in Starkville, Mississippi; her brother, Jimmy (Shelia), who also lives in Starkville, Mississippi; as well as seven nieces and four nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents. Kim has just recently resigned from her position as Membership Director at the Collierville Chamber of Commerce, where she supervised the growth of membership and the establishment of tens of thousands of contacts.
She was an essential part of the Chancel Choir and the Bell Choir at the Collierville Christian Church, where she also served as the Chair of the Worship Committee and held the position of Diaconate. Because of her breathtakingly beautiful voice and remarkable musical ability, she quickly became an essential component of both groups. Kim had a passion for helping others and was a driving force behind many philanthropic efforts in Collierville. These efforts include TWIGS of Le Bonheur, serving on the board of the Collierville Literacy Council and as its president in 2011, serving on the board of Leadership Collierville and as its secretary, and serving as the vice president of Youth Leadership Collierville. Kim also had a heart for service and was a driving force behind many philanthropic efforts in Collierville.
