Obituary

Lynda (Kilp) Williams, 74, passed away unexpectedly at home in Orting, WA, on January 5, 2023. Lynda was born March 4, 1948, in Kansas City, Missouri, to Carl and Janiece Kilp. She grew up in the Seattle suburb of White Center and was named Miss Washington in 1967 and then competed in the Miss America Pageant. She married her husband, Bob Williams in 1971. They just celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary in December!

In the 70s Bob and Lynda were a highly popular singing duo with a large following. They were known as “Bob Williams & Lynda Standell.” They performed throughout the United States, from Alaska to New Orleans. They recorded three record albums and made two TV specials; one of which, “The Northwest Sings,” won an Emmy Award.

Lynda was kind and loving, full of energy and life. Her Christian faith supported and guided her. She was the kindest person you’d ever meet. She also loved to decorate her home. She is surely in heaven singing with the angels and offering her decorating skills to anyone who asks.

Lynda was the second of four siblings: Leta Edwards, Loren Kilp, and Lorrie Keys. She is survived by her husband, Bob, and her two children, Matthew Williams, and Melanie Williams, as well as her 11-year-old grandson, Mason Williams.

Family, friends, and other invited guests will gather for a celebration of Lynda's life on February 18, 2023, in Puyallup.  If you would like to join in the celebration, please send R.S.V.P. to (Lorrie Kilp-Keys) seattlecat@protonmail.com no later than February 7, 2023, to receive the location and time and be added to the guest list.
