Billie Allgood, 82, of Beacon passed away Sunday evening, January 2, 2022, at the Mahaska Health Hospice Serenity House. Billie Gwen Allgood, daughter of Raymond Herbert and Madeline Bernice (Quarton) Hurst, was born April 13, 1939, in Oskaloosa, Iowa.

Billie was raised in Oskaloosa and was a 1957 graduate of Oskaloosa High School.

Following her education, she was employed at Dean’s Cigar Store. As a young single lady in Oskaloosa, she met and fell in love with a young sailor, Ernest Allgood, home on leave from the Navy. On March 1, 1965, they married at First Christian Church in Oskaloosa and made their home in Beacon. Billie was a full-time homemaker and mother after their marriage.

Billie attended Beacon United Methodist Church and, most recently, Faith Community Church in Eddyville. Her love of God was evident through her devotion to Bible studies with friends and her many visits to nursing home residents. She loved her family dearly and will be remembered as a loving mother and grandmother.
