For those of us left behind to mourn her passing, we are assured that she now rests in the arms of her savior, and we can only imagine the “Home-Going Celebration” that surely took place that Friday morning.

Ila will be remembered as a gifted pianist. She always considered her musical ability to be a “God given” talent bestowed upon her, and she was so faithful in using her gift to glorify His name. She was a faithful pianist for the Pleasant View Church of the Nazarene for over 60 years. There is no way to estimate just how many weddings, funerals, and graduation programs she participated in over the years. So many people were touched by her music. Surely she has earned a special crown in heaven for her faithfulness in sharing her gift.

Ila was also a teacher in the elementary school system for over 20 years. Many of her students remember her with warm affection. She worked tirelessly to provide her students with a quality education while being the kind of role model that could inspire them to meet the challenges of the future with confidence.
