What a wonderful and amazing woman! Ila used her gift of music right to the end. She played at the Cancer Center. She played for funerals at MKDFuneral Home. And she always did it with joy, enthusiasm, a ready smile and a good sense of humor. I always admired her for that. She loved her family and they loved her. They always gathered at Ila’s home on Saturday mornings for donuts and coffee. She happily provided the donuts. Well done Ila. Dave Brower
