Born in Shickshinny, Ila was a graduate of Harrison Memorial High School and later attended Nesbitt Nursing School. She chose to leave her nursing studies to assist her father with his business, later meeting and marrying her husband Joseph.

She is survived by her sister-in-law Norma Benscoter and family. Her sons, John (Francie) and Robert, daughter Jeanne (Bradley), grandchildren, Ian (Casey), Jessica, Robert Jr., Anthony, Kimberly and great grandson Kai.
She will be missed by all.
