I am so sorry I am late in finding this information of Ila's passing! I do want to share my appreciation and respect for this lady who was a mentor and great supporter of mine as a teen 4-Her through my college career as I worked summers at the Clermont County, Ohio Extension office. I so appreciated her knowledge, patience, and wit as well as her helpful job references as I began my career. She was one of the chaperones on our 4-H Citizenship Shortcourse to Wash DC the year I participated and turned 16. She arranged for a surprise birthday cake and celebration while in DC in the absence of my family!! The last time I saw her was at my wedding, she was a dear person I will always remember fondly!

To the Coe family. I am so sorry for your loss. I don't think I ever met her but she has a special family. So that had to have made her special. Again I am so sorry. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you.Jane Binnion Stanford
