ILA M. HOSKINS

WESTVILLE – Ila M. Hoskins, 98, of Westville, passed away at 5:05 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, 2013, at Gardenview Manor.

She was born on March 24, 1915, in Jamaica, Ill., the daughter of Howard and Eva (Vest) Comer.

She married the love of her life, Chester Lookingbill, and they enjoyed 19 years together before he passed away in 1950.

Ila is survived by her daughter, Gwen (James) Wilson; 12 grandchildren; and numerous great- and great-great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by three sons, Raymond R. Lookingbill, Ronald E. Lookingbill and William H. Lookingbill; her brothers and sisters.

Ila always enjoyed the spontaneous trip to her favorite fishing spot or a challenging game of euchre. She was adventurous and when she learned of her family’s plan for a rafting trip, she was going and there was no talking her out of it.

Ila enjoyed all of life’s experiences and treasured her children and grandchildren tremendously. She was a beautiful, old-fashioned lady who will be greatly missed.

A graveside service to celebrate the life of Ila Hoskins will begin at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, in Newman Cemetery, with Rev. Andy Lomax officiating. Memorials in Ila’s name may be made to San Xavier Mission. Sunset-Urbas Chapel in Westville assisted the family with arrangements. Please join Ila’s family in sharing memories, photos and video of her life through her Tribute Wall at www.sunsetfuneralhome.com.
