    Aunt Ilene you will be missed by so many people. A lot of people shunned you away in your life, and I am sure now they are regretting it. I so hope you finally found the love that you were looking for. The happiness you desired. I love you and will miss you!!! May God be with the family and friends as we say goodbye.

    To all of Ilene’s family my deepest sympathy goes out to each and everyone of you. When I went to the Nazarene church with her she was always a joy to be around. I was invited out to her trailer a couple of times for dinner. Sitting around the campfire, eating, enjoying each others’ company. And then we got the guitar out and started singing. What fun we had. May she rest in peace. And may you all dwell on the pleasant memories that she brought your way.

    I am so sorry to read about the death of Ilene. I haven’t seen her in awhile but always enjoyed talking to her when I did see her. She was one of them that if she knew you she never failed to acknowledge you. This is a great loss . She loved her family and always told me about her kids. I am so sorry for your loss. May she RIP
