Dorothy Illian (Hild)


Dorothy (Hild) Illian, 89, died April 15, 2014 at Guardian Angel Homes in Lewiston, Idaho, after an extended illness.

A loving mother and registered nurse, Dorothy devoted much of her life to raising her three daughters with beloved husband Fred A. Illian, who preceded her in death in 1995. She is survived by daughters Marcia Illian Banta of Lewiston, Melanie Illian Lewis of Cleveland, and Michele Illian Maines of Boise; by grandchildren Stephanie Hebert of San Diego, and Emma and Leland Lewis of Cleveland and by three great grandchildren, Jackson, Dylan and Karly Hebert.

Dorothy inspired and shared with her daughters a lifelong love of reading, laughing, and celebration of family. She believed in the goodness of people. She was cherished by friends across the country and by her loving family, who attempt to pay her endless kindnesses forward. Born in Des Moines, Iowa, to Isabel (Wittbecker) and Roy J. Hild, she lived in Rockford, Illinois for 41 years, before moving to Lewiston in 1987. She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers Roy William and Hubert and sisters Maxine, Frances and Vivian.

Our thanks to the care providers at Timber House, Guardian Angel for their care and compassion during Mom's final days and hours.
