Leach, Ila  
Ila Leach Kanab, Utah Ila Millett Leach was born to Horatio and Lula Millett on August 3, 1921 in Kanab, Utah where she was raised and lived all her life. She was the 4th child of five children, Ray Millett, Bert Millett, Clive Millett and Sister Genieve Millett Bluejacket (Edward) all deceased. Ila and her family never had a lot and all lived through the Great Depression. But they did have their love and each other, and music. All the siblings took after their mother who played by ear and was always asked to play the zither or any instrument for all the dances and special occasions. The girls both played the piano and the boy's played guitar. They could all sing and so they spent hours singing and playing and had so much fun together. Ila met and fell head over heels in love with Trevor. She always said he was the most handsome guy. Even better looking than any movie star. They ran off to Vegas in her aunt's Model T and $25.00 in his pocket and got married November 15, 1941. Their marriage was blessed with four children. Eileen (WenDell) Judd, deceased, Kenneth Bert, deceased, Diane Kay McAllister (Keith), and Pauline Alice "Polly' White. Mom helped and supported Trevor and his father with their goat business and later in the cattle business. Early in their marriage, and pregnant, she and Trevor lived in a tent at the ranch. She cooked for the men working the goats. Being pregnant and with morning sickness, she said she would cook an egg, go outside and throw up, then come back in and cook another. Later when all the kids came along and they went into the cattle business she would follow along behind in the truck with a hot lunch when they moved the cattle by horseback from the Coyote Range to Bald Knoll every spring and fall. We all loved riding and helping do that. Mom was always a good cook and when the kids grew up and were in school she would cook three hot meals a day because we all walked home from school for lunch then back to school. Today families are counseled to eat meals together as a family to form a closeness. If we didn't eat together at the table every meal, we didn't eat. When we came home from school she always had fresh filled tarts or something we all liked in the cupboard. She always worried about everyone having enough to eat. Mother had a sweet disposition and always saw the best in everyone. She had a great sense of humor, even showing her humor until the end. Her sister Geneive and Eva Heaton were her best friends and they all had mutual friends they enjoyed together. Geneive was Mom's soul mate. They were more than friends or sisters all their lives. If you saw one of them, you would see the other. As couples Aunt Geneive and Uncle Blue, Trevor and Ila spent years visiting family and friends every Sunday at the care center. They were always laughing, traveling, going to dinner or just getting a coke together. Mom loved having everyone together at the trailer at the ranch. We all loved not only being there and the good food, but also making the fun memories. Mom's world was Dad, her family, her home, the children, grandchildren and great grand children. She is so loved. She always kept her home and yard immaculate and beautiful. Mother was a member of the LDS church and had a love for her Father in Heaven. Mom was so lonely for Trevor and her son Ken after losing both in the last year. She passed away quietly January 23, 2015, at her home with her two daughters at her side. She is so happy to be with her true love, friends and family that have gone before. She will always be in our hearts and remembered as our sweet, beautiful, and loving Mom. She was just the cutest and very best mom and grandma ever. We all love her and will miss her so much. Funeral services will be Saturday, January 1, 2015, at the Kanab Stake Center. Viewing will be from 11:45 am to 12:45 pm with services starting at 1:00 pm. Funeral arrangements are by Mosdell Mortuary.

He returned to the US and attend some school in Bingham, Utah where he knew only Greek. By the time he attended West High School in Salt Lake City, he was fluent in both Greek and English, and "Determined to speak perfect English with no trace of an accent," he would tell later. Nick married the love of his life, Laura Edrie Dalton January 31, 1942 in Ely, Nevada. After becoming members of the LDS Church, they were sealed in the temple in Alberta, Canada. Nick served valiantly in the US Army, surviving two historical battles that changed the tides toward victory in World War II. Returning again, he would serve as an MP in the Korean War. He was highly decorated, earned two silver stars and four bronze stars. In WWII he was a member of E company, 26th Infantry Regiment, who in Normandy stormed ashore on "Omaha" Beach on "D-Day", 6 June 1944. The "Big Red One" pushed Germany eastward, Nick led his men through Battle of the Bulge, 16 December 1944 through 25 January 1945. Finally, leading a prominent role as Staff Sergeant, he and his men cleared houses in bitter urban fighting in Aachen. He was wounded shortly thereafter, in the Battle of Hurtgen Forest, tripping a German booby-trap that caused an explosion which wounded him and resulted in the Purple Heart. Nick was an accomplished businessman and entrepreneur. After the war he strategically developed and launched what would become a large supermarket distribution company in Southern California. He sold this business to move to Utah so Laura could be by her mom and started over, eventually working up to the position of Vice President of Public Relations for Zions Bank in St. George. Nick was involved in many community organizations including Director of the Chamber of Commerce for St. George and Hurricane, President of the Washington County American Cancer Society and was on the board of directors of the State American Institute of Banking.

He was also once chosen the "Total Citizen for the State of Utah.' Nick served in three different bishoprics for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and has the honor of being the first person of Greek descent to be called to the office of bishop. Nick also cherished serving as a counselor in the Southern California Mission Presidency. One of the most treasured times of his life was as Bishop of the Buena Park Ward in California. He would recall many times throughout his life the relationships, experiences and friendships that were maintained and retold up to the day he passed. Bowling was among the most enjoyable activities of his golden years. The leagues they played in and the resulting friendships have been a source of great joy to both he and Laura.
