Born in Eunice, Louisiana. She was married to Bennet Guillory who preceded her in death in 1992. Ida has lived in Sonoma County for many decades. She was an active member in her church, St. Elizabeth Seton, in Rohnert Park. Her family was her pride and joy and cherished spending time with them - she truly was the matriarch of the family. She was a healer and had tremendous faith. Whenever her family felt the need for prayers they would tell "MaMa". She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She is survived by her children: Mary Vallot, Tony Guillory, Velma Guillory, Ben Guillory and his wife Ghen, 12 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, seven great-great grandchildren, her sister Theresa Harris, her lifelong friend Priscilla Saigon, numerous nieces throughout the country, as well as many extended family members. A memorial web page has been developed on Facebook for "Ida Mae Guillory". The family would like to express their thanks and gratitude to Kaiser Hospital of Santa Rosa as well as to Memorial Hospice for all their kindness, care and support. A visitation will be held on Friday June 8, from 9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. at St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, 4595 Snyder Lane, Rohnert Park, CA. A Rosary and Funeral Mass will follow at 11:00 a.m. to celebrate Ida's life. Committal services will be Saturday at Holy Cross Catholic Cemetery, Colma at 12:00 noon.
