IONA MILLER COLLINGS

IONA MILLER COLLINGS 4/1/1921 - 6/28/2014 On June 28, 2014 Iona Collings, of Hesperia, passed away peacefully at the age of 93. She is survived by her husband of 18 yrs, Mack Collings, a son Michael Miller, and daughter Judith Wickman (Richard). Iona was born in Paris, Ontario Canada. In 1958 Iona, her first husband (of 41 yrs) Mike Miller (preceded in death in 1996), and 2 children moved to California and became U.S. citizens. In 1981 Iona and Mike retired to Hesperia. Active in the community, a full member in the Hesperia Elks, secretary in the Hesperia Leisure League, and donor to the American Lung Association. She will be remembered by family and friends for her wonderful smile and sharp sense of humor. Iona was a great cook, love to entertain, and dance with Mack at the Elks on Friday nights. Quilting was a passion of hers, as was watching golf on television...the PGA has lost their most dedicated fan, and Tiger Woods his biggest fan and sharpest critic. Iona is also survived by her grandson Max, granddaughters Morgan Miller and Jessica Pineda (Mack), and many wonderful nieces, nephews, and great-nieces and great-nephews all across Canada and California who all loved their Aunt Onie. A big thank you to Inland Valley Hospice, Bears Private Home Care, and All caring Residential Care for your care and support for Iona and her family. The Memorial Service and luncheon will be on Saturday, July 12, 2014, 11:00am-2:00pm at the B.P.O. Elks Lodge, 9202 E. Ave., Hesperia.
