Ila married Erland Jay Davis on August 17, 1940 and celebrated their 70th Wedding Anniversary in 2010. They had two sons and two daughters: David, Steve, Janice and Susie.

They lived in Ridgecrest, CA. for 30 years before they moved to Riverside CA. where they became members of Magnolia Church. Ila loved us all and pointed us to her greatest treasure: Jesus Christ. Ila's legacy is found in 2 Tim. 1:5 which says, "I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also." Looking back on our lives, Ila was God's faithful servant in bringing the gospel to her children, and to her grandchildren, which now lives in each one of us. We have been blessed by her faithfulness and her example. Services will be held Thursday, June 30th at 10AM at Magnolia Church, 8351 Magnolia Ave in Riverside.
