“Till we meet again sweet momma”\nMom gently closed her eyes and started a new journey on May 13, 2009 at the age of 98. Ila was born on December 5, 1910 in Ogden, Utah to Cloey Jane Whitaker and Isaac W. Finn.\nIla was a loving person that put others welfare before her own. Her whole life was one of sacrifice and love for her family.\nHer door was always open and her family and friends always knew there was a good meal; a genuine smile and a warm hug waiting in her home.\nShortly after moving to Murray in 1949 Ila went to work at Heckels Shoe Store, in downtown Murray, after several years the shoe store closed its doors for the last time. This was a very sad time for Ila. She loved working with Harold Kelly and the other employees. She missed the many friends she had made over the years. Ila was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Serving in numerous callings, she especially loved serving the sisters of her ward. While serving as Relief Society President she made many long lasting friendships that she treasures to this day. Ila served three Church missions. The first a proselyting mission in 1956 with her husband James L. Waters. The other two missions were served with her beloved Woody at the Granite Record Vault and as a Ward Missionary.\nIla is survived by two daughters Eunice (Veto) Montrone, Betty Swensen, and three step-children that she loved as her own, Terri Moran, Kaysville, UT; Sande Caldwell, Portland, OR; Boyd (Linda) Smith, Sunset, UT, 7 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.\nShe is preceded in death by her eternal companion Woody Smith, daughter Lawona Shaul, granddaughter Linda Montrone, great-grandson Christopher Woods, Parents, Sisters, Jenny Mc Intire, Susan Creech and brothers Wallace Finn and John Finn.\nThe family would like to express their appreciation to the nurses, caregivers, and staff at Silverado Senior Care Center for the loving and tender care given to our mom and the kindness shown to the family.\nFuneral services Tuesday, May 19, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. at Murray 12th Ward (363 E Vine St.) with a viewing Monday from 6-7:30 p.m. at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 S State St., Murray and Tuesday from 10-10:45 a.m. at the church.
