My deepest condolences to Don and the family. Ila May will be remembered for her kind heart and gentle ways. My mother, Brenda Payne spoke fondly of working with her at Walmart. Such a terrible loss, my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Take care.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Ila May brought many smiles to my face and heart. She was a frequent visitor to The Market Garden when I owned it Many times she would just drop in for a chat or duck under cover of the porch if she was caught in the rain when she was out walking. She was a beautiful lady with a beautiful heart, and her kindness and smile will be missed, but always remembered. Condolences to all of her family.

So very sad to hear, I didn't know IIa May well. I used to make deliveries at Walmart and when every I had to deal with Hershey was always so very pleasant. My deepest condolences to you and your family. She was a very nice lady.
