Ila Jean Dillabough of Medicine Hat, beloved wife of the late Ted Dillabough, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 5, 2023, at the age of 93 years, enveloped in the love of her family. She leaves to cherish her memory her son Bruce (Rosalind) of Acadia Valley, daughter, Terry Scheuerman of Medicine Hat, son, Brian (Rita) of Cochrane; her grandchildren and great grandchildren, Aaron (Deena) (Kaitlyn, Jordanna and Avery), Chad (Deanna) (Jada and Warner), Bryce (April) (Branlin and Evalin), Walker (Holly) (Emara and Wrenly), Jenn (Brad), Kendra (Dean) (Presily and Juls), Tracie (Jason) (Sydney, Crosby, Addy, Lauren and Ally), Curtis (Lesley), (Mannix), Marla (Lyndon) (Sanna), Breanne (Jeremy) (Chloe, Mason and Vonn), Garret (Larissa) (West and Clay); and one brother Bill Anderson (Lynn) (MacKenzie) of Spruce Grove. Ila and Ted married on November 11, 1948, in Bethune, Saskatchewan moving to Acadia Valley in 1953. Upon their retirement in 1986 they moved off the farm to live in Kelowna and one final move to Medicine Hat in 1990 to spend their remaining retirement years.
Mom moved to Chinook Village in 2013. We can not say enough about the the sense of community and caring she felt while living there as a result of all her neighbors and friends she was in the company of. She was very engaged with, and attached to the staff there which she was very fond of, some of whom have kept closely in contact with her up until her passing. The positive atmosphere they created and the mix of friendliness, kindness, and humor they brought with them in their daily interactions with her will not be forgotten.
She also very much appreciated the excellent care the many staff members at St.Josephs and River Ridge provided her over the past 16 months.
A private family interment service will take place at the Acadia Valley Cemetery with Bonnie Burke officiating.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the CNIB (Canadian Institute for the Blind) or a charity of your choice.
