Ilda was noted for her wonderful Italian cooking, keen mind, sense of humour, her love of travelling, going to the casino and watching the Greyhounds.  She now joins her many dear friends in Heaven where the Rumoli Board is set to be played. Above all things, she loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren so much and was extremely proud of each one.
