Obituary of Ila Mae Owen

Please share a memory of Ila to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

On Monday, January 16, 2023, Ila Mae Owen, loving wife and mother of six children, went home to be with the Lord at the age of 92.

Ila Mae was born on February 11, 1930 in Formosa, Arkansas to Walter and Maude Tipton. She married the love of her life, William Owen and together they had three daughters and three sons.  She was a wonderful and beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother, daughter of God, and friend to many.  She spent her life of service as a homemaker, an escort driver, a farmer, and an auxiliary member of the Disabled American Veterans.  Her life was dedicated to taking care of those that she loved and she freely gave of herself unselfishly every day of her life.  She was a tough and tenacious woman and, while her family was always the central focus of her life, she was capable of accomplishing anything she set her mind to, including gardening, laying cement, sewing, building an addition to her home, killing chickens and possums, nursing animals and children back to health, and much, much more.

Ila Mae was preceded in death by her husband William after 63 years of marriage and four of her children, William, Walter, Danny, and Eloise. She is survived by her daughters Susie and Leona and her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren, many of whom she helped to raise in her own home.  She lived a life of selfless service to everyone around her and was a mother and grandmother not only to her own family but to many friends and neighbors as well. She had a deep and abiding faith in Jesus Christ that sustained her through life's challenges and strengthened her whole family.  She will be missed greatly by her family and loved ones.

Funeral services will be held at 2pm on Friday, January 20th at Green Hill Funeral Home, 400 E Teel Road in Sapulpa, OK.
