I grew up in the same neighborhood with Illges in Columbus, Georgia where we both attended Clubview Elementary School and Columbus High School. I’ve attached our 5th grade class photo. My condolences to the whole family and what fond memories of Illges. What a great childhood we all had at Clubview and CHS! Illges is on the third row from the bottom and 5th from the left I believe.

Ana & family: I was a CHS classmate of “Illges”, as we knew her. She had the biggest brown eyes & was always smiling! I can’t remember the last time I saw her, so I loved seeing the pictures you shared of her life. May you always carry loving memories in your heart!

Ana and family, this photo tribute of your mother is beautiful. She had the biggest brown eyes that I have ever seen, and the largest smile. We were close friends in high school. Her smile and laugh were contagious. If you were with her, you were happy and having fun. Thank you for all the wonderful pictures you shared with everyone. I am so sorry for your loss.

I was sorry to hear of the passing of "Illges" as we knew her in grammar school at Clubview Elementary, as a neighbor in Hilton Heights, at Columbus High School, and at Emory University. Her death this week or so really hit home as someone I had known, although we did not keep up, all my life. Best to her sisters and her daughter and family.
