We have fond memories of spending time around the campfire with Ilona and Ed, many times with their family and friends there too. Great conversations reminiscing about past and present events and times. We will remember Ilona always in our hearts, her wit, laugh and the many great stories she shared with us!

Ilona's mother and my father were first cousins. She was someone I looked up to growing up. I remember her being a cheerleader at Marlborough High School. She will be missed by so many people, family and friends. My deepest sympathy to Eddie and her children and grandchildren.

No matter where...the Colrain farm, the camp on Stone Pond, or at Great Memere’s in Marlborough...we have such fond family memories of our visits with Eddie and Ilona. Always so genuinely interested in what was going on in our lives, Ilona’s gentle nature and sweet little voice we will fondly remember. For 40+ years, she never missed sending us their Christmas wishes. We missed that this year...😔
Rest In peace, Ilona.
Thinking of and sending our condolences to Eddie and family,
Mike & Doni

So Sorry to hear of the passing of Ilona, she was such a sweet person and always thought that Ed and her were a great couple.
I remember when her and Ed would come to Seabrook Beach to visit with the children as they always were around same age as mine. Ilona was always a little shy but had that cute little laugh.
Will never forget her and my heart goes out to Ed and the family

Love Nancy and Charlie

Every visit our family made to New Hampshire over the years inevitably ended with a visit to Ed and Ilona's for coffee and a chat. They were always hospitable and in every way supportive of us all. We are eternally grateful for Ed and Ilona's willingness to look in on Meme and Grandpa when we were unable to be there.

We all send our deepest love and sympathy to Ed and all the family.
Pat, John, Jesse, Johanna, Brittany and Ben
