Ileta Lucille (Myers) Lober- Marsh passed away peacefully in her sleep, Monday, April 8, 2019 at Life Care Center in Plainwell.
She was born January 22, 1926 in Hastings Hill, West Virginia, the daughter of George and Bonnie (Horner) Myers. Ileta grew up in Hastings Hill, Pine Grove and New Martinsville, West Virginia with her four sisters, Anita, Ethel, Leanore and Leah.

Ileta was a devoted loving mother and was happiest when surrounded by family and friends. She had a very long, happy and productive life and lived by her favorite catch phrase “it is what it is.”
