Ila Chewning of Campbellsville, daughter of the late Savannah Rollo Martin and Nella Patton Martin, was born April 23, 1930 in the Lemmon's Bend Community of Taylor County.
She professed faith in Jesus Christ and was a member of Woodlawn Christian Church where she was a faithful member of the Willing Workers Sunday School Class.
Ila worked as a set sleeve operator twenty-nine years before retiring from Fruit of the Loom to become a full-time grandma. Prior to her Fruit of the Loom career, she worked for General Telephone and the Corner Drug Store.
She loved canning, quilting, embroidering, crafts, gardening and taking care of her flowers, especially her beautiful roses. She enjoyed cooking and spoiling family and friends with favorite country style meals and desserts. Favorite activities also included playing Rook and Skip-Bo. As long as family and friends were involved, she would spend countless hours assisting and entertaining. Her family was her number one priority and real joy.

Two step-children: Don Chewning of Texas and Linda Cross of Tennessee; four grandchildren: Tiffany Pickett and husband, Ben, Nikki Wilson and husband, Justin and Matthew Chewning of Nicholasville and John Chewning and fiance, RaeAnn Stafford of Campbellsville; five great-grandchildren: Bo, Cooper and Millie James Pickett and Landon and Emilee Wilson of Nicholasville; one sister, Neva Richerson and husband, Max of Campbellsville; one brother-in-law, David Gupton of Campbellsville; several nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends.
