Ila Jo York, 86, of Robinson, Texas passed away on Christmas morning, December 25, 2019. Services will be held at 12:00 noon on Saturday, December 28, at Waco Memorial Park Mausoleum.

Ila Jo York (Huffman) was born June 8, 1933 to Francis Marion Huffman and Viola Pearl Huffman in Overton, Texas. Her formative years were spent in Clifton, Texas on a family farm. On November 12, 1952, she married Darrell Louis York, Sr. in Valley Mills, Texas. They went on to share 67 wonderful years of marriage.

“Nan” is survived by her husband Darrell Louis York, Sr.; her children, Sue Walker and husband Robert “Rocky”, Darrell “Buster” Louis York, Jr. and wife Martha, Rhonda York, Clint York and wife Marla; grandchildren, Larna Blanco and husband Samuel, Meredith Redding and husband Cameron, Mason Walker, Benjamin York and wife Payton, Samuel York; great-grandchildren, Brooklin Barber, Jantzen Blanco, Bobby-Jake Redding, Emry Blanco, and Waylon Redding.

Pallbearers will be Darrell “Buster” Louis York, Jr., Clint York, Samuel York, Samuel Blanco, and Cameron Redding.

Jo’s greatest joy in life was taking care of her dear family, to whom she was affectionately known as “Nan.” Whether hosting a large holiday gathering, cheering on a child or grandchild at a school event, or filling up the jars around her house with colorful candy, Nan always spread happiness by supporting and spending time with her loved ones. Jo was passionate about caring for the elderly and spent countless hours volunteering with activities at area nursing homes. She was also a proud supporter of her beloved Baylor Bears.

The family would like to express our gratitude to the doctors and ICU nurses at Ascension Providence for their compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in honor of Ila Jo York to Meals on Wheels Waco, or Friends for Life.
