Obituary

Ila Vivian Keniston, 98, of Rumney, NH passed away on November 25, 2019 at Golden View in Meredith, after a period of declining health.

She was born on June 19, 1921 at home on East Rumney Road in Rumney, NH to Ivan and Vivian (Kenneson) Bixby. She was the second of seven children, born and raised in Rumney and lived there her whole life. She graduated from Plymouth High School, married Raymond Keniston on April 19, 1940 and raised their four children.

Ila was a 4-H teacher of sewing and cooking, a Grange member for over 65 years, a member of the Fireman’s Auxiliary and Earnest Worker’s. She worked on the voting checklist for many years and volunteered at Quincy Bog for 12 years. Before moving to Golden View, she loved cooking, sewing, fishing and camping, and did her own baking along with her housework. She loved her push lawn mower, brush cutter and both her flower and vegetable gardens.

Ila was a proud recipient of the Boston Cane Award and was the Grand Marshall of the Rumney Old Home Day Parade for three years.
Ila was predeceased by her parents, brothers Tige (Bernard), Red (Harold) and Leon, and sister Bernice Winsor, husband Raymond Sr., son Raymond Jr. and Grandson Robbie Clark.

Ila is survived by her sister, Janice Hutt of Virginia, her brother Merle of Canaan, daughters, Nancy and her companion, Harold Avery, Sally and Kelly and her husband Len Anderson. She also leaves behind 7 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren and 7 great-great grandchildren. Burial and a celebration of life will take place in the spring.

To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that soon God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4) May this promise give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathies.
