Ila Mildred (Klepper) Robinson, 93, of Redondo Beach CA died peacefully on August 21, 2014. Ila was born to James Ernest and Ella May (Wollen) Klepper on April 11, 1921 in Henry, Nebraska and was the 7th of 10 children. On December 16, 1940 she married Edmund E. Robinson and in 1955 moved to Redondo Beach, California. She held a number of jobs over the years but most importantly she was the family's continual caring mother figure and led by humble example. Ila was a long time member of the Chapel by the Sea Church in Redondo Beach. Ila loved watching the LA Dodgers and traveling throughout the United States with her husband Edmund as well as with her seven sisters, collectively known as the Gallivantin' Grannys or 8 sassy sisters without their misters. She is survived by three children (Linda, Karen and Dave), nine grandchildren, twenty-four great grandchildren and one great great grandchild. She will be greatly missed by family and friends. Following is a poem Ila loved: When I come to the end of the road And when the sun has set for me I want no rites in a gloom filled room Why cry for a soul set free Miss me a little – but not too long And not with your head bowed low Remember the love that we once shared Miss me – but let me go For this is a journey we all must take And each must go alone It's all apart of the Master's plan A step on the road to home When you are lonely and sick at heart Go to the friends we know And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds Miss me – but let me go Author Unknown
