Obituary for Ila Lee Massengill

On Wednesday morning, June 5, 2019, Ila Lee Massengill, 87, moved to her Heavenly home. Ila was a godly woman who loved the Lord and her family and set an example for her family that will lead them all their lives.

Ila was born in Wayne County on March 21, 1932 to the late Archie and Ruth Snipes Holland. She was married to the late Harold Massengill, Sr. For over 20 years, she worked as an inspector with General Electric in Goldsboro. Ila loved Faith Free Will Baptist Church and was a dedicated and faithful servant her entire life. Her warmth, generosity and kind spirit were well known and cherished by those she encountered throughout her life. Her contagious smile and outgoing personality broke down barriers and opened doors to an exciting and fulfilled life.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. at Faith Free Will Baptist Church followed by a service to celebrate her life at 2:00 p.m. in the sanctuary with Rev. Dann Patrick and Rev. Christian Powell officiating. Interment will be in Wayne Memorial Park.

Ila is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Terry and Danny Mitchell of Goldsboro; son, Eddie Massengill and Bobbie Wiggins of Goldsboro; six grandchildren, Clint Mitchell, Brandy Graham (Billy), Justin Mitchell, Trey Massengill, Shelby Wiggins and Blake Massengill; and two great-grandchildren, Dalton and Addison Graham.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Myrtle Lawhorne of Wilmington and brother, Bennett Holland.
