Iloria Chin Foo Smith, age 85 formerly of Kingston (Jamaica), passed away on Monday, February 26, 2018. She was born to the late Charlie Chin Foo and Nerissa Withe on August 28, 1932. Iloria was married twice. Her first marriage with Rudolph Miller(deceased) yielded her only child Joan. Rudolph gave Iloria the infamous nickname "Millie". Her second marriage was to Sidney Smith(deceased).
Iloria started her working life as a cashier at a local grocery store (which had no register). From a young age Iloria was very good at math, which stemmed from working in her father's dry goods store. After her cashier job, Iloria managed a police station cafeteria. She eventually was able to acquire her own cafeteria business. When she migrated to the US in the 80's, she was able to take a few courses and became a Nurse's Aide. Although it was a whole new world, Iloria never missed a beat. Iloria had an uncanny ability to adapt to whatever environment she was placed in.
Iloria had a solution for every ailment. She was a firm believer in herbs and natural remedies. She took very good care of her family. Family and friends were Iloria's biggest passion. She was the life of every gathering. She loved to cook and entertain and frequently made big family meals. She also loved being home but was never idle. She was very crafty and was skilled in embroidery, crocheting, sewing, and large puzzles. She really made wherever she was home.
Iloria is survived by her daughter Joan, and her two grandchildren, Marlon and Gabriela. She also leaves behind many caring friends. The family wishes to thank all those who are in attendance as well as anyone who cared for Iloria .
