Ila Beauchamp Tooke Obituary

Ila June Beauchamp Tooke was born in Broken Bow, Oklahoma on April 13, 1933, to Bonnie and Bud Beauchamp. Ila June went to see her Lord on March 7, 2024, in Alamogordo, NM. 

June met the love of her life, James Wimberly Tooke, in Alamogordo, NM at the Red Rooster Cafe and married him in 1955. They lived a joyful 57 years together. She was a lover of beauty and created beauty all around her. She wrote music and poetry, gardened, painted, and quilted. She also cared for her family and cooked amazing meals. June was a deeply religious woman and an active church member. She served her community through home Bible studies and Aglow, and also worked at Vision Broadcasting. 

June was fiercely loyal to her friends and family. Her children remember her as the mom who always supported and protected them. Multiple times June and Jim took people in need into their homes and lives, including their heart-daughter, Trish, who lived with them a year in order to complete high school.
