On Tuesday, October 29, 2019, Ilda Rosa Wong, beloved wife and mother of two children, passed away at the age of 71. Ilda was born on November 13, 1947 in Villarrica, Paraguay to Eduarda Silva and Juan Ranoni. She met her husband, David, in Argentina; they married in January, 1981 and raised two children, Gabriela and Nicholas.
Bestowing upon her family an unyielding focus to live a faith-centered life, Ilda was an avid Christian who maintained the faith throughout her 2.5-year battle with brain cancer. After God, she cherished family above all else, enjoyed the company of long-time friends, and always looked for ways to help those in need, family and strangers alike. She was an active member of First Baptist Church of Jackson, had a passion for reading, flower arranging, and enjoyed the tango music of her native Argentina.
Ilda was preceded in death by her mother and father. She is survived by her loving husband, David, two children, two grandchildren, and nine siblings. Visitation will be held on Friday, November 1st, at First Baptist Church of Jackson
