It is with sad hearts but many wonderful memories that we write the obituary of our loving wife, mother,
grandmother and sister.  Atha Riter Ison of Kingdom Come, was born on May 15, 1927 to the late Dewey
and Minalee Ison.  On October 20, 1945, Atha married her companion of over 56 wonderful years, Komos
Ison.  God blessed the couple with three wonderful children: Lonnie Dale Ison, Linda Gail Cornett, Donna
Denise Holbrook and one infant daughter, Lela Mae Ison, who preceded Atha in death in 1949.  Atha was the
proud grandmother of four grandsons, one granddaughter, and six great-grandchildren.  She also leaves
behind three brothers, William McKinley Ison, Lenville Ison, and Doyle Ison, and one sister, Bettina Ison.  
Also preceding her in death were two brothers, Deamer and Wayne Ison.  Atha passed away on March 27,
2002, leaving a lifetime of precious memories and lasting impressions on all of those who knew her.
