Cooking With Coya creator Lyncoya Ilion finds ease and comfort in kitchen

Most of us have seasoned the comfort and ease a meal presents for the duration of the mourning system.

For Brown Deer resident Lyncoya Ilion, meals was a lifeline through a tragic time and a coping system that led to a second job and connected her to a supportive group of enthusiasts. When her 19-calendar year-previous son, Michael Terrell, was killed in December 2019, Ilion turned to foods, but she was not ingesting by means of grief, she was controlling it via cooking.

“My son was not committing a criminal offense or everything like that, but he was shot,” Ilion recalled.  

“I was suicidal. I have three grownup children and grandchildren, much too, but I just didn’t see generating it to the future day. Cooking gave me a thing to preoccupy my thoughts. Michael cherished my cooking, so it helped me experience nearer to him, and it stored my brain off of a good deal of poor views,” Ilion recalled.
