Ida was a homemaker whose keen sense of humor and beautiful smile would always light up a room. Loving and endearing, she prided herself on being accepting and helpful to everyone she came to know, especially within her own family. She also liked to shop, play bingo and watch “The Price Is Right”. She was the rock upon which her family stood, and her mentoring and loving presence will be greatly missed.
