Ida was the sweetest and most loving woman. She was gentle and kind, and left a lasting impression on those she met over the years. She had a love of baking and gardening, and the patience she put into those hobbies was truly remarkable.
She would always wave and blow a kiss and tell us to “be careful”, when saying goodbye. Now it’s our turn to blow her a kiss and send her to the loving arms of the Lord and her husband John, who will be waiting for her to dance together once again. Rest In Peace Mom/Gram. We love you and we will “be careful”…
