  • Ida was such a wonderful lady. I have nothing but fond memories of her and her typically bubbly personality. She would pinch my cheeks & I would be transported to another time & space:the generation of her and my Father. It is indeed sad to hear of her passing. My sincere condolences and shared mourning.
