My condolences to the family. I first met Ida when she brought the twins to preschool at the church. Then I very much enjoyed her piano playing at Eastern Star. She was a wonderful lady and it was quite evident she loved her family..
It is great to have so many good memories of her.

I am sorry to her of Ida Gertrude's passing. I met her at the Suites when I went to visit my aunt Betty Reed. They were friends at the time and Aunt Betty talked a lot about her. She was very kind to me. My prayers are with you in your time of loss.
