Ida grew up in Elma Township.  She was a loving sister of ten siblings. Ida was past president of the Ladies Legion Auxiliary and donating her time to the legion festivities. Ida enjoyed knitting for charities, visiting the shut-ins, especially spending time with family, babysitting her grandchildren, preparing meals for friends and family, hockey games, skating carnivals and also playing cards with dear friends Ron & Betty Attwell and Roger & Isobel Brimacombe.  Her favourite time of year being St. Patrick’s Day when she celebrated her birthday with green beer, green drinks, green potatoes, green corn and also dying anyone’s hair green who would dare.
