Ida was born in Mendham, SK., on May 20, 1929, and married Edward on July 5, 1950. They were married 57 years raising their four boys into fine men. Ida was a caring, loving and hard working woman who had a strong faith in her Lord and Savior Jesus. She was humorous and straight forward when she needed to be. Ida kept up on her politics through a watchful eye on current news and events. She loved animals of all kinds, especially cats, dogs and the bush bunnies who visited her yard. She enjoyed time spent in her garden and she was a good cook... no one left her house hungry. Ida was a fabulous farm wife, sister and friend but most importantly, she was a gracious wife and mother who loved her family immensely.
