I am so happy to have been blessed with not only a wonderful Aunt but with a unique person who was my confidant, my venting board and a second Mom. We spoke frequently reminisced about the old days. We laughed sometimes felt sad about her siblings especially my Mom As a young girl, I spent all my summers in Auburn with my grandparents and Aunt Ida who was young and fiesty. She had loads of friends and she would hang out with them,however, when I was there, grandma would insist. if you are going out, you take Marie with you. She would argue with her but at the end Grandma always won so I was her little side kick. At the end of the summer she was happy to see me go home.. My memories of Aunt Ida will always be those of fun, happy, caring for people. She was always there for everyone. She loved hard,she cared deeply and was loved back by all. When she passed suddenly, I shed a lot of tears, but now, when she comes into my thoughts I dont shed a tear, I just smile. SHE IS HOME WITH HER LOVE ONES and I know she is still looking after the loved ones she left behind. Aunt Ida RIP until we meet again.

Rarely have I met anyone who served so selflessly. I can hear God saying "This is my beloved, in whom I'm well-pleased." Rest peacefully, dear Ida. Linda Lenzmeier

ted and I worked with Ida many times volunteering and became dear friends, she worked and served constantly while enduring so much pain. they were a great couple and add a great dog, you got a little heaven. I know where she is and right now, she is organizing the kitchen and setting up brunch. My prayers are with her dear husband and I pray his memories help him heal, and just know she is watching over all of you and
she can walk each day in heaven without pain. rest in peace my friend, AS YOU WERE A GREAT SERVANT.

I recall my week spent at Uncle Bob and Aunt Ida’s home in Liverpool. It was down a hill and not far from the canal.

Bobby and I tried to catch some fish ~ but no luck. All I caught was a cold.

True to her form Aunt Ida diagnosed my condition and proscribed bedrest with humidification with Vick’s Vaporub.
It did the trick and I recovered!

No grass ever grew under her feet and for every problem Aunt Ida had a solution.

We take solace in her well lived life and share our love with Uncle Bob and all of our cousins as we bless her soul and pray to be as good and selfless as Aunt Ida.

Requiescat In Pace
