Ida was a phenomenal woman, she had a heart of gold. Everyone who met her was lucky to get the chance to know such a great person. She had this beautiful smile that was contagious as soon as you saw her. She was a sweet lady who would help anyone with no questions asked.
Ida positively impacted everyone who was fortunate enough to have been in her life. Ida was a member of Church of Christ, which she devoted her time to our mighty Lord. She worked hard and never gave up her dreams.
