My entire Family and I want to extend our most sincere Condolences on the loss of your beloved wife, mother, and Grandmother.
Ida was a radiant light in our lives and we loved every visit we had with her. The twinkle in her eyes when she laughed was seen clearly with each chuckle. I loved her laugh... and the bantering between her and Sig was something I will never forget. I can hear Sig saying “ iiiiiiiiiiiiidah” each time they were teasing each other. They always made me laugh, and I absolutely loved being in their company. They were my favourite couple of all my Parents’ friends.
I’m going to miss you Ida, as will my parents and the rest of my family.
God Bless you Ida...
Love from Melanie, Mike, Heidi and Werner Steiner. ❤️
