Ida passed away peacefully at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, B.C. She was born in Fielding, Saskatchewan.

Her family eventually settled on the family farm on Lickman Road, Chilliwack, B.C. around 1926. Ida had a happy life on the farm exploring and climbing Chilliwack Mountain. Along came Harley, the love of her life. They were married in December 1935 and made their home in Ladner. Harley was an avid fisherman and fished commercially until his retirement.

They enjoyed many years travelling in their motor home in Canada and the southern U.S. where they made many friends. Ida and Harley were married for 55 years. Ida was predeceased by her husband Harley, her parents Walter and Hattie, her brothers Ronald and Ray. She is survived by her sister-in-law Dorothy Carman, nephews Garry Carman (Mariette), Brian Carman (Noeleen), Jim Carman (Brenda), nieces Noreen Sterling (Barry), Betty-Anne Hicks (Ross), Joan Bateman and Laurie Miller. Thanks to Victoria Heights Staff, Doctor Clarke, Doctor D. Zamfir, nurses and staff of 6 north, Mariette and Garry for all the care.
