Celebrating her life, and glad she is now in eternal life. So sorry to Ida’s family, friends, and anyone who had the pleasure of knowing her. I wanted to share one of the group photos from the annual 4th of July picnic. Lots of fun times with her there! She always gave the biggest cheek smooches to me and any friends I brought along. 🙂

So glad you used both of Ida’s middle names. The family story about that is that our folks were too poor to have middle names so they gave their first child two to make up for it. She was a marvelous big sister and we loved her dearly and will miss her greatly.
We share your sorrow but also the joy of her life.
God is good.
Ruth and Jerry Kaphingst

Dear Jim,

I know from past conversations that your faith is the cornerstone of your life. As you grieve her passing you also celebrate her life with you and most importantly the confidence that she now resides with her Lord and Savior. May God bless you and your family with the comfort of His love and the fulfillment of His promise for your mother.
