Ida was a stern and loving person. For 30 years she worked for Bell Atlantic in Newark, NJ as one of the company's first female engineers. It was no surprise that Ida excelled at everything she put her mind towards accomplishing. She was truly devoted to her family.
This was illustrated by the cakes, macaroni & cheese and countless family favorites she made for the past 60 plus years. Ida also had a creative side and a love for learning. Sewing, crocheting and challenging puzzles were her principal pastime activities. She is deeply loved and will be truly missed.
