This the quiet and informal dignity of this Guestbook inspires me to use these services for my late mother, a sister Smith graduate. Thank you

We remember Ida from our first meeting in 1977, when she admitted our son to Santa Monica First Presbyterian Church Nursery School. She always wore a smile and a pretty dress, as she strode around the school in her white leather tennis shoes. The smile was for everyone who walked through the door, the dress because she was such a lady, and the tennis shoes expedited her movement through the school, which was brisk and purposeful.
She was firm and loving with the children, but she also helped the parents a great deal, too. At our mothers' meetings, she would remind us, “You and your husband were the family unit before children arrived. Remember to keep your bond strong, put your marriage first, and then ensure that your children are well taken care of.” This was great advice from the mother of five who remained married for 58 years.
When Ida retired as director of First Presbyterian Church Nursery School, many of us attended her farewell party. All were grateful to have known this bright, loving woman, and we were happy that she planned to take a well-deserved break.
Now she is at eternal rest, but her good works and the love she shared will live on in the lives of those who were fortunate enough to know her.
Rest in peace, dear Ida.

Ida was an inspiration to all who knew her. We first met in about 1964 when I was applying for admission to Smith College. Her warm welcome continued as we became fellow alums and she led the LA Smith Club in so many ways. The twinkle in her eyes and embracing of all who knew her will remain in our memories. What a special person. (I very much regret being out of town, in Sequoia National Park, for yesterday's services. But I thought of Ida and the family she treasured.)

I first met Ida at a Smith Club function as an incoming freshman with my mother. No matter when I saw her after that, she was always warm and caring,and welcoming, Years later, after my own mother died, Ida would always tell me a funny and warm story about meeting my mother. She knew just what to say make you feel better.

Thank you Ida for your service and gift of self to your family and community. We will miss you.

Ida was a marvel, and I will always remember her and Bill for their generous spirits, intelligence, and joy for living. They were the best examples of how one should try to live.
