Terjeson, Ida J.
The Guest Book is expired.
Ida was born in New York City on June 1 , 1911. She was one of six children of Joseph and Mary Disanza. Ida and her siblings (Morris, Margaret, Vincent, Rose and Edward) were raised and schooled in the primarily Italian and Scandinavian neighborhood of Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, N.Y. After graduating from Bay Ridge High School she worked for a short time as a telephone operator. Ida, along with her sisters, often went dancing and it was at one of these events that she met and fell in love with her future husband Arthur B. Terjeson. Together Ida and Arthur raised three children, Arthur Jr., Robert and Raymond in their home in Bay Ridge. She was a proud, caring and loving Mother who was an inspiration to all her children. Ida and Arthur would often go dancing and to Broadway shows and they had a very happy, exciting and rewarding life together. In 1971, Ida and her family moved to West Nyack, New York. Again she fell in love but this time with her new beautiful home. She loved walking around the property, doing her gardening and swimming everyday during the summer until she was 95 years old.
She is predeceased by her eldest son Arthur Jr. (1979), husband Arthur Sr. (1990), son Robert (2013) and all her siblings. She is survived by her youngest son Raymond, his wife Thelma and their son Jonathan (her grandson) and her granddaughter Wendy (daughter of Robert) and several nieces and nephews. Everyone who met Ida fell in love with her instantly. She was a kind, generous, caring, loving, religious and family oriented woman who will be missed immensely. Heaven has gotten another angel and Ida is happy once again with all her loved ones who have gone before her.
