Ocean Pines - Ida J. Bredehorst, 72, of Ocean Pines, died Friday, July 6, 2018 at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury.

She was born August 28, 1945 in Paterson, New Jersey, a daughter of the late Placid Jerome Baron and Mildred Louise (Sewell) Baron.

On September 16, 1967 Ida married Roger and together they celebrated 50 years of marriage last August. Through the years they moved from New Jersey to Chicago to Connecticut to South Jersey and settling in Ocean Pines, and she cherished friendships made at each stop. She was a wonderful homemaker and an excellent cook. She was an active member of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Berlin where she served on the altar guild and volunteered for many years at the Church Mouse Thrift Shop at St. Paul's. She enjoyed giving back to her community doing volunteer work when able and was instrumental in starting the thrift shop at Atlantic General Hospital. Teaming up with her husband, she played golf with the Ocean Resorts Thursday Scramble group. She loved the beach and taking day trips to Assateague to see the wild ponies and spend time outdoors. As you always said to us, we say to you "Miss you already."

She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Roger Bredehorst; a daughter, Toni Thompson and husband, Joe; a grandson, J.T. Thompson; sister, C.B. Wisniewski and husband, Bob and sister, Mary Berry; a niece, Lisa Wisniewski; a nephew, Erick Berry and wife, Debbie; and a great niece, Maddie. She is also survived by the entire Bredehorst Clan and a host of Ocean Pines friends.

A memorial service to honor Ida's life will be held on Thursday, July 12, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 3 Church Street, Berlin, MD 21811. Following the services the family would like to invite everyone to join them at the Atlantic Hotel for food and fellowship.
