Not sure what to say?

My sincere condolences to your family for the loss of your love one. May the God of comfort be with you during this sad occasion and may his loving words at John 6:40 console your heart.

Idella was one of my buddies and a
heck of a majorette RIP, lady

I always looked forward to seeing Idella at church. I didn't go that often but Idella always greeted me like we were the best of friends. We shared a love of purple. I would tease her and say I was going to loose weight so I could steal her clothes.

Idella was a beautiful, happy soul. It was always a joy to visit with her. Please accept our sympathy for your loss.'

Prayers for the Family.

Ms. Idella worked with my mom, (Connie Ruyle) at Rudolph's in Jerseyville. Every time I saw her, she always greeted me with a hug and a smile. Her words of wisdom, smile and hugs will be missed. My heart goes out for the family. Prayers and love. Heaven got the most beautiful angel back in their arms.

I will always remember Idella when she attended our church. She was always loving and kind. She will be missed. Deepest sympathy to her family, loved ones and friends.
