  1. Evelyn Kurtz nee Davidson says:

    Ida was my grade one teacher in 1949-50 in Puritan School west of Mendham Sask. My brother Gavin Davidson was in grade two. Ida’s parents lived across the road from our school. What great memories of our simple wonderful farm life linger. I am so sorry to hear of your loss to your family. May our Lord comfort you at this sad time. Evelyn Kurtz
