During our school day encounters, Ida was who we would turn to receive an answer to any difficulties that we had, and yes Ida was our resource(s). It seems like such an unforgettable obituary to read of someone that our group was so close to during our schooling years, now, time to grieve for such a wonderful and caring person. To the family it's a horrible experience, may she be blessed from within the spirits from above, what a shame. Left with only the how, when, and why??

Dear Steph , Alan, Mark and Families, I am heartbroken over the loss of your Mom. Throughout high school, hanging out at your home---between Jerry and Ida, there would be a ton of laughs and warmth. Your mom was so fiercely proud of her kids, grandkids and all of your accomplishments. May her wonderful spirit give you strength during this difficult time. With love, Jen

Dear Zelnicker family, I was so saddened to read of Ida’s passing. My ( second) cousin Jerry and Ida were always a welcome addition to my parent’s table and family occasions. Ida and I reconnected after her move to Toronto and I loved her joyful Facebook posts. Memories of your parents will shine through these dark times. With sympathy, Nancy

Dear Mark and family, My deepest condolences to you all. Ida was a wonderful mother, bubbie and friend. Her love and devotion to you all was known to us all. Her children, grandchildren were her life. We would sit and she would love to tell stories of the day Mark was born . A BIG baby she would say, smiling and laughing. Over 10lbs she would say! Alan sharing the same birthday as Mark. How she felt so bad that Mark would forever share his birthday with his baby brother. Then her and Jerry's miracle little baby girl came into the world. She would love to talk about furniture, Shermag, maj, golf, and...food! etc. Ida's heart was huge and all she wanted was for her family to be healthy and happy. One of my favourite memories with Ida is when she and I cuddled in bed and watched movies in her condo in CSL. Then she and I would go through her closet and she would want to give me her 'schmatas'.. And, all the times she would say "I shouldn't eat that! " But we always would eat it!! She fought until the end. Ida is now with Jerry, her first love. Her last love. May her memory forever be a blessing to you all who knew her. RIP now sweet Ida. xox
