So so sorry to hear this. Ida was a wonderful, caring woman who loved her children more than anything. I was so intrigued by her many stories of her own art gallery. Very, very interesting woman. This is one more step in her fascinating journey through life. She will be greatly missed.

I am a childhood friend of Ida’s children. Ida welcomed us into her house. With great patience there was often ten plus kids in her house. Where that patience came from, as a grown man now, I will never know. And we are thankful for her patience because I think I experienced the “no you didn’t just do that" stare once or maybe five times (ha) but thankfully that was directed at Butch or Scott. Anyhow I am rambling and shedding tears as we children know we were loved and safe in HER house and I am forever grateful. Ms. Rado, may you find comfort in your higher place.

Ida expressed her beautiful and never ending love in welcoming my family and I into her home with open arms and she forever changed my life. We will never forget the impact and the sense of security she and Bob provided. We are forever thankful! In speaking for my mother, Mary Haskel (Wielgus,) words alone can never express my sympathy and the many different beautiful memories we enjoyed together. We had so many good, fun and memorable times together. You were a sister to me and I will miss you dearly. Rest In Peace sweet Ida Mae
