Throughout the years, they lived in Friendship, Green Bay and Milwaukee before moving to the Rushford and Winona area in 1978. IdaMae worked various jobs throughout the years including at Lake Center Industries, Riverside Electronics and Semcac Senior Dining where she really found her niche in service to others. She was currently a member of Calvary Baptist church in Winona.

IdaMae’s focus in life was on her family, her church and serving others. She was the most loving, positive, non-judgmental, and faithful person one could have on their side. She was also an avid softball player and bowler for many years and when she could no longer do those activities, she became the biggest sports fan.
