The ladies of the class formed a group they called “Butlerville Gals of 44” that met monthly.  She enjoyed gardening and was a wonderful cook.

Ida is survived by her son, Jerry (Kathy) Huffman of Butlerville; grandchildren, Andrew Huffman of North Vernon, Matthew (Lisa) Huffman of Columbus, Sarah (Stephen) Campbell of Columbus, Suzanne Spencer and Dan Johnson of Columbus, Kathryn Burton of Columbus, and Elizabeth (Tony) Piazza of Muncie; great-grandchildren, Alicia and Chase Huffman, Olivia and Emma Campbell, Cole Spencer, Caroline Burton, Molly, Maggie and Harrison Piazza, and Danielle Johnson; and one great-great-grandchild, Lauren Campbell.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; one son, James A. Huffman; sisters, Georgia Bruce, Laura Speer, and Cora Perkins; and one brother, Thomas Welch.
