IDA RACHEL MOSSOP (published on April 11, 2009)

IDA RACHEL MOSSOP (nee MATTHEWS) May 12, 1910 - April 5, 2009 Peacefully, on April 5, 2009, Ida went to be with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ at the age of 98. The eldest daughter of Benjamin and Hattie Matthews, Ida is survived by her children Edwin Mossop (Luella), David Mossop (Grace), Sylvia Zubert; her brother Earl Matthews; and by her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Ida is predeceased by her husband Harold Mossop; brothers Asa, Carl, Dale and Neil Matthews and her sister, Edith MacMillan. Ida was born and raised in Otterburne, Manitoba, where she worked on her family's farm and helped to raise her younger brothers and sister after their mother passed away at a young age. From there she moved to Winnipeg where she married her husband Harold and raised their three children in St. Vital. To help support her brothers and sister, Ida worked at the T. Eaton Company and later in life as a healthcare aide at St. Amant Centre. She enjoyed reading, knitting, gardening, swimming, camping, birding and nature. Ida loved children. She taught Sunday school and was a Brownie leader for many years. Known as a generous woman by those close to her, Ida was deeply loved for her positive outlook, plucky attitude, unwavering faith and her random acts of kindness. Ida's family wishes to thank the warm and supportive staff at Misericordia Place and Calvary Place Personal Care Home for the excellent care she received. A memorial service will take place on Wednesday, June 3rd at 11:00 a.m. at Calvary Place Personal Care Home, 1325 Erin Street with Pastor Bruce Logan officiating. A luncheon and time of fellowship will follow. Interment will take place at St. Vital Cemetery.
