Alida dedicated many years as an administrative assistant for IBM, and prior to that, she served as a bookkeeper for various other companies and charitable organizations.

Alida had a deep passion for cross-stitching and was a master at creating beautiful, intricate works of art that she shared with family and friends.

She had a green thumb and took pride in her garden, nurturing plants and flowers that bloomed under her care. A talented cook, Alida delighted in preparing delicious meals for her loved ones, always ensuring that gatherings were full of good food, laughter, and warmth.
