Obituary for Ida R. Hostrup
Ida Rose Hostrup passed away peacefully on September 24, 2019 at the age of 86. 

Ida is survived by her daughter, Connie (Dennis) McKenzie; three grandchildren, Stephen (Allison) McKenzie, Christa (Justin) Scheider, Angela (Justin) McKenzie; her great-grandson, Jackson Scheider; and her siblings, Betty Schandorff and Bill Schilling. 

Ida was preceded in death by her husband, Donald Hostrup (February 2018) and three children, Doris, Susan and Jonny. 

Ida was born on November 23, 1932 to Tolbert and Delilah Schilling, the youngest of 8 children.  She married Donald Hostrup on December 24, 1950 and they celebrated 67 Christmas Eve Anniversaries together.  Don and Ida farmed for many years west of Frederic, WI, where they raised their daughter, Connie.   

After retirement, Ida and Don moved to a small home just down the road from the farm where they took many trips around the pond with their grandchildren.  They enjoyed traveling the U.S. and Canada, seeing many national parks, and visiting friends and family.  Both avid Horseshoe players, they traveled to and competed in 17 World Tournaments.  

Later on, Don and Ida moved to Trails End Park in Weslaco, Texas to spend 11 warm winters together.  After Don passed, Ida moved back to Wisconsin to be with her sister, Betty and to spend more time with family before her courageous battle with cancer. 

Ida was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.  She loved adding the finishing touches to Don’s woodworking, crocheting, quilting, and watching hummingbirds.  Her family is comforted in the thought that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying love, joy and grace.  The hummingbird spirit reminds us to savor each moment, be playful, optimistic and appreciate the sweetness in life. 

A Visitation is scheduled for Monday, October 7th from 1 to 4:00 p.m. at Rowe Funeral Home in Frederic.
