    She was born on Dec. 23, 1922, in Ilion, daughter of the late Eugene and Mabel Moyer Snyder. A lifelong Richfield Springs resident, she was a graduate of Richfield Springs High School. During World War II, Ida did her part by going to California, where she worked in a bomber assembly plant.
    On April 20, 1946, she was united in marriage with Donald W. Berrie in the Church of Christ Uniting, Richfield Springs. They made their home and raised their family in Richfield Springs. In 1974, Mrs. Berrie went to work as a packer for the Duofold Company in Mohawk. She retired in 1982.
    Ida had a strong faith in God and was a member of the Church of Christ Uniting, Richfield Springs. In her leisure time, she enjoyed bowling, reading and working in her vegetable garden. With her husband, Don, she enjoyed a memorable trip to Europe and many other bus trips up and down the East Coast.
    To all who knew her, she was a loving, caring and hopeful person who was happiest when surrounded by her many friends and family, especially her cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be truly missed.
