Ida Willems (1899-2001) became a teacher in Saskatchewan at the age of 16. Some of her students were older than her, but they misbehaved – they were there to learn. She married Tony Willems in 1923 and settled in Lumby in 1936. She loved to teach and taught for many years in Lumby. She retired in 1969. One of Ida’s fondest memories was being named “Queen” of the Legion Bi-Centennial (1940-1990) and riding in a horse drawn carriage with Pat Duke who was “King” of the Legion.
