Ida (Ruppert - Wood) Mitchell
My husband Howard and me
James Wood and I were married 41 1/2 years. He passed away in May 1999. We had two children. Dale James and Sandra Jean, both are married and have two boys each. Dale lives in Scottsdale, AZ and is the partner in Blackwood Systems. He wrote a memory management package that is marketed under the name of MOMMI. Sandra is a sales representative for a moving company. Each have two boys. 

In June 2000, I remarried. My husband is Howard E. Mitchell. He attended U.City High School. He has two children, Eric and Desiree. They have three boys between them. That gives us a total of seven grandsons. We can't buy a girl. Which is funny since I have a large doll collection.

I retired in 2000. We had a Villa built in O'fallon and just enjoy life. I am President of our Home Owners Association. We love to travel every chance we get. I am on a "Bear" team at church. I sew bears to be given away to children when they have to go to the St. Joseph's Emergency Room in St. Charles. I also paint faces for another bear team. 

All in all, life is wonderful and God has blessed us.
