Ida (and Irv before he passed) welcomed me into their family even though I am Barbara's sister (Bruce's wife). We always had a lot of fun at family gatherings and inevitably Ida and I would be laughing about something. I had a chance to visit her on occasion at The Atrium and later at the Hebrew Home as it's not far from us. We'd spend time attending Saturday service with her there or just chatting. I'm glad we were able to spend time with her before the pandemic. We will miss her and her smile dearly.

Thinking of Bruce/Barbara, Elyse/Tom, Alanna and Ezra. We love you all.

Dear Elyse and Bruce and Family.
Your Mom was a part of our lives for 60+ years. I gave Leslie her engagement ring in your Mom's kitchen in a cake. We saw your Mom every year at Beth Israel during the high holidays. We saw her all the time at the Atrium. Leslie last saw your Mom right before the virus. She was lovely and kind person and will be missed.

Elyse, Bruce and Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a lovely lady. She and my Mom were friends years age, and then in later years she was friends with my Mother In Law. She always talked about her children and grandchildren. I hope your memories help you at this time.

Dear family of Ida Lubich
We have been members of Beth Israel since the early 70’s and had the pleasure of knowing Ida for many years. She was instrumental in our warm feelings of our synagogue. We are sorry that we lost touch in recent years but know that she will be missed by all. Please accept our sincere condolences.

Bruce and Elyse,
I hope you remember me. My late parents, Edward and Phyllis Goldberg were good friends of your parents which go back many years ago. I do remember your mother fondly during my childhood and adulthood. Although I have not seen your mother for many years, I always have many good memories of her and your father. I’m so sorry for your loss. Cherish the memories of your mother in your heart. May G-d comfort you and other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Bruce, Elyse and family,
I knew Ida (and Irv) my entire life. She was always one of my very favorite people in the world. Even as a child, she treated me as an equal, shared herself, her experiences and her wonderful humor with me freely. Ida was always funny and optimistic about the world. She was a very close friend of my parents and aunts and uncles, was part of every major (and minor) family milestone, and contributed her love and attention to us all.
I am so sorry for your loss, and please know that my thoughts are with you all at this difficult time. My husband Ralph and I will truly miss Ida’s kind heart in this world. May her memory be for a blessing always.

To the Lubich Family,
Ida and many of her friends went on a lot of trips with me.
I called her my ''co-chair''---what a delightful lady she was.
Bless your heart, Ida and rest in peace
