Memories Timeline


  1. As I sit and think of my Aunt Ida, I think of the loving and caring person that she was. I was fortunate to have her as my godmother and I was truly honored. I will miss her greatly, but I happy knowing that she is next to my Uncle Patsy, her “Pat”. I love you Aunt Ida and I will miss you very much. Your loving niece, Mary

  2. Although I didn’t know Ida for very long, I found her to be a very kind, generous and loving person. She will missed greatly by her friends in Panama City, Florida.

  3. Dear Puzzole and Oliver Family: I called Helen and extended our deepest sympathy at the death of our lovely Ida–We will always remembr her smiling face and her pleasant personality==she was always interested in everyone and their family–I will miss seeing her–Jean please have our deepest sympathy as she and I would always talk about our children and grandchildren–I feel that after Patsy passed she was truly lost as they were always so close–I will pray for all the family and ask that the Lord will keep all of you in his loving care–We are so sorry that we will not be able to show our respect in person because we are leaving Friday for Indiana as it is our grandaughter’s l3th birthday and she feels it is special–a teenager-but you have our deepest sympathy and I will keep you in our prayers and see you when we get back–Love and prayers–Jim and Mary Rose Spano

  4. I want to express my deepest sorrow at the loss of my Aunt Ida. Even though we know that she is in a much better place, the sadness of lose to our family is great. In the past 14 months, we as a family have come together more then our share for the passing of our loved ones. It has caused us to become closer, more loving and appreciative of each other, and a serenity that God is gathering His children to a beautiful life with Him. Aunt Ida, you will be missed. However, Uncle Patsy has his “I” back with him and I know he is smiling! Much love to all of my family and my prayers are with each of you at this time. Even though I am not there physically, I am there with you spiritually. We are all in God’s hands and that is all we need to get by these sorrowful days. Much love. Jeannette O.

  5. We send our love and prayers to you Patsy Jo and Jeannie, and all our family. This is again a very hard time for our family.The only consoling part is that we know she is at peace and where she wants to be, with her loving husband. She is very happy right now and so is her husband, my Uncle Patsy. They are once again united in love with our loving Heavenly Father and our Brother Jesus Christ. Now all we have to do is support each other on this earth during this sad time for the family. My love, heart felt prayers, and support go to all of you. Once again I wish I could be there. God be with you till we meet again.

  6. To the Puzzuole and Oliver Families, My heart goes out to all of you. Aunt Ida’s life evolved around all of you–her family. In both our written and verbal communications, she spoke of all of you with such sincere love. It is this love that will allow her to live on in your lives, for love never dies. May all of you find strength and comfort in each other as you adjust to this loss in your lives. As you grieve, be patient and gentle with yourselves. God’s Blessings and my prayers, Barbara (Bobbie) Cupper

  7. It seems that the complexities of life all fade away when we realize that the only true purposes of our existance here are to live happy and love completely. I can not think of a more perfect example of this than in our Aunt Ida. Happiness and complete love define the lady that was our Aunt perfectly. Her love for our Lord and the happiness and comfort she found in him was undounbtful. The shear adoration and devotion to her husband, and the love and happiness that they shared not only between them but amounst all of us laid a path for all of us to hope to walk in with our spouses and loved ones. The dedication and unconditional love that she gave to her children rang true time and time again. This reminds us that no matter what the circumstance and no matter where the location a parents love never waivers and overpowers all that exists in our lives. In her Grandchildren and Great Grand Children she exhibited the pride and honor that only a Grandparent can have. The love and happiness that she blessed all of us, her neices and nephews, with will remain a constant reminder of what life and love is. Aunt Ida was simply the definition of what happiness and love in a lifetime should be. In the passing of her worldly lifetime, we weep openly for our loss, but rejoice happily and with all of our love in the reunion of her life partner and husband Patsy Puzzuole and further with her Brother and Sister and loving parents. In reflection, her life was as complete as any human could ever hope to be, and in this realization we ask that God grant her the light that we all yearn for and the love that we all have faith in. Rest in Peace my sweet Aunt Ida. Thank you for all of your kindness! I love you so much and know that you will take care of all of us as you have for so very long.

  8. We had the pleasure of meeting Ida on Christmas Eve 2001 and celebrating this time with Jeanie, Ida, and Jennie. We had a wonderful night of great italian food, stories and laughter. Ida’s stories, by far, were the best. We found her to be a loving mother and grandmother, full of life, love, and happiness. We are so pleased to have met Ida and will have fond memories of her. Jeanie, you are such a wonderful person and a great friend. We feel honored to know you. Please accept our deepest sympathies during this time. Do not hestitate to call on us if you need anything.

  9. Kelly, Raini, and I were honored to meet Ida while she was visiting her daughter and grand-daughter here in Lynn Haven. I cannot recall ever meeting a kinder person than Ida. Her stories were great and her spirit uplifting. She took to our baby Raini like she was her own. She was a wonderful person who showed kindness to everyone and everything. We will miss her smile, laughter, and great stories at our Friday night feasts. Jeanie and Jennie – It sorrowed us to no end hearing the news of Ida’s passing. Please accept our deepest sympathy during this tragic time for you. If there is anything that we can do, please do not hesitate to let us know. God speed to everyone!

  10. My dear friends…we are so sorry to hear of your loss…we got the request from Netta for prayers…we immediately started our prayer chain…be assured that we will continue praying for the family…we are truly sorry and express our deepest sympathy…we love you all…
