Last updated 3/9/2018 at 8:43pm

Ida Mae Sebring, of Bonsall, passed peacefully, surrounded by family, at the age of 102, February 15, 2018. She was born Ida Mae Thomas in Hodginville, Kentucky, May 10, 1915, to a large family, and described herself as a "babe in arms" when the family relocated to Bloomington, Illinois.

She married LeRoy Oliver Sebring and raised her family in Bloomington, and then moved to California in the early 1950's. During her life she held various jobs, as a tool crib operator at an aircraft company, a toy assembler at Mattel Toys, a store clerk, and a caregiver at various locations.

Ida loved music, and the world came to a halt when her beloved Lawrence Welk show would come on the TV. She could name all of the performers on the show, and could give a biography of each one. She also liked talking with family about Jesus and the second coming. She was convinced we were in the "end times".

She is survived by daughter Dolores Alexander and son Larry Sebring, both of the San Diego area, along with a son, Roy, in Texas. She also leaves behind many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.

Private services were held by her family soon after her passing. Her final resting place is at Greenwood Memorial Park, San Diego.
