Ida Low Kemper died Thursday, August 30, 2018 at her residence. She was born on October 3, 1929 in Cardston, Alberta Canada. She started life in the hamlet of New Dayton, Alberta, Canada as the 8th of 9 children, daughter of William Royden and Ethel Marie Hansen Low.

She was well traveled, and lived in Magrath Alberta, Fort Collins Colorado, Perth Australia, Laurel Maryland, Islamabad Pakistan, Twin Falls Idaho, and finally in Oshkosh for the last 21 years.
