Ida L. Nybo, age 86, of Miles City passed away on Monday, June 15, 2015 at the Cottonwood Care Home in Miles City.
Ida L. Nybo, the 2nd born of Chris & Clara Stathamin-Fredricksen, was born January 16, 1929 in Ainsworth, NE. Together with her family; brothers Doug & Donald, and sisters Helen & Patsy they moved to Miles City, MT in 1948.
Although Ida was raised in town, she fell in love with a strong cowboy; Ralph Nybo. They married in 1951 and spent their lives living happily on the Nybo family ranch. She quickly became a true ranch woman who worked hard and enjoyed all aspects of ranching. She was proud of their registered Polled Herefords but her passion was racing their quarter horses. Over many successful years of racing they proudly decorated their mantle with trophies won around the State.
Ida enjoyed bowling, selling Mary Kay, keeping up on the latest fashions, but mostly she enjoyed time spent with her friends and family. Ida was a dedicated wife, enabling Ralph to remain at home for many years after suffering a stroke.
She is survived by her brother Donald, many nieces and nephews, and “my-boy Bryan”.
A celebration of Ida’s life will be held at 10:00 a.m. on August 13, 2015 at the Parlor, 1806 Mains Street with a luncheon to follow. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting: www.stevensonandsons.com.
