Ida Viola Muth (1917-2012)

September 1, 1917-February 12, 2012
Ida was a warm and generous soul. Her kindness, humor and ability to give wholeheartedly, were vastly appreciated and currently mourned by her family and all who knew her.
She and her late husband, Garold R. Muth enjoyed many wonderful years living in what her numerous grandchildren &
great-grandchildren describe as a paradise, on top of a mountain in Piru Canyon.
They enjoyed fishing, traveling in their custom travel home, hosting the many that found such solace and joy in their fine company and adored the love of their blended family. She was a fantastic cook and won raves for her home-cured olives, venison jerky & preserves. Always quick to praise those she loved, a compassionate mother, doting grandmother & great grandmother, with the penchant to feed you, no matter what the hour.
Her hospitality remains unmatched in our families.
Her last years were spent in Ojai, fighting a valiant fight against illness, under the loving care of many. She passed peacefully in her sleep.
"And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance." Kahlil Gibran
We imagine a slow dance, with the kindhearted man who preceded her in death and she missed so much.
Ida is preceded in death by her son, Albert Carter & daughter Kathleen Franks. Survived by her brother, Leonard Preciado, Piru, her children, Rosemarie DeLano, Bakersfield. Elsie & Bob Simonson, Ojai, Daryl & Vickie Muth, Ojai, Garold M. & Mandy Muth, Bakersfield , Kirk & Marilyn Muth, Bakersfield and the grandchildren, great grandchildren & great- great grandchildren, too numerous to list.
Graveside funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Feb. 18, at the Piru Cemetery, 3580 Center Road, Piru. Pastor Ben Unseth will officiate.
