Ida’s son John would have helped his wife Daphne write the entry for Ida in Daphne’s “Oram Family Saga” compiled in the 1960s.
Married James Oram in 1915 and mother of Arthur Talbot Oram, John Anderson Oram, and Daphne Blake Oram Ida is very artistic and musical. She played the violin and enjoyed being part of a trio who met regularly at Belle Vue House in the 1930’s. Her main relaxation is painting – firstly water colours and later oils (go here for a small gallery of her pictures). Her rockery and alpine plants were only part of her love of gardening and James built a fine greenhouse onto the garage, in the mid 1930’s.
Ida was active in infant welfare work between the wars and supported James in many of his interests – in particular as Mayoress in Coronation Year of 1937. Her jolly sisters and brother were most popular aunts and uncle.
