She was preceded in death by her husband Glen and infant son Greg Michael Delehoy and Sister Joann (Swauger) Robinson. Ida Lou’s early years were spent ranching with her parents in the Livermore area. She also spent time in the Tarryall and the Northern Colorado Redstone Canyon area. She graduated from Cache La Poudre high school where she met her husband to be Glen. They were married April 15, 1948 and were married for 69 years. They made their home and raised their children on the same lane where Glen was born. Ida Lou was a homemaker and stayed home to help raise her children until they reached their teen years. Ida Lou felt privileged to have worked in the Vocational Education Department at Colorado State University, where she made lifelong friendships among the faculty and staff, and influenced the lives of many of the students.

Most importantly she cherished time with her family and grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
