Name of creator
Ida was born in 1883 and became the bride of Avery Winchell in 1901 and taken to a homestead in South Dakota. In 1904 they moved to an area 20 miles south of Ainsworth. On May7, 1913, they and another couple came north and after 6 weeks on the Edson Trail squatted on land one mile north of Spirit River. They lived in a sod shack for the winter and hauled logs for a house and barn. After several small houses, in 1926 they built a big house. In 1940, the couple sold their farm to Jessie and Kester Lillico and built a house in Spirit River. Avery passed away in 1943 in Spirit River and Ida remained there and became "Granny" to the Lillico children, worked in her garden and was very active in the United Church.
