Ms. Ida McDougald Tribute

     Ms. Ida Rose McDougald was born on February 6, 1956, in Robeson County to Ida
Francis McAllister McDougald and the late Rudolph McDougald. She was the third child of eight
and always looked out for her family. She loved to cook and was an excellent cook, she loved
to laugh and was willing to help anyone in need.
     Ida loved to work. Even when she was on “vacation” she still worked. She began
working at Bonanza, later known as Western Sizzlin’. She then moved to Converse and for five
years worked at both Converse and Kayser-Roth. At Kayser-Roth she worked there twenty
years doing administrative work and then driving forklifts. She then worked at Motel 6 before
beginning to drive fork-lifts for twenty-three years at Smithfield Foods, Tarheel, NC in the
Shipping Department. She enjoyed all her time at work and the benefits it brought her.
She spent her “free time” doing carpentry work and has built and rebuilt six houses, two
from the foundation up, and she was planning to build even more. She was frugal and got only
those things she needed, so that she could provide for her only son and with the help of her
family, especially her sisters, she was able to do just that.
      She attended Robeson County Schools and graduated from Fairgrove High School in
1973. She intended to continue her education and began attending Robeson Technical
Institute, but left school after some time to attend to other responsibilities. Ida departed this
life February 21, 2024, at UNC Southeastern in Lumberton, NC.
      Ida was preceded in death by her father, Rudolph McDougald, and her loving baby sister
Brenda McDougald.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

      She leaves to cherish her memories one son, Samuel McDougald (Mary) of
Lumberton; her mother, Ida F. McDougald of Rowland, NC; two brothers, Wilbert McDougald of
Fairmont, NC, and Andrew McDougald of Greenville, NC; four sisters, Jeanette Stocks, Beatrice
