2/3/1894-11/9/1960 Idamay Slater Kacena

Idamay taught math at Des Moines City College when very few women even went to college. After she married William Joseph Kacena Sr. she home-schooled her 2 boys when they were up at the homestead in Canada. She camped and fished and had a great garden. This valiant lady, my grandmother, lived life fully and was an inspiration to me spiritually and academically. 6/94
