Ida Know and Ida n't Care

When I saw this postcard for sale, the front did not interest me …

… but the back — well, here we have a mystery:

A woman named Ida, who appears to have lived in Hobart, who had a niece named Olga Allen — who was she? Wouldn't it be fun to try to find out? is what I said to myself.

I said that because this was back in May, before the really hot, humid weather came, while the lawn and garden were still orderly, before the wasps built all those nests, before the poison ivy shot up among the wildflowers. Now I'm tired, I have a million things to do, I'm too old for this, and I just want to take a nap.

So I leave it up to the internet to solve the mystery.

I think it was probably this woman : Based on her son's obituary :

Her granddaughter left a comment on her Find a Grave. Maybe you could ask her who the mysterious Aunt Ida was.

Sounds like a match for Olga. Thanks!
