Obituary for IDA MAE CHASE

Ida Mae Chase was born May 4, 1944 to the late John Harrison Garner and Hilda Howard in Calvert County, Maryland. She transitioned to her new life on February 23, 2013 at Southern Maryland Hospital in Clinton, Md. Ida Mae received her education in the public school system of Calvert County. On September 18, 1970 she was united in holy matrimony to Howard Lee Chase. They were perfect in their love for each other and Howard loved her in his words, “the best that he could”. During their 42 years of marriage they raised 5 children together; Michael, Timothy, Paul, Stanton, and Katina. They also played a big part in raising 2 of her older grand children, Michael & Kortinai. During her early years of employment Ida Mae worked for Roland Cleaners, and then became head chef at the Frying Pan restaurant. She then went on to perform housekeeping work for several clients until she became ill in November of 2012. Because of her integrity, and sweet spirit Ida Mae was more than just a housekeeper to all her clients, she became family to them. In the church Ida Mae was known for her huge singing voice and the heart of God that every song she sang flowed from. She was a devout member of the Eastern Jubilees and the Co-founder of the Mason Jubilees, a youth choir she founded with her mother. If she made a commitment to sing at another church she always kept her word and would show up even if she had to sing alone or with 1 or 2 faithful members. When you visited her home she would most often be heard humming or singing a song of praise (most often there was a baby in the midst somewhere). She loved children. Ida Mae left a smile in the heart of everyone she came in contact with. She loved God and her church family dearly. If she ever got on your case it would always be because she loved you and she believed Gods word. That’s why singing was her gift from God to bless the heart of many. Ida Mae is survived by her loving husband Howard Chase, 5 sons, Michael Gross (Myrtle), Howard Moore, Timothy Harrod (Natonja), Paul, and Stanton Chase (Julie); 2 daughters Katina Black (Dameon), and Sharon Moore; 21 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren; 2 brothers, Owen and Herbert (Emmaline); and adopted brother George Johnson; 2 sister in-laws Annie Chew and Arlene Howard, and 1 brother in-law Anthony Parker; 3 uncles, James (Louise), Richard, and Charles (Patricia); 3 aunts: Beatrice, Delores and Mary Buck; 5 godchildren, Andre, Latinia, Desmond, Rashard, and Lauryn; 4 devoted friends, Audrey Jones, Toreno Wortham, Louise Savoy, and Faynette Johnson; 2 very dedicated nieces Anna Gross & Connie Howard; and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and friends.
