The Dahlonega Nugget
April 24, 2013

The death on April 20, 2013 of a true lady, mother, companion and friend, Ida Lee Cheves, 87 of Dahlonega, occurred peacefully at her residence.

Born September 22, 1925 to the late Anton F. Solms, Sr. and Annie Lee (Woods) Solms, she was born and raised in Savannah, GA. After attending public schools in Savannah, she matriculated from The University of Georgia with a BBA degree. She was a member of Phi Mu Fraternity and was involved in campus activities, one of which was being a freshman sports reporter for The Red and Black campus paper. Ida Lee had her social clubs, volunteered with the Red Cross during the Korean Conflict and most significantly was a Pink Lady at Northside Hospital for 37 years.

She was known as a caring lady who could be counted on to "be there". Each morning began with a bright "Good Mawning" and a little hug. Then several times a day when we were getting ready to do something, the little singing phrase "off we go into the wild blue yonder, climbing high into the sky" would come out. Hope both of us will go that way. She was predeceased by all of her siblings, Tony, Jr., James, Selma, William and Walter.

Miss Ida Lee married James P. Cheves, Jr. of Atlanta in 1949, where they lived and raised three children.

Interment services were held April 23, 2013 at Arlington Memorial Park. Rev. Maitland Laforce officiated.
