Ida Eleck

Ida Eleck worked alongside her husband who was a big band musician and band director who had the idea of opening a music store.  Ida was thrilled with the idea as it gave her more time to be with her husband.  They called it Royalton Music Center, which is located in North Royalton, Ohio. She soon ran the store while he was on the road and focused on the bookkeeping.  Their daughter took over the business as Ida continued to focus on the books and watching her granddaughter, who grew up in the business.  The company expanded to a second store and was able to cover a larger school program base.  When Ida’s husband and later her daughter passed away, she trained her granddaughter to help her run the store.
