According to the local news reports, Ida intended to spend more time in North America:

Miss Ida Lace of Douglas Isle of Man. the guest of Mrs. Fred Moore. This is the first visit Miss Lace has made to America and she is very favorably impressed with our country and the people, so much so that she contemplates spending a number of years in the states. Wichita Daily Eagle; Wichita, Kansas, July 17, 1908, page 3.

Ida did go back to the Isle of Man for some time. In the 1911 census, she was living in Conchan parish in the island’s main town of Douglas.

In October 1911, she travelled to Canada.

By 1912, she was in Vancouver, living at 1849 Robson Street, and operating a rooming house.

“Misses Anna and Alice Lace, of the Isle of Man, will arrive to-morrow to visit at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. M. Walker and Mrs. A. D. Cain. They have been visiting their sister, Miss Ida Lace, who made many friends during an extended visit she made in Atchison and vicinity a year or two ago. She is conducting a rooming house in Vancouver, B.C. Enroute home from there the Misses Lace visited Mrs. Joe Ayers in Wichita, and will visit Mr. and Mrs. Perce Killey in Horton, as well as visiting in Atchison before they return home.” Atchison (Kansas) Daily Globe, Tuesday, January 30, 1912, quoted in Lace – Atchison Manx Connections; http://www.isle-of-man.com/genealogy/messageboard/manx_archive_1.pl?md=read;id=9942.
