Margery Joyce Igo Obituary

Margery Joyce Igo, 87, peacefully passed away at the Fountains on Tuesday, November 19, 2013. She was preceeded in death by her husband of 55 years, Dudley Igo. Margery and Dudley loved to travel, play Bridge, dine with friends, attend the theater, and spoil their Schnauzers, which resulted in many years of a happy life together.

Margery was born in Guelph, Ontario, Canada, on January 26, 1926 to Rudy and Clifford Knighton. Margery earned her RN degree at a surgical teaching hospital in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. She came to California in the early 1950s seeking adventure and a nursing career, both of which she found when she married Dudley in 1952. She proudly became a naturalized citizen of the United States, and never missed an election. Margery was a surgical nurse, a public health nurse, and a jail nurse over her career.

Margery is survived by two daughters, Barbara Alves (Douglas Joksch) of Yuba City, Beverley Igo (Sandy Jaeger) of Reno, NV, and her beloved grandson Cody Alves, of Sacramento. Cody was the light of her life! He brought her untold joy. Margery is also survived by a brother, Harley Knighton, of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Margery also leaves behind many loving and devoted friends.

Graveside services will be held at Sutter Cemetery, Saturday, November 30, 2013 at 11:00am.
