In this very sad time, we all can at least find some comfort in knowing that you, Grandma Iva, you know The Lord. I love and miss you.

There simply are not enough words to share to convey the good ways in which Mom helped to shape our lives. She was one of the good old fashioned moms complete with love, the best stories, fried chicken, an honest smile and a sincere laugh. I have always considered myself to be blessed with the best uncles, aunts and cousins...and without question the best Dad and Mom. We miss you already. I will miss our visits on the phone....but I am so thankful that thru knowing Jesus as our Savior, I will be seeing your smile again.
Loving and missing you Mom.
Your son Rick, Linda and family

There are simply not enough words available to share with others, to even come close to telling the thousands of pieces of your lifes story that have touched so many in such a good way. You were one of good old fashioned Moms, complete with plenty of love, the best stories, fried chicken, and a smile that truly touched our hearts. I have always said I've been one of the lucky ones in life because I had the best uncles aunts and cousins on both sides of our family. Make no mistake I've had the best Mom and Dad too. We will miss you Mom. I'll miss visiting on the phone. We will miss that smile...but thanks to knowing Jesus as our Savior, I plan on seeing that smile again, Love your son, Rick, Linda and family.
