One of my greatest joys was coming to SouthFlo to visit my granny. There was so much in you I saw in myself, a true matriarch. I always made it my point of duty to get there!

I am enormously n immensely grateful I had the opportunity to visit with you many times. You will always be remembered and never forgotten. May you now sleep in peace.

You will be missed by us all! Love you always. xoxo

Peggy, Chris, Kasia and family.

I knew Miss Ivy as a child growing up in Sandside. I was a close neighbor who played with her younger children and grand child at her home. Miss Ivy was a loving, caring and pleasant person. She always make sure everyone is taking care of. When you visit her home she was very welcoming! It is said People who live long have good genes, her age tells it All.
May her soul Rest In Peace and light Perpetually shines on her!

Donna, sorry to hear that Miss Ivy passed. She was a forced to be reckoned with, she hold no prisoners; speak her mind and was very kind to everyone. I would say she lived! I believe her secret to a long life was to do whatever you want and if it is your time it is your time. Oh and smoke cigarettes inside out, lol. Please share my condolences to the rest of family. I wish I could be there to mourn her with you but I am currently at military school and cannot leave. I know you are the matriarch of the family and is expected to take care of everything. Please send me a way so I can contribute what I can to help with that responsibility. Miss Ivy helped us at a time when not even our blood would. 😢 I grieve with you. May her soul Rest In Peace. 😢😢😢😢😢

Love Always
