Constance T Ivan

July 23, 1930June 20, 2020

The family of Constance T. (Connie) Ivan celebrates the life of their mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend! Connie passed away on Saturday, June 20, 2020 at the Primrose Retirement Center in Pueblo, Colorado which had been her home for the last 7 years. She was born in Pulaski, Wisconsin on July 23, 1930, and moved to Colorado in the early 1950’s. She was working as an administrative assistant in the athletic department at Colorado College when she met her future husband, Ron, and they married on December 30, 1952. Their union produced six children; Mary Jo (Randy) Pocius, Judy (Tania Garcia) Ivan, Prim (Robin) Ivan, Ron Jr. (Alysia) Ivan, Steve (Elaine) Ivan, and John (Sue) Ivan who survive her. In addition, she is survived by 12 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, and many other family members and friends who were dearly loved. Her parents, husband and other family members preceded her in death. Connie, also affectionately known as “Slammer or Slam” to her family because of her ability to hit a long drive off the tee box, was first and foremost a woman of faith, and her family was most important in her life. She was strong, patient, kind, caring and classy. She never failed to thank those who helped her, and always said “I love you”. We will remember the phone calls on our birthday, the large family gatherings for the holidays, the support and personal memories each of us have of Connie, and her famous chili! We were blessed with a beautiful mother who was an example to us all by her strength in adversity. Our family would like to thank the Primrose Community for their compassion and care, and also Erin at Sangre de Cristo Hospice for her support in helping us care for our mother till the end. The family requests no food or flowers please, and private services will be held. Remembrances can be shared in care of the funeral home, and memorial donations may be made in Connie’s name to Sangre de Cristo Hospice in Pueblo, Colorado. We love and miss you Mom, but know that you are at home, enjoying the vision of God forever. Rest in Peace.

After the prayer before our meal, no matter the occasion, grandma always expressed thankfulness at seeing her family together. You are no longer with us now, grandma, but we look forward to the day when we can all be together again.

To the Family of Connie Ivan,
It is with great sadness we send this message. Your Mom was a very special and generous lady filled with kindness, understanding, and showed much compassion. She was loved by all of you and shared her love for all of you so many times throughout her life. She and your Dad were great parents. Your Mom was so proud of all of you, the grandchildren and great grandchildren and all the family accomplishments. Your Mom has left a wonderful legacy.
Steve and Elaine, I did contact Jeff, Mark and Kevin and they asked me to convey their condolences. May you and all your family find comfort in sharing your loving memories.
Please know we are keeping all of you in our prayers.
With love and sincere sympathy,
Gordon and Helen Murley, Jeff, Mark and Kevin
