From the first moment I met Iva when she came to LARC, my world changed for the better! With her friendship, love and laughter we created a very close bond. Iva's spitfire attitude, humor, shared faith and love established a deep connection between us. Iva's care and love of me and my daughter were always greatly appreciated! Iva will live on in my heart forever… and I know she's now singing "loud and proud" in Heaven. I was honored to know, love and care for her. Iva Dean Reed ... FOREVER in my heart!

I just learned of Dean's death about an hour ago...unfortunately not enough time to make it over to Fulton for the visitation. I especially wanted to express to Mireille my sympathy. The last of her bounty of brothers and sisters....another generation passed. I remember at church she would often catch me up on what you were doing and where you were; she was always so proud of you. Know that my prayers are with you and the rest of your family. She is with Jesus now and one day she can catch us up on her joy of being in the very presence of her Savior!

Iva Dean Reed. What can I possibly say that others here haven’t already said so clearly. She was a precious gift to us all! I am so grateful she was a part of my life and will forever cherish the memories of her! Yes, she brightened every room with her contagious smile! Yes, she was the BEST cook ever! Her home always smelled of something delicious cooking and she always had plenty for whomever was there visiting! She had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone in need. She was an encourager, and I know my momma loved talking with her. She gave the best hugs ever! I never left there without feeling the deepest love from her! She loved to give gifts! She often gave my mom little gifts, which Mom cherished. I remember her sending us Christmas gifts in the mail! I was SO excited to get a package and could barely wait till Mom opened it to reveal what was inside! She was one of few siblings who came to Indy to visit. Mom was so thrilled to have company as family meant the world to her! So you see, there are so many reasons we will miss her! But, her memory will stay in our hearts forever! Her sweet smile will continue to remind us to smile! Her giving heart will encourage us to be givers! Her contagious laugh will remind us to laugh often, for laughter is great medicine! Her strength will help us be strong! I pray for comfort and peace for our family. Wish I could be there, but I am so grateful I had a good visit with her a few years ago! I will be there in spirit!

Such a precious woman. Your family left a lasting impression on a little “city” girl who came to visit my Aunt Wanda, who lived next door.
Love to your family.

I have amazing memories of Aunt Dean as a young boy visiting our many Aunts and Uncles and cousins in Missouri during the summers. We always hung with the Reed family and my sister Melody and I had many great times. Aunt Dean was always so happy and energetic. She had an amazing life and left her mark on so many people. She will be sorely missed by many. Rest In Peace Aunt Dean!

Almost three years ago when I first met this beautiful soul when she was admitted at SNF. Each day we’ve got to know her as feisty at times, emotional, a sweetheart, and can be silly and funny. I remember when all of a sudden she was sitting behind me at the nursing station and poke my arm or my back, I startled because I got that static feelings, and it happened every time she does that. I always knew it was her, she will apologies then smile. She’s one of the faces that I will always remembered and missed at work as her presence brings joy to us. For those years of nursing and caring for her it was an honor and fulfilling.
Iva was also a very sweet lady, thoughtful, warmth, and a loving mother.
“With a fading memory a loving heart remains, yes the mind will forget but the heart will always remember” She might not know the exact date, what happened yesterday or last week. But She always thought about her love ones, her little angel, her mother, her twin sister. Anything, everything, anyone she loves was marked into her heart, will forever stays and will forever remember. She was a proud grandma, she talked about her Charlsie, her eyes were wide open and smiling when she was watching her video performing. She loves to hear her daughter’s voice even if it’s on the phone, she will smile and cry but enough to ease her worry.
To Iva’s family my deepest condolence. Thank you for your trust, I my self is so great full to be one of her nurses, as I got a share of warm hugs and kisses. Knows that she loves you all, she’s a happy soul and she knows she was loved during her time on earth and will be forever missed.
on t’ aime maman Iva , jusqu’a ce que nous nous revoyions 💐

The last time I got to see Iva her and Elizabeth came to see my mom Alcrita Yoast at mom home in Oklahoma. Myself and Elizabeth watch them both talking to each other and it was amazing to see. I love that lady very much. She will be missed very much here. And my God bless her and bless the family. Love all of you.

my Dearest Aunt Deanie .....oh the memories i will hold dear to my heart. first and foremost is knowing grandma had 14 kids and you were a part of that great big family . God bless her as that’s A LOt of kids. WOW !! but to no that Aunt Dean was a twin was always intriguing to me. Grandma had 2 sets of twins and the other set of twins was my father Arthur William Pope. so to be a child of one of one those two sets of twins was to me, always a pride thing. then my sister Sherie would end up having twin boys. so neat to see the gene pool of twins continue with the POPE family. another great memory is that some times Sherie and i would spend the night with Mirielle and Elizabeth when we were kids and my Aunt Dean would ALWAYS have the best food and desserts made for us. she was one of the best cooks ever. she always had a beautiful smile on her face and her laughter was infectious. her love for Uncle John and her children was a love i admired. i will always remember the old two story house in Hatton McCredie as a place filled with love and laughter with my Aunt Deanie, Uncle John and my sweet cousins who i will love and until my last breath. thank you Aunt Deanie for your love. until we meet again..... rest in
peace and see ya again soon. Patricia
