Iva graduated from Graham High School and Columbia Bible College in Columbia, SC. After graduation, she worked for Southern Bell Telephone Co. as an overseas operator during WWII. While being a homemaker was her most important role in life, she was also employed by Liberty School and Liberty Police Department as a dispatcher. She was always very supportive of her family and was involved in several activities while her children were growing up, including the local Cub Scout and Girl Scout Troops. She was involved with the Ladies Missionary and taught for many years at Liberty Friends Meeting.
During retirement, Iva was proud to be a member of the William Prather York VFW Post 8721 Ladies Auxiliary and felt it an honor to serve the Veterans in the Liberty area.
The family would like to thank all who knew and loved Iva, and especially her recent in-home caregivers. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Hospice of Randolph County, PO Box 9, Asheboro, NC 27204.
