I'm sorry to hear of Iva's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Iva was a great friend and neighbor of my Grandmother Emily Siegel who passed away several years ago. My Grandma always spoke so kindly and loving of Iva. Often when my family came to Andrew we would stop and see Iva. It was always nice to see her and her smile. She was always upbeat and welcoming. We always had fun visiting. She was a very special person.
Please accept my sincere sympathy.

I was so sorry to hear of Iva’s passing, yet know she is glad to be home again, gathered with all the loved ones who have gone before her. I really only got acquainted with Iva the years she resided at the GNH with my father, but there wasn’t a time missed that she didn’t check in on my dad or inquire about his status. And it was evident she knew she had been blessed with an incredible family - always surrounded by love. May God grant all of you peace and understanding as you find your new way without her presence. Loving thoughts and prayers for all of you, the Families of Gordon & Alice Schmidt...Paula & Don Krogmann, Laura & Bill Thomas, Gary & Andrea Schmidt
