Iva and Oscar had 69 wonderful years together, always loving to ride around checking on their cows, and just sitting on the front porch holding hands. She was a faithful member of Mount Pleasant Missionary Baptist Church at Langley, and dearly loved her church family. She also had a kind and heartfelt love for all children, and it was well known and shown, as she always had to give her wonderful hugs to each and every child anywhere she may have gone.
