Death has not claimed her legacy. There are international as well as local organizations that benefited from her donations. Ivy "adopted" children around the world with donations to charities that fed, clothes and educated them.
Rare accomplishments for one so meek, humble and mild. This world is lessened by her absence. Truly, she will rest in peace; for we know: "to be absent from the body...is to be present with the Lord." II Corinthians 5:8
