The family moved to Lima, NY where Ivy graduated from high school. She married and moved to Livonia to raise her 3 children.

Ivy was the cherished mother of Katherine (Karl) Bill, Robert Strasburg II, and Steven (Joyce) Strasburg. Her 6 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren were Ivy's pride and joy. Survivors also include sisters Maxine Benson and Myrtle (Mike) Teed, sister-in-law Judy Hendrickson, many nieces and nephews and her loving caregivers. Ivy will be greatly missed by her family, but we have the blessed assurance that we will see her again. A memorial service will be held in the coming spring or summer.
