OBITUARY: Iva Ruth Mortensen Adams, 85, passed away, Monday, July 23, 2012, at her home in Virden, N.M. She was born, July 11, 1927, in Central to Hans Jorgen and Winnie Francis (Martin) Mortensen. She married William Jack Adams on July 30, 1944. She was surrounded by some of her family members as she peacefully left this Earth life.
Family was very important to her. Her house was always full of family and friends; all felt loved and welcome. Iva was raised on a farm in Virden, and she always talked about what a good life they had, from horse and buggy to space ships. She was a faithful, active member of her church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Many will remember Iva from her many years of service as a mail carrier in Duncan.
She is survived by daughter Jackie Moore of Safford, son Norman (Zoann) of Virden, son Tommy (Donna) of Thatcher and daughter Debra (Carl) Crotts of Virden. She has 15 grandkids, 42 great-grandkids and one great-great-grandson.
