Nelda Ivie
80th Birthday
We hope you will be able to join us in celebrating Nel's eightieth birthday! There will be an Open-house on Sunday, August 31, from 4:00 to 6:00, at The Gathering Place, 335 West Main, Delta, Utah. It will be an informal, casual celebration, so please plan to drop by and wish Nelda a happy birthday.
Nel was born in Oasis on September 23, 1928 to George E. Roundy and Tecla Christensen Roundy. Nelda's mother died when she was an infant and she moved into the home of Peter H. and Inga Christensen Peterson. Nel called her new parents Mom and Dad and became a younger sister to Pete and Inga's two daughters, Mae P. Welch and Drue P. Roberts. She was loved by both families, and throughout her life, maintained a close relationship with her birth father and brothers Nathan Roundy, George (Butch) Roundy, Parley Roundy, and her sisters Novella Demowich and Florence Lowder. The family suffered a tragedy when Nathan was killed in WWII at Iwo Jima. He was buried at sea.
Nelda attended elementary school at the A.C. Nelson in Deseret and High School in Hinckley. She later moved to Delta where she graduated from Delta High School in 1946.
Shortly after her twentieth birthday, Nelda married Melvin J. Ivie. She and Mel moved to McGill, Nevada where Mel was employed by Kennecott Copper as an electrician foreman. Nel and Mel had a great marriage that lasted fifty-eight years. They enjoyed playing cards, camping, fishing and boating with family and friends. They decided to move back to Delta in 1987. Melvin passed away in 2006.
Nelda is famous for her popcorn balls. She loves to shop and can often be found in line at the checkout counter. But she has promised to stop popping and shopping for a couple of hours so we can all wish her a "Happy Birthday!"
