Ivy Case Hosch, 96, died Saturday January 1, 2011, at the Sanctuary Hospice House in Tupelo following a brief illness. Services will be at 11:00 Monday, January 3, 2011, at the Wright and Ferguson Funeral Home on Highland Colony Parkway in Ridgeland, MS with Visitation from 10:00 until service time.
A native of Brookhaven, she was President and Valedictorian of the Class of 1932, receiving a scholarship to Newcomb College in New Orleans. Although she ultimately received Bachelors and Masters Degrees in both English and Social Work from Newcomb and Tulane, the family always laughed about her reluctance to begin the first grade. Despite the best escort efforts of brother Houston Case and his classmate, Louis Decell, each of the first two days of school she fled from Brookhaven Grammar School to the U. S. Post Office where she found her father's car and hid, not coming out until he was too far along his rural mail route to take her back to school. Eventually she gave school a try, which began a lifelong love of learning with a keen eye for grammar, spelling, and literature.
She taught English at Pearl River Junior College, and then moved to Jackson and began a career as a Social Worker with the Mississippi Department of Public Welfare, which she held through World War II and until the birth of her first child. At that time she devoted herself to her family.
She is survived by her sons, Burton B. Hosch, Jr, (Patty) of Tupelo, and William E. Hosch of Plano, TX, by her granddaughters, Ann Colter Cheron (Rob) of Alexandria, VA, and Wurth Hosch of Washington, D.C., by her great grandchildren, Baynes Cheron and Ronan Cheron, and by her brother, Houston Case of Brookhaven. She was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Burton B. Hosch in 2005, by her parents, Lonnie and Cattie Case, by her brother Harrison Case, and sisters Nell Raabe, Marjorie Alford, and Billie Jean Kistenmacher.
Memorials may be sent to Broadmeadow United Methodist Church, of which she was a charter member, at 4419 Broadmeadow Dr., Jackson, MS 39206.
