RHODES, Iva Jean (née McMULLEN,) B.A. (Hons)
(April 29, 1914-January 22, 2008)
A kind, gentle and elegant lady, teacher to many and a caring friend to all ages, passed away at Beechwood Court, Mississauga in her 94th year, after a long illness. Youngest daughter of the late John and Pearl McMULLEN of Petrolia. Predeceased by Douglas, her loving husband of 66 years, her beloved son Frederick and dear sister and brother-in-law, Orris and Melvin BEECROFT. Iva was deeply loved by her daughter Pamela ALEXANDER of New Zealand, daughter-in-law Carol ROLPH of Garden Hill, granddaughters Jennifer RUSAW of Newcastle, Meredith SEABROOK of Yellowknife, Morgain HOLLINGHURST of Edmonton and Jalynn ANDERSEN of Vancouver and their families including eight great-grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by her nephew Doctor J. BEECROFT and his wife Roberta and her niece Heather BEECROFT of Toronto and their families. Iva was a graduate of Western University (English and French) Class of 1934 and was employed as a teacher in Petrolia, Montreal, Sarnia and Mississauga. Her love of teaching English, French and Latin was the basis for a life long love of reading and her favorite novel was Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Iva had many interests including knitting, sewing, bridge, music, theatre and travel and was famous for baking bran muffins. She was a longstanding member of her church, Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire and the Retired Teachers Association of Ontario. She brought her family together on many happy occasions and her legacy of love, courage and strength is an inspiration to all who were privileged to know her. Her "larger than life hugs" will be sorely missed. Iva's family wish to thank all the wonderful caregivers, both in her home (Seniors for Seniors) and Beechwood Court (Excel Care) who provided support and love during this difficult stage of life. In addition, appreciation is extended to her former neighbours as well as members of Saint Peter's Church who shared their love. Special thanks to Michael Lavelle and Chris Hyatt for their unwavering Friendship and loyalty through many years. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, January 26, 2008 at 11 a.m. at Saint Peter's Erindale Anglican Church, 1745 Dundas Street, W. Mississauga with visiting beginning ½ hour prior.
