Lucas, Iva E.

Iva E. Lucas passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 10, 2008. She was surrounded by her loving family- daughter Darlene, and sons Dwayne and Dwight. Iva was born on the family farm near Colonsay, SK, on December 14, 1920. She had a great passion for animals, and loved the prairies. She later attended business school in Saskatoon, and became a bank clerk. In 1943, she and Arthur Lucas were married in Mazenod, SK, and from there they lived in numerous places to the East and West, including Mazenod, Prince Albert, Waskesiu, and Regina SK, to Simcoe, London, and Ottawa ON, Saskatoon, and later to Calgary AB. Always a ‘prairie girl’ at heart, Iva cared for the welfare of others with compassion and good will. She was the “nicest lady” who never judged people and accepted them for who they were. Mom loved to travel, and visited numerous continents and countries, chasing her children around the world. She will be dearly missed and always loved by all who knew her. Iva was the last of Lonzo and Victoria McKay’s children, being predeceased by her brothers William and George, and sisters Patricia, Elizabeth (“Libbie”), Alice Bodman, and Esther French. Iva also lost her husband Arthur in October 1971. Left to cherish her memory is daughter Darlene Kormos, and children Jamie and Drew; son Dwayne Lucas, daughter-in-law Terry (nee Murphy) and children Katie and Jonathan; and son Dwight Lucas and daughter-in-law Gail Chapman. A Celebration of Iva’s Life will be held at Robert McClure United Church (5510 – 26th Avenue N.E.) on Saturday, December 20, 2008 at 3:00 p.m.   A Memorial Service will be held at Rosedale Cemetery in Moose Jaw, SK in the summer. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the charity of the donor’s choice.  Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.comIn living memory of Iva Lucas, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Eastside Memorial Chapel, 5388 MEMORIAL DRIVE N.E.
