Marie Ivie passed away March 7, 2007, at her home with her family by her side.
Marie was born to Pearl and Sam Guisasola on Nov. 9, 1926, in Mackay, Idaho. She married the love of her life, Arthur A. Ivie, on Sept. 19, 1943. From this union four children were born: Ronald, Linda, Elaine and Dee. When her brother, Larry, passed away, Art and Marie adopted Marie's niece, Candietta, and raised her as her own.
Marie is survived by Ron Ivie (Vivian), Linda Debo (Allen), Elaine Thompson (Pete), Dee Ivie (Marlys), Candy Young; 14 grandchildren, Mike Galeoto, Ron Ivie, Jr., Ronda Powers, Mark Ivie, Whitnee Dudley Ivie, Andrea Debo, Jason Thompson, Heather Thompson, Brandon Ivie, Rachel Johns, Logan Young, Luke Young, Jake Pearce, Amanda Pearce; and numerous great-grandchildren.
Marie retired from the Blaine County Courthouse in January 1987 after working there for 33 years, most of those as clerk of the district court ex officio auditor and recorder for Blaine County.
Marie loved the outdoors. She enjoyed snowmobiling, four-wheeling, fishing and camping as well as bowling, playing cards or just visiting with friends or family. She also loved to travel. There was never a road trip too far that she wouldn't be up for. She always seemed to be surrounded by friends or family. She never met anyone who couldn't help but like Marie. She was a friend to everyone she knew. Her home was a central meeting spot for every special occasion under the sun. Her famous words, "I think it's beer time," will never be forgotten.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Arthur A. Ivie; and six brothers, Sammy, Charles, Larry, Bud, Sparky and Bill.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, March 10, 2007, at 11 a.m., at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Hailey, Idaho.
She will truly be missed by her family, friends and the community. The family would like to thank Hospice of the Wood River Valley for all its help. Donations to Hospice in lieu of flowers would be appreciated.
