It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ivy May Willis, age 80 years of Fogo on January 17th, 2021 at James Paton Memorial Regional Health Centre, Gander. Ivy was predeceased by her parents, Nicholas and Olive Dicks of Ming’s Bight; brothers: Bert and Woodrow and sister, Madeline (Gray).

Left to mourn with a lifetime of loving memories are her husband of 56 years, Frank; daughter Cheryl Penney and her husband, Randy; son: Glenn and his wife Donna; grandchildren: Brandon and Blair (Desiree) Penney and Katie Willis; siblings: Ruby, Elizabeth (Wilbert), Truman (Taffie), Pratt (Kay), Pierce (Marcie) and Sheila.

A funeral service for invited family and friends will be held at 11:00 am on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at St. Martin’s Anglican Cathedral, officiated by Reverend Diane Sacrey. Internment to be held in Fogo at a later date. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Ivy’s memory can be made to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

Ivy was born in Ming’s Bight on April 15, 1940. She left home at the tender age of 16 and went to the work at the Notre Dame Bay Hospital in Twillingate and later at the Grace General Hospital in St. John’s. It was there she met Frank. They moved to Fogo in 1964 where they started their family and grew their family business.

Ivy was a devoted wife and mother and always made sure there were delicious meals, fresh clothes off the line and warm hugs. While raising her family, Ivy spent countless hours ensuring the family business ran smoothly. More than anything Ivy loved being a grandmother. Her three grandchildren were her pride and joy and the center of her world. Ivy will be forever missed, loved and remembered by all who knew her.

The family would like to express our sincere appreciation to the staff of the dialysis unit for the years of care and support provided to Ivy. As well, our deepest gratitude to the nursing staff on the third floor of JPMRH, who provided overwhelming support and comfort in our most trying days.

Frank, Cheryl, Glenn and families:
Please accept our sincerest condolences at this time of great sorrow. We only met Ivy a few times but she was always gracious and kind to us and to Keena. It was so wonderful all those years ago to meet Frank & Ivy, "new" cousins to get to know and share stories with. We knew we were always welcome to come visit whenever we could get to Fogo an in those times when we couldn't, Frank & Ivy were only a phone call away. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all and we can only hope you keep and share your wonderful memories with each other. Love always, Jimmie and Trishe Willis
