Iva Lee (Howard) MeyerhoefferSeptember 11, 1933 ~ February 15, 2017 (age 83)
On Wednesday, February 15, 2017, our dear mother, Iva Lee Howard Meyerhoeffer, was escorted by the angels into the arms of Jesus. No, she did not gain her wings and she did not become an angel. She is a redeemed saint for whom Jesus died. For to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. She is there in all the fullness of whatever that means. Hallelujah
