Dr. A. Ivey, Long Time Dentist Died Sept. 24
The community was shocked on Wednesday afternoon when it was announced that Dr. A. Ivey had passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. James Miner in Charles City. Dr. Ivey had been ill for over a year. He had an operation in a Charles City hospital from which he did not recover. He came home and stayed for a time and then went to Rochester and later to Charles City.
Dr. Ivey had practiced dentistry in this city for 47 years and had always enjoyed a fine practice. We have always had a very close acquaintanceship with the Doctor and can say he was one of the finest men we have had for a friend. He was kind and considerate of all and a perfect gentleman.
Dr. Ivey was 71 years of age at the time of his death. He was a young man when he entered the practice in Mason City where he remained for a year before coming to this city. He was preceded in death by his wife.
The funeral services will be held from the Mahlum and Sandin chapel at two o’clock Friday afternoon, the Rev. C. J. Semans officiating. Interment will be in the Catholic Cemetery. (Estherville Enterprise, Estherville, IA, September 25, 1947)
