Despite her increasing breathing difficulties, making simple day-to-day chores a burden, she never let her condition wear her down. She vowed not to let go of her independence and she NEVER did, amazing all who knew her with her will to live and desire to maintain a high quality life.
In recent months, Iva acquired a motorized scooter to enable her to maintain her independence. Her friend, Keith Main, modified the scooter allowing Iva to travel to and from the doctor, grocery store and to shop at nearby malls. Keith and his wife Judi decorated the scooter with decals and racing stripes which delighted Iva, and she would show them off to her many friends.
Despite her increasingly failing health, Iva NEVER complained. Those who knew her well were amazed at her inner strength and dignity. She was described many times as a "classy lady".
Left to cherish Iva's memory are her children Christine Binkowski and husband Bruce of San Diego, California; and Timothy Dean and wife Shannon of Bellingham, Washington; granddaughter Shannon Marsh of Copperas Cove, Texas; grandsons Rocky Binkowski of San Diego; and Todd Hunter of Bellingham; great-grandchildren Cortni Troublefield and Anthony Troublefield of Copperas Cove; four nephews David Cooper and wife Delilah; Bob Hill; Todd Hill; Eldon Wheeler; and three nieces Carolyn Brown; Barbara Gaddis and Lynn Hill.
