Mildred Louise Abraham Ivy

Mildred Louise Abraham Ivy, 89 years old, of Louisville, MS went to her eternal home December 22, 2016. Visitation is from 12:00 until 2:00 p.m. Friday, December 23, 2016, at Nowell-Massey Funeral Home.
Services are at 2:00 p.m. December 23, 2016, at Nowell-Massey Funeral Home with Bro. Jerry Lundy officiating.
Interment will follow in Yellow Creek Cemetery in Winston County. 

She was born March 3, 1927 in Greenwood, Mississippi and raised by her loving parents Mary McArthur Abraham and Joe F. Abraham.
Although most of her life was lived in Louisville, she attended school at Mashulaville and always spoke fondly of the memories and friends she made during school and while living in the dormitory. As an adult, she worked as a clock inspector at the Spartus Corporation.

Mildred was a sweet and loving mother to four children, a grandmother and a great grandmother. She was a wonderful person who showed love to everyone she met. She was caring and beautiful inside and out.

Even though she experienced numerous adversities in her life she remained strong and determined. Her life was defined by her love and faith in her lord and savior, Jesus Christ. Time may have robbed her of many names and memories, but she never forgot the name of Jesus or the words to her favorite hymns. She was a member of Harmony Baptist Church.

She is preceded in death by her parents. Survivors are her four children: Mary Jane (Frankie) Boykin of Brooksville, Betty (Willie) Miles of Louisville, Johnny (Carolyn) Ivy of Louisville and Patricia (David) Holton of Louisville; six grandchildren: Greg (Patrice) Boykin, Kristi (Heath) Beard, Jon (Stacey) Miles, Justin (Adria) Miles, Kim (Kevin) Swicegood, Stacy (Bill) Sullivan, and eleven great grandchildren.

Pallbearers will be Greg Boykin, Bradley Boykin, Alex Boykin, Jon Miles, Justin Miles, Jaycob Sullivan, and Honorary Pallbearers Bill Sullivan and Heath Beard.
