IVENS, Madeline
February 7, 1927 – June 23, 2020
Madeline Ivens, 93, passed away peacefully the morning of Tuesday, June 23, 2020, at home in Red Deer, Alberta. Born Magdalena Thiele in Spring Valley, Saskatchewan, Madeline moved with her family to Kelowna, BC, at the age of 7. She married John Ivens on October 13, 1947, and they worked the family orchard. As their kids got a little older, she worked at Willits Taylor Drugs in downtown Kelowna; at the Palms Restaurant; a number of years in a rug factory; and she and Johnny swung hammers together as cabinet installers. She was always a very hard worker. They moved back to Spring Valley to be school custodians, and then enjoy their retirement. She loved to visit over hot dogs and happy hour. She avidly knitted and crocheted, and always had 2 novels on the go. She gardened and cut grass with a ride on mower into her 90s. Survived by 3 children, 10 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren: Jim (Kathy) Ivens: Chris Ivens (Sheila Schindler-Ivens) (John, Charlie), Greg Ivens; Kathy Evans: Brodie (Kelly) Evans (Brendan, Samantha), Tracie (Sean) Craig (Alison, Morgen); Don (Colleen) Ivens: Michael (Renee) Ivens (Kira, Carson), Debbie Ivens, Beverly Ivens (Hannah); Ed Hunt: Grace Hunt (James Handysides) (Rain), Tyrell (Sara) Hunt (Madeline), Leland (Mandy) Hunt. Also survived by 5 siblings: Carol Leckie, Elly Hamilton, Jackie Gramlich, Bob (Lynda) Fugger and Frank (Gayle) Fugger. Predeceased by her husband, John Ivens (1995); father, Jacob Fugger (1970); mother, Katherine (Thiele) Fugger (1996); daughter, Colleen (Ivens) Hunt (2005); son-in-law, Russ Evans (2013). A gathering will take place in Spring Valley when it is allowed.
