3 Condolences for Iva Roseman (Barrow) Menton

  • “All” of us at Main Towers will miss Sarge; Sergeant Menton kept the place Spic and Span. She would walk the corridors and parking lot and created work orders for the staff. We noticed her change when she stopped giving us WO’s but we still did what she asked when she remembered. Ms. Ivy was a fixture here at Main Towers and a pleasure to “work” with, our deepest condolences to the family. I’m sure she’s up there telling the Angels what to do.

  • We just want to say how sorry we are to hear about Iva. She was Michaels Godmother. We have missed seeing Iva at church all the time since we moved but thought of her often. Iva was a beautiful person and will be missed dearly. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

  • Sending prayers to family and friends
    I was a very close friend that worked at Kmarts with Ivy
    Very hard worker . She will be missed
