RUMFORD – Angie Marion Ivers, 100, of Rumford, formerly of Rangeley and the recipient of the Boston Post Cane of Rangeley since Oct. of 2008, (an honor held also by her grandmother and brother), died early Tuesday morning, June 17, 2009 at the Rumford Community Home. She was born April 20, 1909, in Rangeley, a daughter of Ruel and Vellum (Philbrick) Wilcox. She received her education in Rangeley schools and in June of 1929, married Henry John Ivers. He died in May of 1962.

She was a devoted homemaker who always loved being with her family. Periodically, throughout the years, she also was employed at the Laundromat in Oquossoc. She was a member of the Rangeley Free Baptist Church. She was a hard worker and a classic “adaptor”, always meeting life’s challenges “head-on”. A nature lover, she enjoyed fishing and hunting, berry picking and finding little treasures in the wonderful wilderness of her beloved hometown of Rangeley. She was also an avid card player and enjoyed the aptly named marble game, Aggravation. She was an extravert who enjoyed watching and studying people; her spry attitude and sense of humor were admirable attributes, particularly in her later years.

Carolina; Nellie Eilertsen of Tennessee, Janet Mannix and her husband, David of NY; Sandra Marino and her husband, Bill of S.
