RUMFORD – Angie Marion Ivers, 100, of Rumford, formerly of Rangeley and the recipient of the Boston Post Cane of Rangeley since October 2008, (an honor held also by her grandmother and brother), died early Tuesday, June 17, 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 1929, married Henry John Ivers. He died in May 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 extrovert who enjoyed watching and studying people; her spry attitude and sense of humor were admirable attributes, particularly in her later years.

She is survived by nine daughters, Marion Gallo and her husband, Anthony, of California, Clara Lockell and Ann Bruen, both of New York, Alice Yuzzi and her husband, Anthony, of North Carolina, Nellie Eilertsen of Tennessee, Janet Mannix and her husband, David, of New York, Sandra Marino and her husband, Bill, of South Carolina, Gloria Breton and her husband, David, of Rumford and Bonnie Haggan and her husband,Tom, of Rangeley; three sons, Barrymore Ivers and his wife, Guyla, of California, Roy Ivers and his wife, Carol, of Gray and Peter Ivers and his wife, Debra, of Windham; several grand, great-grand; great-great-grand and great-great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by three sons, Walter, Bruce and Brent; and eight siblings.
