Ivy was born April 13, 1925 to Ingrid and Trygve Fjeldheim and married Arnold Pugh on December 27, 1942. They raised their family of seven children in the Climax district and Ivy was always involved in community activities, helping care for her many children and grandchildren over the years.
Ivy worked hard alongside her husband of over 64 years where they farmed and Ivy was known for her beautiful yard, large garden and incredible flowers.
Ivy Pugh, Mom, Gramma, will be lovingly remembered as the very BEST gramma. She was the most giving, hardworking and talented woman. She could craft, hot glue, sew, bake, garden, cook, decorate, design, sing, and play organ, guitar or harpsichord with the best of them.
Gramma gave the warmest hugs, the biggest kisses and usually sent you home with something, be it leftover food or dessert, a toy from the basement, $5 dollars, a stuffed animal she happened across or a lawn ornament looking for a new home.
Ivy had a passion for the Lord and has been a witness for her family as well as those who were blessed to have known her. Although she will be terribly missed, she has gone home to be with her Lord and Savior in heaven.
