Ivy worked at Jeno’s and St. Luke’s Hospital in Duluth then moved to Burnsville where she worked numerous jobs, including working as a security guard. In 1995 she moved to Duluth to be close to family. Ivy was a longtime resident of St. Ann’s Residence in Duluth until moving to her home in Bayshore for the last 3 ½ years.
