Mrs. Stock graduated from Beardstown High School in the class of 1946. Her life was devoted to her faith, family, and friends. She was a lifelong member of First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Beardstown and was always open with her faith sharing the love of God with others. She was a member of Cass County Homemakers and throughout her life she was known as “Aunt Peach” to those closest to her. Iva’s greatest joy in life was her family. She raised six children all while helping on the family farm, maintaining meticulous laundry, and cooking many delicious meals. She was sophisticated and elegant with her style and was proud to be called “Grammie”. Iva was her grandchildren’s biggest fan and loved cheering “You can do it” at an uncountable number of games. She was an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan and loved to feel the warmth of the sun.
