Iva Lee married Floyd Andrews on September 29, 1945, and relished her life as a wife and mother gladly dedicating herself to making a happy home for her family. She was adored by her grandkids, and she adored each one of them. She was a talented seamstress and a great cook.
Iva was an active member of First Baptist Church in Durant, Oklahoma. She loved her Sunday School class and looked forward to the monthly parties. She also met with 12 other ladies every month to play Bunco.

She spent many busy years working alongside her husband Floyd as a secretary of A1 Air Conditioning and co-owner of Big A Quick Stop. She spent many hours in the hayfield and on the family farm.
