Nola "Vonnie" Yvonne Ivey

August 25th, 1951 - March 10th, 2012

Nola Yvonne “Vonnie Glaze” Ivey On Saturday, March 10, 2012, Vonnie Ivey, 60, of Caldwell slipped away into the arms of her parents and grandparents who have been waiting for her in Heaven. Nola Rae Underwood and Arnold Underwood were the proud parents of 4 daughters, Vonnie, being the oldest, Terri Relka, Mary Rosevear and Eva Garcia. Vonnie was born on August 25, 1951 in Nyssa, Oregon. Vonnie attended elementary, junior high, and part of high school in Nyssa, Oregon. She was an excellent student, always at the top of her class. Vonnie had a love for music and played the clarinet during high school. The highlight of her high school career was being chosen to play during the half time entertainment for the Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers game. The band leader chose Vonnie, and her family member Dawn, to carry the Idaho State Flag and the US flag as a presentation for the audience in the front of the band. It was the highlight of their high school career. Dawn said it was an honor they will never forget. Vonnie’s father had various jobs in the Nyssa area including working for Vonnie’s Grandfather in construction in the rural area of Oregon. Many of her summers were spent in Westfall, Oregon as well as Juntura, where she spent many days enjoying time with her grandparents who were so dear to her. Vonnie being the oldest grandchild was a big part of her grandparent’s lives. She always held them in the highest regard, as they did her. She enjoyed family get together’s and loved celebrating and sharing the holidays with her dearest friends and family. Her family moved to Payette where her mother acquired a job and then on to Weiser where she finished her schooling. At 18 she became a proud mother, choosing to embrace her first born on her own. A few years later, Vonnie, with her oldest daughter, Michelle moved to Ventura, California where she decided to experience something new. It was there she started a new family, having her other 2 children Stephen Paul and Summer Glaze. Although Vonnie felt peace with the ocean, her heart brought her back to Idaho. Vonnie worked hard since her early years of childhood. Her belief in hard work was proven in the career paths she chose beginning at Zilog, in Nampa and ending in the Fred Meyer Pharmacy in Nampa. Vonnie developed an exceptional work ethic that she has proudly passed on to each of her children. On November 28, 1992, she married Doug Ivey of Nampa. It was then she and Doug began their life together. They shared 24 years of love and friendship. Doug describes Vonnie as being the most beautiful and caring person he has known. Vonnie is survived by Michelle Glaze, her oldest daughter, “her protector” who will continue to shine on her mother’s behalf. Summer Glaze, the youngest, her sweet baby girl that will carry on her feistiness and her son Stephen “Paul” Glaze who stole her heart since the day he was born. Vonnie also holds her daughter Stephanie Ronel Taylor (through marriage) very close to her heart. Her children love her deeply now, as they did in the past and will carry her light she shined on so many. Vonnie’s spirit will be passed on through her grandchildren she adored; they truly were her greatest gifts. Karisma Glaze Dines, the eldest, who Vonnie believed had the strongest heart and soul, and always admired her independence. Killian Glaze, who she was so proud of and helped raise since he was a sweet little baby, SydNee Wilson who brought so much joy and laughter to her heart, and the youngest grandson, Berkley Edwards who continued to make her smile. Vonnie influenced so many people, too many to list. Vonnie is now a bright star who has joined her sister in a beautiful constellation, where she will sparkle in the heavens forever. There will be a celebration of life, Monday, March 19, 2012, 1:00pm at Flahiff Funeral Chapel in Caldwell, Idaho. Friends are welcome. Service Information
