Iva Mae Whitis, age 92, of Elsmere, Kentucky passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 surrounded by her family at University of Cincinnati Medical Center after a fall at her home April 28, 2022. She was born in Crab Orchard, Kentucky on September 13, 1929 to the late Virgil and Grace Ellen Smiley (nee Petrey).

Iva was a faithful member of Elsmere Baptist Church. She was everyone's mother and grandmother, loving them as her own, unconditionally.

Her greatest accomplishment was her family, she loved her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren more than she could ever express.
