Iva (Bausman) Leverton was the daughter of George and Rachel (Miller) Bausman. Her obituary was published in the Freeport Journal-Standand on September 29, 1958.
This obituary is a bit odd since it has another obituary mixed in with it. Paragraphs 1, 2 and 5 are Iva’s obituary. Paragraphs 3, 4, and 6 reference a Mrs. Huett. Why this obituary was written this way is a mystery.
