Sylvia Josephine Iverson, age 96 of Amery, WI, died early on Thursday morning, May 30, 2019, at her home surrounded by the love of her family and many caregivers at Riverbend Assisted Living in Amery, WI. She had been a resident of Riverbend since 2006.  
Sylvia was born April 15, 1923, in Clear Lake, WI, to Leonard & Josephine (Nilssen) Johnson. She grew up in the Clear Lake area, was confirmed at First Lutheran Church and graduated from Clear Lake High School. She was married to Orville K. Iverson on December 31, 1943, at the First Lutheran Church in Clear Lake. Together they operated the family dairy farm in Clayton, WI, and raised six children: Barry, Denny, Carol, Marcia, Daryl, and Delaine. In 1981 Sylvia and Orville retired and began wintering in San Benito, TX.  During this time, they made their summer home in the village of Clear Lake.  In her spare time, Sylvia enjoyed playing (and winning) King’s Corners, participating in church activities, singing hymns, gardening, painting, doing crafts, bird watching, camping, and fishing.  She was an active member of the Immanuel Lutheran Church in Clayton and spent her life being a fisher of men, lending a helping hand, always encouraging others, expressing gratitude, and spreading the Good Word. She touched the lives of many with her loving  disposition, caring nature, and Prayer Warrior Faith.

So saddened to hear of Great Aunt Sylvia’s passing. She always lived her beliefs in an inspiring, steadfast way that helped so many people. I can never express how much appreciation I had that she was with my grandma, her sister-in-law, LaVonne York, when she passed. Aunt Sylvia comforted me so much during that period and I will always be grateful. Sending my condolences, thoughts, and prayers to the Iverson family during this time.

With much love,
