Rolland Ivey was the six-year-old son of A.M. Ivey and Adaline Chapel Ivey. From infancy the lad had suffered with spinal bifadas, but withal was a patient little sufferer. All who came to know him characterized the lad as "a ray of heavenly sunshine." An uncle, writing upon the occasion of his death said, "He has proved the great loved of his make, God."

Rolland Ivey lived more in his short span of life than the most of us who may be allotted the full "three years and ten." His life was a lesson of patience, in cheerfulness, in pure grit.

A short service was held at the residence of Charles Johnson, at 11:30 o'clock Wednesday morning for the friends here in Evansville, the regular service having been held in the home of the parents at Thorp. Mr. Ivey is the Methodist pastor at Thorp. Interment was held in Maple Hill Cemetery, The Rev. Golder R. Lawrence, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Evansville, officiated.
