Iva M. Kotts
Iva M. Kotts, 88, of Adrian, formerly of Clinton, died Wednesday, Aug. 18, 2010, in Bixby Emergency Room, Adrian. She was born April 8, 1922, in Clinton, the daughter of Wesley and Lulu (Kotts) Scofield. She married Charles Kotts Oct. 12, 1953, in Kingsland, Ga., who sadly, preceded her in death in 1978.
Iva is survived by two nephews; Johnny Kotts and Richard Tarte; her special friends and caregivers, and her church and funeral home families.
In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by one sister and one brother.
Iva was a longtime, and very active, member of the Clinton United Methodist Church, and the Semper Fidelis Circle. She had worked in the Tecumseh and Clinton area during her lifetime and for the Handler (Proctor/Couture) Funeral homes for over 25 years. She also had past memberships in the Southern Michigan Railroad Society and Clinton Chamber of Commerce. When you hear the chimes in the clock tower of the Clinton Inn, think of Iva.
Visitation was held on Monday, Aug. 23, at the Clinton United Methodist Church until the time of her services. Pastor Faye McKinstry officiated and burial followed in Riverside Cemetery, Clinton. Memorial contributions in her name may be made to the Clinton United Methodist Church.
