During the 1950s and 60s, she owned and operated the Twin Kiss Drive-in restaurant on Columbia Ave, Lancaster. She also retired from RCA in 1983 after 22 years of service where she was a member of the IBEW union. After retirement, Ivie enjoyed working at her childrens’ businesses the Shamrock Café, Lancaster and the Hideaway Bar in Lititz. Ivie loved family, cooking, working and living life to the fullest.
