Ivah May Green Lucas, 91, entered Heavens gates peacefully on the morning of August 3, 2022.
Ivah was born January 10, 1931 in Mount Airy, MD, to the late Lawrence Edward Green and Rachel Henrietta Cain. Ivah was preceded in death by her husband Raymond Lee Lucas, six brothers, six sisters and a grandson, Matthew Lucas.
Ivah graduated from Mount Airy High School and worked as a telephone operator for many years. Later in life, she worked at the 7th street Medical Supply Store in Frederick.
Over the years she volunteered in many positions including Sunday School teacher, Hospice, Church clothes closet, and mission trips with the church groups. Ivah enjoyed being active with the Faith Baptist Church, especially the dinner events.
Ivah enjoyed square dancing and listening to music. She belonged to a bowling league and strength training group. She especially loved spending time with family.
Together, Ivah and Raymond raised 5 boys. Upon retirement in 1971, they moved to Woodhull, New York and bought a beef farm. She was active with the Grange and the Woodhull Church and made many new lifelong friends. In 1986, Ivah and Raymond moved to Brunswick, Maryland to be closer to family. Ivah was an inspiration to others on how she handled being a breast cancer survivor.
