After her children were older, she went to work for the Phenix City Board of Education as an Administrative Secretary until her retirement in 1986. Mrs. Grantham was an accomplished seamstress and produced many beautiful clothing items. She spent many summers freezing and canning the abundant harvest from the family garden Mr. Hubert raised. Ms. Ivy enjoyed waking on Sunday afternoons around Idle Hour Park, was extremely fond of chocolates and never missed her morning and afternoon tea.

Ms. Ivy was preceded in death by her parents, her beloved husband, Hubert F. Grantham, a sister, Iris Prins, brother, Maurice Bundy and a son-in-law, Steve Manis.

Survivors include her two children, Linda G. Manis, Smiths Station, AL and Morris S. Grantham (Lenora), Phenix City, AL; several nieces, nephews, extended family, friends and her three grand-dogs, Lexi, Thor and Maxwell also survive.
