M. Iva Bradley

Bradley, M. Iva, 94, Cresson, passed away May 31, 2022 at Martha’s Manor, Lilly. Born May 7, 1928, St. Augustine, daughter of the late Michael and Mary A. (Luther) McDermott. Preceded in death by her beloved husband of 65 years, Michael; son, Gary Bradley; siblings, Edgar, Elizabeth Ludwig, Vesta Boyle, Edgar and Joseph McDermott; and granddaughter, Maria Bradley. Survived by her son, Kenneth (Phyllis) Bradley, Cresson; daughter, Susan (Bernard) Bettwy, Cresson; daughter-in-law, Kathryn Bradley, Cresson; siblings, Dee Dumm, Ebensburg; John (Ann) McDermott, Delaware; grandchildren, Michael (Sarah) Bradley, Ebensburg; James (Stacy) Bradley, Cresson; Steven Bradley, Portage; Denise (Christopher) Ness, West Chester; Christopher (Cassandra) Bettwy, Baltimore, MD; Angela (Nicholas) Bernardo, Cranford, NJ; great-grandchildren, Isaac, Henry, Max, Katie and Nicholas Bradley, Theodore and Benjamin Ness, and Cameron Bettwy and Dominic Bernardo. Iva enjoyed a happy childhood on a farm in St. Augustine, which later became Prince Gallitzin State Park. She moved to Cresson to attend Mount Aloysius College and met her future husband across the street. Iva was by nature a quiet person, listening more that speaking. She also had a dry sense of humor and her observations and comments would have everyone laughing. Family was very important to her and she enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her siblings. Special thank you to the staff at Martha’s Manor for their compassionate care for our mother.
