Our mother, Vicky Lee Oliveria, was one of the strongest most courageous and brave people we know. We lost her on Thursday, June 14, 2018, after a battle with pneumonia, systemic lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and Raynaud's phenomenon. Vicky was the daughter of John Olveria and Mary Parsons Olveria. She was born on February 12, 1953, in San Antonio, Texas and moved to Iowa in 1969 with her mother after her parents were divorced. Vicky attended and graduated from Colfax High School in 1971 and went on to the Iowa School of Beauty for a degree in cosmetology. In June 1873, she married Terry R. Ingraham and had two children; Kristina Ingraham and Joel Ingraham. Vicky got out of cosmetology to start working as a customer service representative at Mediacom in Des Moines, Iowa. Vicky and Terry divorced in 1996. She then remarried in November of 2003 to Patrick Iverson of South Dakota. She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. She will be missed greatly every day. She also loved shopping, garage sailing, doing crafts and bowling.
Vicky is survived by her two children; Kristina and Joel; six grandchildren; Zevin Lander, Addison Kochheiser, Kaytlynn Ingraham, Jayden, Blake and Mitchell Iverson; uncle and aunt Russ and Caradene Parsons of Algona, Iowa, cousins, Trish and Randy Parsons of Algona, Iowa; and aunt and uncle, Barbara and Raymond Dvorak of Arlington, Texas, cousins, Reed Dvorak and Reve Dvorak-Hissong of Texas; and a dear friend, Jolene Vaux. Also surviving are her ex-husband, Terry Ingraham of Colfax; her ex-husband, Patrick Iverson and her step children, Anthony and Carolyn Iverson of Minnesota. She was preceded in death by her parents.
A memorial gathering will be held on Monday, June 18, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. at Terry Ingrahams house. 312 W Pleasant Street Colfax, Iowa.
I am sure you don't remember, but I used to babysit Kristina and Joel. Vicky was such a wonderful person and I enjoyed knowing the family! I am sorry for your loss!
We are so sorry for your loss. We got our beloved shih zu, Willaby, from your mother almost 17 years ago. We met your mother and Willaby in the parking lot at Wal-mart. He was our first child and the best dog ever. He passed away in January and are sure that he welcomed her when they met again. We are so thankful that she shared him with us. Again very sorry for your loss. Ryan and Laura Richardson
So sorry for your loss Kristina and Joel I graduated with your mom She will be missed she was a good friend prayers to you both
