    Barbara and family, Please know that we are praying for your dear family. Barbara, I’m sending you a hug right now and this was not the obituary I was to discover (Barbara knows what I mean). I wish we had seen this sooner so we could have attended the funeral.

    I remember you Barbara & Ivo from working in the Costume Shop at Pioneer Theatre. I remember someone calling and asking for Mr. Vo. I was just starting school at the U. I am still working there after 41 years. I am so sorry that Ivo had so many health problems. But very impressed with all that he accomplished. I pray that God will bless you & your family with peace & comfort.

  9. So sorry to read about Ivo. I always enjoyed working with him, both at the high school and when he served as a judge for Manti City. He had so many talents and willingly shared them. Take care of yourself during this difficult time. Sincerely, Natasha Madsen
