7-23-21 Ivadenne Hatfield.jpg

Ivadeene Hatfield

Ivadeene Marie Hatfield, 89, of West Williamson, died peacefully Friday, July 16, 2021, at her residence.

She was born in Lenore, Aug. 16, 1931, a daughter of the late Smith Baisden and Frankie Evans Baisden.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Ralph Hatfield; and her siblings, Clayton “Cap” Baisden, Harley “Bull” Baisden, Christine “Cricket” Whitt, Greg Baisden, and most recently, her sister, Waville Dempsey.

She was a longtime Mingo County educator and a former assistant superintendent of Mingo County Schools. She was educated in Mingo County, graduating from Lenore High School 1948. She continued her education at Concord College where she earned a bachelor’s degree in education. She later completed a master’s degree in administration at Marshall University.  

It was impossible for Ivadenne to stay away from the school children that she enjoyed being near. Long after she officially retired, she continued to work in temporary and substitute positions that were very much full-time positions. She was simply passionate about education and loved her occupation.

Ivadenne was also very active in the church, social and civic circles of her community. Prior to moving to Williamson in 1978, she was a member of the Gilbert Presbyterian Church and the Gilbert Honeysuckle Garden Club. After moving to Williamson to be closer to her husband’s work, she became a very devoted member of the First Presbyterian Church of Williamson. She was also a very active and enthusiastic member of the Williamson Wildwood Garden Club. She often arranged for members of the garden club to enjoy day trips to interesting venues and locations. While she resisted accepting an official position in the club, she was very much a leader in the success of the club’s activities.

Ivadenne loved people and enjoyed a wide circle of friends throughout her life. She was so enjoyable to be with and near. She easily found humor and she laughed often. She was also very compassionate and empathetic. She accepted people as they were and believed that everyone had the right to express themselves as they saw fit. She was without judgement; she simply loved, leaving the rest to God.

Ivadenne was an elegant and charismatic woman who shared the best of herself throughout her life. She was an adoring wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. Her family was her treasure on earth, and she will be sorely missed and held close in the hearts of everyone who had the good fortune of knowing her.

Ivadenne is survived by her beloved daughter, LaDonna Hatfield; her granddaughter, Dani Lynn-Marie (Paul Adams) Adams; her great-granddaughter, Chloe Lynn-Marie Dingess; her step-granddaughter, Cami Adams; two sisters, Eunice “Minnie” Ford and Virginia “Penney” Parsons; two brothers, Bill “Flip” Baisden and Guy (Karen) Baisden; her dear nephew, Jimmy Chris Whitt; many other beloved nieces and nephews; her neighbor, Benny Burchett; and a wide circle of loving friends and neighbors.

Ivadenne’s directives were that no services were to be held and her body be entombed at once. Her directives have been followed and she was entombed with her husband, Ralph, at Palm Memorial Gardens in Matheny. Arrangements were under the direction of Weaver Mortuary of West Williamson.

This is a paid obituary.
