Ivey "Laddie" Rudolph Owens passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends on Monday, November 20, 2017.
A graveside service will be held at 2:00pm on Wednesday, November 22, in Edgecombe Memorial Park.
Ivey retired from Long Manufacturing in 1998 after years of dedicated service. After retirement Ivey enjoyed sitting in his shop changing tires and helping people that came by. The children of Ivey would like to thank Samaritan’s Purse for all they have done to give Ivey a home where he felt safe. Even though he didn’t get to enjoy it long, he well enjoyed it for the time that he had.
He was born on October 5, 1935 in Wilson, NC to Herman Earl Owens and Mollie Lee Owens. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his sisters, Ginger Faye Adcock, Shirley Adcock; brothers, Herman Lee Owens, Durwood H. Owens; and ex-wife Margaret Bassinger.
Ivey is survived by a loving family which includes his ex-wife, Hazel Owens Harper, of Tarboro; daughters, Cathy O’Neal and Marty, of Williamston, Ivy Vaughn, of Durham, Teresa L. Robinson and Billy, of Pinetops, Connie Gilbert and Billy, of Tarboro; son, Ivey Rudolph Owens, Jr., of Tarboro; sister, Carol Boisvert, of Venice, Florida; brother, Boyce Owens and Joyce, of Tarboro; and a very special care taker, Donna; 10 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
The family will be receiving friends and relatives on Tuesday at Carlisle Funeral Home from 7:00-9:00pm.
Arrangements are by Carlisle Funeral Home, Inc., of Tarboro. Online condolences may be directed to the family by visiting www.carlislefuneralhome.com.

To The Family,
As a volunteer minister I read the obituaries regularly. My goal is to try to bring comfort to the surviving family members during their moments of grief.I did not know Mr.Ivey Rudolph Owens, nor do I know his family, but at times like this I think of the many segments that made up God's original plan for mankind, being happy, showing love for one another, and living forever. Therefore, I would like to offer my deepest condolences to you in the passing of your loved one. God's Word states in part, "there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous."(Acts 24:15) This prophecy, in harmony with many others encourages all of us that our deceased loved ones will be brought back to life to a world where sicknesses, pain, sorrow, and death. will be things of the past. I hope that this information bring you genuine comfort at this most difficult time.
