Ivah's Story

BAILEYVILLE & TOPSFIELD - Ivah Althea Daggett, 82, was surrounded by her family when she was reunited with her husband of 57 years Charles "Chick" Daggett, January 19, 2015 at a Bangor hospital. Ivah was born April 29, 1932 to Therman and Albina (Cochran) LaPlant in Codyville. She spent her childhood in Codyville and attended Lee Academy where she later served on the board of directors. Ivah enjoyed serving her community, she was a member of the Topsfield school board for many years, a past member of the Eastern Star Royal Chapter No. 145 in Princeton and owned and operated, with Chick, both the Charles Daggett Inc. logging company and then Daggett's Country Market from 1982 until 2007, both in Topsfield. She loved to go square dancing with Chick in her younger years and will be remembered as a wonderful cook by not only her family but also by the Topsfield community as she baked a countless number of pies and desserts for her store and community suppers.
