Ivy Munion, past president of the American Society of Irrigation Consultants, died May 23. Munion had been battling cancer the past several years.
“ASIC will always be grateful for her contributions to the industry as an untiring advocate for responsible water use in the landscape and for her profession. She was a trail blazer, starting in the industry in 1989 as a draftsperson. As a self-professed irrigation geek, she spent a lifetime of learning and giving back to her profession, and was the co-owner, then sole owner of ISC Group, a consulting firm in Livermore, California. She was the first female President of ASIC – a role that brought her great satisfaction even while fighting her illness.”
