June 15, 1942 ~ December 16, 2022
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Iris, on December 16, 2022, with her family by her side.
Iris was born and raised in Regina. It was there that she met and married her husband Jerry. They celebrated 60 years of marriage earlier this year.
Together they were blessed with four children: Dean (Linda), Grant (Kathy), Marj (Mike), and David (Dione). Iris loved and was very proud of her nine grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.
Besides being a mother, she was employed at Canada Post for 16 years. In spite of a serious heart condition from birth, three open heart surgeries over her lifetime, she led a long and healthy life.
Iris had an amazing mind: very quick to analyze and solve problems. Anything she put her mind to she did exceptionally well. To name a few: cooking, baking, gardening, needlework, playing cards, and
household budgeting. She also loved travelling, fishing, shore lunches, and camping. Her scope of interests seemed to be unlimited. Her contribution to her family was priceless!
To honour Iris’s wishes, there will be a private family celebration of her life at a later date.
