Iris was born in Turlock. Iris had recently retired from her position as branch manager at Umpqua Bank in Copperopolis. Iris loved to cook, entertain and decorate. No one ever went hungry at her parties. She also loved to entertain her guests by playing piano. Iris made people laugh and shared her giant heart with those she loved.
Iris was a woman of great strength, but most importantly great faith. It brings great comfort to know she is now in the arms of Jesus.
