Iris's true passion was for her family, she worked as a legal secretary for her entire career. After she retired she became an avid Bridge player and golfer. She also curled for over 35 years. Iris was an amazing listener and her door was always open for a meal or a slice of pie served on her favourite Old Country Rose China. Iris was well known for her infectious laugh and feisty personality. She brought comfort and a sense of calm to those around her. She gave the best hugs and loved being around people.
In keeping with Iris's wishes cremation has taken place.
For those who wish, memorial contributions can be made in memory of Iris to Alzheimer Society of Canada.
Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and will be missed beyond measure.

Words can not express how I feel. Darlene and family I just lost my Mom on October 19 and this just adds to my sorrow. I know how deeply she loved her family. She was a mother to me when I was in Winnipeg. She fought for what she thought was right and didn't back down. We shared many a good times at the golf course. I thought of her often over the years. Visited when in Winnipeg up until her move. She will be dearly missed. My heart goes out to you all. RIP my dear special friend. Lots of memories to hold close. Hugs to all. - Posted by: Joan Sandell (Friend) on: Dec 04, 2021
