Iris was born on January 4, 1929 in Peace River, Alberta. She spent her school years in Alliance, Alberta before moving to BC with her family in 1947. Iris met Wilfred in 1948 in Cawston, BC and they were married on April 17, 1950. They lived in Cawston until 1957 when they moved to Spences Bridge. In 1976 they retired home to Cawston. Iris moved to Blind Bay in 1987 to care for her parents.

Iris was an amazing artist and a nature lover with an eye for detail.

She would read a book on any topic and always had time for a visit and a cup of coffee. She was happiest on the back of a horse, be it breaking a wild one or pushing cattle.
