To Nancy and Tina, the Zeigler family is sorry for the loss of your mother, Iris. Aunt Bessie and Uncle Maurice often told stories of Iris and shared them with our grandparents. We miss that generation so much. Aunt Bessie always talked about the Deiwert girls since Tom knew you both from Hardee's. Take care and treasure your memories of your mother-we do always.

My sympathy to the family. I was in sorority with Iris and I always looked forward to seeing her at Council meetings and convention. We had so much fun together at these gatherings.

My heart goes out to all of you. So many memories of Aunt Iris. I spent alot of time at her house when we would go to the farm. May she rest in peace.

Jr. and Iris were our neighbors when my family moved to Decatur County in 1976. Iris and I had lots of good times together at card clubs, sorority, home ec club and shopping. My thoughts and prayers go out to Jr. and his family at this difficult time.
