Yris was a love and her laughter and goodness is a cherished memory. We had so many good times. No one from the Golden Oldies will ever forget her performance of the hula. She made the world a much better place by her presence and brightened the lives of all she touched. She will be missed.

O dear Yris! She was such a good friend and a very special person. Yris, me and Fe, the 3 Musketeers! We all worked for Smith Barney at that time and went to many lunches, dinners, and plays together. One day we went to see Stayin’ Alive at the movie theatre next to our office. Yris was dancing out of the theatre when it was over! She loved to dance and sing. She showed me videos of her performances at nursing homes and at parties. Yris took good care of her family members when they needed her. She had such compassion for those in need including animals. She always asked me how my cat Honey was doing. Now she is with Jesus whom she loved deeply, and she is reunited with her family in Heaven. Watch over us all, Yris, until we meet again. Love, Susan ❤️
