Iris was a proud Welsh woman who lived a life filled with love, laughter, songkindness, and grace. 

Born in Abertidwr and raised in Caerphilly, Wales, Iris was a cherished sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend. Throughout her long and fulfilling life, she touched the hearts of all who knew herHer songs intertwined with the whispers of nature as she embarked on her beloved walks, leaving behind a symphony of memories etched in every step she took.
