Iris was very good to all of the Ballinger and Benson families as I'm certain she was to all of the families back home. Iris marched to the beat of a very different drum. A loving, self sufficient lady that taught her children to live life much the same that she and her incredible husband did. I hope they are dancing today.

Mike, Suzy & Becky,
Iris will be missed by all that have been lucky enough to have met her. All the fond memories especially the big smile and laughter of hers while all was gathered around the piano.
