Iris and Frank met in Hammond BC. They eloped to Fort St. John and were married on September 22, 1961. They moved back to Hammond before moving to Victoria in 1962. Iris then moved to Caycuse (Camp 6) in 1974.
In 1993 Iris and Franklin purchased their current residence in Lake Cowichan. While living in Caycuse, Iris enjoyed her “gift of artwork” doing ceramics and painting. Iris was an active member for many years in the Youbou TOP’s group and served many executive positions, enjoyed many PRD’s and fall rallies, most of all enjoying the camaraderie and support of the group. Iris was a member of the Cowichan Lake Golden Agers Society and enjoyed volunteering in the kitchen and with yearly bazaars. She enjoyed the ladies sewing group and Pat’s exercises at the Seniors Centre.
