I loved Miss Iris! She was my Mom's first cousin (MaryEllen Raymo-Shriver) ! Iris and I got on the minute we met! Smart, feisty, funny, strong and just a wonderful friend! We sent Birthday cards back and forth for years, and I miss them to this day! I can't bring myself to take her birthday off my calendar! Pictures below are (Left) at my Nana's (Eleanor Sargent Raymo) 80th birthday party, and (right) at my Mom and Dad's to celebrate, Mom's Nana's and Iris' Birthdays, which were all in October. Rest in peace Iris! I will miss you! Holly (Keys) Mayotte

Iris and Chuck were long time friends of my parents. For many years Matt was like a little brother and also a friend. One summer our daughter, Clea, attended the Crane summer program for young musicians. As the youngest camper I was nervous for Clea and so I sought out Iris to check in on her. Iris, a music lover herself, visited Clea, took her for ice cream and attended her concerts as we were too far away to do this. In my continuing visits over the years, Iris always asked about Clea and was always so pleased with Clea’s continued participation in music. I will truly miss our infrequent, brief but always light-hearted visits reminiscing about family times together.
