To Iris' family: I will be unable to attend the service for Iris on Saturday. I am sure she will understand. We will be working cattle. Iris was one of a kind, always thinking about how she could help someone. She and I shared the citizen of the year, and it was quite an honor for me to be honored at the same time. As time passes more and more of the "double cousins" are gone. I think 2 in your family and 2 in mine. They had quite a life, the 2 Woolsey families did. Lots of great stories will be never told. As I always say. "Another library closed." Please know my prayers are with you.

My Aunt Iris
She was four months to the day younger than me.My mother was her Sister Midge.We grew up together as children,teenagers and adults.While we lost touch a few years ago she has always been my thoughts and memories.It is not a surprise to me nor should it be to anyone that knew her that she would be there to help anyone that needed it.Her volunteer work is an example of that.We grew up in a time when if someone needed help be it family,friend or neighbor especially someone new to the neighborhood it was what you did.
So Auntie Rest in Peace.I have always loved you and always will I cherish all the memories I have of you.
To all of her Family Cherish your memories of Her.Mom Grandma,Great Grandma Friend to All.
Her Niece Freida Parker Harris
