Your mother was a dear friend to our Aunt Dorothy Mowen. I remember Iris giving us cookies every Christmas and we always looked forward to it. She was a beautiful lady inside and out. God bless your family always. Randy and Stefanie Graham Boonville MO

My mother was Helen Huckabey Cassady Chapman. She and Iris were friends when they were younger. I remember when I was a child my mom was always glad when Iris stopped by. My mother passed in 2007 at the age of 91. My deepest sympathy to the family. How blessed we were to have our mothers in our lives for so long. May God comfort you at this time.
