Her life revolved around her family she adored. Some of her greatest memories included traveling with her girls.

In her early years, she attended schools in Wichita Falls, as well as in New Mexico, and graduated from the Draughon’s Business School in Wichita Falls.

Fred and Iris’ three daughters describe their mother as Godly, brave, strong and loving.

Survivors are her daughters, Shanon Morton and husband Charles of Wichita Falls, Debbie Wineinger and husband Doug of Wichita Falls, and Freddie Janell Allison and husband Jimmie of Rock Hill, South Carolina.
