Iris Frances Ackerly was my aunt, the younger sister of my father James.

She was a presence during my childhood in London visiting my family several times, and when we emigrated to New Zealand she also came there, even to my wedding in 1987.

Like myself she retained a great love of our homeland and the last time I saw her was in 2010 at her school friends house in London.

She was a wonderful, beautiful person who loved my brother and I dearly. I know she will be at peace now she is reunited with her beloved parents, siblings and husband.

I love her now and always.
Always in my heart.

I met Iris around 1998. She and her sister Maisie had met my grandparents at their Sunday Hardee's breakfast rituals. In the years following my grandmother's death, Iris became a wonderful friend to my grandfather - and to our entire family. She brought great joy and happiness to his life, even after his lung cancer re-emerged. When he passed from cancer in 1999, Iris was a great comfort to our family.

Thank you, Iris, for the friendship you showed to my grandfather. You made his last years very special. I know it meant the world to him - and to all of us as well.

My thoughts and sympathies are with all of Iris' family and friends.

I met my "Auntie Iris" when I was very young, as she was my next door neighbor for many years. She was always a delight, and I have many fond memories of tea parties at her home and exploring her beautifully landscaped back yard. I will never forget the joy she brought to my family's lives. She truly was a wonderful person, and I express my deepest condolences to her family. Rest in peace, Auntie Iris.

Iris was my next door neighbor for years back in the 80's. She remained a lifelong friend. I am deeply saddened by her passing. She was the sweetest, kindest lady and I am lucky to have know her.

Iris was a very sweet lady that I had the pleasure of meeting numerous times while visiting my friend Nancy Ware. I enjoyed our breakfasts at Hardees when I visited Jacksonville. It was always a pleasure visiting with Iris and her late sister Maisie. Rest In Peace.
