R.I.P. - Iris Armstrong (Funeral)
The funeral for Iris will be at Lincoln Crematorium at 1510 on Tuesday 1st May. After the funeral you are invited to the Waggon & Horses at Branston.
Sadly, Iris passed away peacefully in Lincoln County Hospital, aged 89 years, on Tuesday 3rd April. She learned to ring as a teenager around Windsor and often recalled the honour and excitement of being able to ring on VE day. She very much enjoyed ringing outings, and it was on one of these that she met her husband, Ted.
On their retirement, Iris and Ted moved to Lincoln where Ted became a member of the Cathedral company. Although Iris had stopped ringing by this time, she was often to be found wielding a teapot at ringersí teas and maintained a deep interest in all that was happening on the ringing scene right up to the very last.
Our sympathy goes to daughter, Gillian and her family.
Funeral details will be published when known.
