Obituary for Iris Kay Smith

Iris Kay Smith, 78, of Keensburg, Illinois, passed away Thursday, April 22, 2022, at Wabash General Hospital, surrounded by the love of her family. She was born on December 12, 1943, in Friendsville, Illinois, the daughter of Norman and Virginia (McClellan) McClane. She was married for sixty wonderful years to her husband, Jerry Lee Smith, and he survives.

Iris devoted herself to being a loving homemaker and raising her family. She really enjoyed the outdoors, tending to her lovely flower garden and sitting on her porch to watch the birds and squirrels feed. Iris was a hobbyist who enjoyed making jewelry for her family and friends, cooking a good meal, and writing cookbooks. The Smokey Mountains was her favorite vacation place to enjoy with her husband, Jerry, and their family. Iris loved her family dearly, especially her grandson, Skyler. Iris was of Pentecostal Faith, and she will be missed by all who knew her.

Iris leaves behind her loving husband, Jerry; daughter, Kelley Jean Hamilton and husband, Edward of Bridgeport, IL; one grandson, Skyler Joe Edgin of St. Francisville, IL; one sister, Ruth (Joe) Smith of Gulfport, MS; one sister-in-law, Debbie Schwartz; and several nieces and nephews.

Iris was preceded in death by her parents; one son, Danny Lee Smith; two brothers, Rodney McClane, and Rick McClane.
