May 29, 1936 — May 4, 2018
Iris Libby Neibaur Hunter was born in Newdale, Idaho. She attended Teton Elementary School and then went on to attend Sugar Salem High School and graduated in 1954. After high school, she attended Ricks College in Rexburg, Idaho.
After college, she obtained a job at Idaho First National Bank in Idaho Falls, Idaho and worked there until 1961. She then moved to Provo, Utah, and continued in the banking business.
Iris met her sweetheart, Keith, through her sister Karryn, who was dating Keith's brother. Iris and Keith married in February of 1962, in the Idaho Falls LDS temple.
Their first son, Richard, was born in Provo, Utah, at the end of that year. After Keith graduated from college, the little family moved to Eugene and were blessed with their first daughter, Melissa, followed by their next son, Greg who was born in Corvallis. After a few years, they moved to Albany, where three additional children were born.
Once her children were in school, Iris returned to work and worked for many years at South Albany High School until her retirement.
She was a life-long member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Iris was heavily involved in church and community service. She served in many capacities, including Stake Primary President and Portland LDS Temple worker. Iris will be remembered by many whose lives were touched by her sweet, patient love and innumerable acts of quiet service.
