Although I missed Iona’s service this afternoon I spent the afternoon talking on the phone with old Austin friends sharing our memories of Iona from our grammar and high school days that for us seem like just yesterday. She was always fun, kind and open to everyone - just a good friend to have. And happily in our adult lives we kept in touch and had lunches and phone calls to share how each of our lives was going. She was a happy, loving person and I’m sure a great teacher and wife to Marty. And indeed he was a wonderful husband to her. So sorry for her loss and the difficulties both she and Marty dealt with in recent times. Iona will not be forgotten.
