Iris Schiers

March 18, 1926 — January 15, 2011

Iris Schiers Weddle of Palisades, Idaho died January 15, 2011 in Provo, Utah

Iris was born March 18, 1926 in Victor, Idaho in the family's one room log cabin, the 5th child born to David E. And Lydia Zohner Schiers.

She graduated from Teton High School in 1944 and from B.Y.U. in 1957 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. She lived in Salt Lake City, Utah until she and Jesse Weddle were married at Jackson, Wyoming on September 3, 1958. One day and one year later their only child, a son, was born September 4, 1959. In 1964 Iris and her son moved to Scottsdale, Arizona where Iris became a computer programmer, one of the pioneers of computer programming. This was a very challenging and exciting career for her. First at Motorola and then for the State of Arizona.

Iris was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints all of her life. She served faithfully in all her callings to include; Ward Missionary in Los Angeles, Relief Society President at BYU during both her Jr. and Sr. Years as well as Sr. Resident of her dorm in her Sr. year. After graduating she was hired by Brother Gordon B. Hinckley, then the head of the missionary Dept., to be his assistant, another very exciting and rewarding job. While she was there the New Zealand and London Temples were dedicated. Iris loved the temples and attended whenever and wherever she could from Washington D.C. to San Diego, California.

She is survived by her son B. Paul Weddle and 3 grandchildren: Bradley Paul Jr.; Jessica Lynn and Michael David of Saratoga Springs Utah; Sisters Venus Lauritzen of Utah; Grace McKay of Boise, Idaho and Margo Lewis of Victor Idaho; Brothers Earnest Schiers of Victor, Idaho; Doug Schiers of Salt Lake City, Utah; and numerous aunts, cousins, nieces and nephews scattered all over the West.
