Iris Kathleen Swinfen

Send to a Friend

This is in memory of a very special lady and Aunt, who has now sadly passed away after a terrible stroke she had 8 years ago.
She has bravely, as always, been living in nursing care since this happened having had a peg feed fitted and only having the use of her right hand to communicate which she did very clearly with a thumbs up or down when asked or needing something.
She always had a smile for everyone and there were many days she was unwell and in pain.
Her love for the R.A.F. was something she treasured often talking about the best years of her life the time serving with the friends she made.
She was very proud to have worn the uniform and always had great respect for all the forces. The R.A.F. also supported her when she lost her beloved husband Fred giving her the comfort and kindness she needed just before she was taken ill, and supporting them both through Freds cancer.
