Iris Grant Iris GrantADRIAN – Iris Grant, age 53, was taken from this earth by her Merciful Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday morning, October 23, 2011, at Bixby medical Center.

She is survived by her husband, Roy Grant, whom she married March 7, 1981, siblings Barb (Gayle) Radant, Cindy Russ, Joseph Russ, two nieces and one nephew. She was preceded in death by her parents, with her mother passing just 6 months ago. Also left to miss her will be very special longtime friends, Les and Peggy Snead, and her church family from Jesus Is Lord Ministries where she and Roy were well-respected Ushers, always ready to lend a hand to anyone in need of a ride or help of any kind. Iris loved her family and friends very dearly and her favorite pastime was crocheting afghans for those she loved. Iris was employed at the Daily Telegram for 8 years as a foot route newspaper carrier with responsibility for 4 routes. She wanted to do her routes even when she was ill, not wanting anyone to have their paper delivered in the wrong place or rubber banded when they preferred it folded. Her customers were always on her heart and mind. She had previously worked for 20 years at Goodwill Industries in Adrian.
