Iris L. Crawford passed away unexpectedly at home on Thursday, September 7, 2017.  She was born and raised in Long Branch, New Jersey and was the youngest of four children.  Parents Ernest and Ruth (Darby) Crawford, sister Sharon and brother Ramon predeceased Iris.

After graduating Long Branch High School, Iris went to work at Fort Monmouth, where she stayed for 28 years before relocating to Aberdeen, MD when the Fort moved there.  She stayed in Maryland until 2012, when she got sick and had to retire.  She had worked a total of 33 years for the Federal Government, as a System Supply Analyst.  Iris then returned to her Jersey roots.

She rescued her soulmate, Jack, a daschund 10 years ago when he was just 5 years old.  They came to be best friends and looked out for each other.

Iris was kind, generous, sensitive and compassionate.  She could always lighten a difficult situation with her sense of humor and could make you at least smile, if not laugh heartily.  Her laughter and smile will be missed.

Surviving are a sister, Joan Crawford and aunt Catherine Darby, both of Long Branch, niece Megan Crawford of North Carolina and nephews, Jason Crawford, of South Carolina and Arthur Badie Jr., of New York.  A host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends both in state and out of state will miss Iris, as will her beloved, Jack.
