Iris M. Flynn, of Wilmington, NC, formerly of Somers and Yonkers, NY, died after a brief illness on May 21, 2021. She was 84.

Iris was born in Brooklyn, NY to Booth Clayton and Olive Mae (Pique) Ingram. She was raised in Yonkers, NY and graduated from Gorton H.S. Iris married her high school sweetheart, James E.

In later years they moved to Heritage Hills in Somers, NY and then to Wilmington, NC.

During her career Iris worked as an Executive Assistant for the Gestetner and Loral Corporations in Yonkers and later followed her passion as a floral designer for Flowers by Carol in Dobbs Ferry, NY.

Iris is survived by her husband James E. Flynn (of the Flynn Memorial Home in Yonkers, NY) and her children, James E. Flynn, Jr. (Theresa), of Tarrytown, NY, Elizabeth A. Flynn, of Wilmington, NC, and Timothy J. Flynn (Lisa) of Croton-on-Hudson, NY. She is also survived by her grandchildren Christopher, Stephanie, Valerie, Clayton, Faythe, Jack and great granddaughter Melody; her sisters Jacqueline Morris and Katherine Cryeski, as well as many nieces and nephews.
