Obituary for Iris Narvetta Jeanne Wicks

Iris Narvetta Jeanne Wicks, 81, of Terre Haute died Wednesday, August 14, 2019 in Union Hospital. She was born November 10, 1937 in Clay County, IN to Merl and Rosa Kent.

Iris is survived by her husband, Bill Wicks; two daughters, Terry Strouse (Ken) of Redondo Beach, CA, and Sherry Hydrick (Chuck) of Prospect, TN; grandsons, Scott Strouse and Chris Strouse; an aunt, Jeanne Lawson; several close cousins; and cherished friends. She was preceded in death by her parents Rosa and Merl Kent and a sister, Sandy Kent.

Iris enjoyed painting, especially landscapes. She was a voracious reader and enjoyed visiting the Vigo County Public Library and reading volumes (and more). She also enjoyed visiting art museums, and browsing at antique shops. She was a longtime employee of Columbia House. Iris was a caregiver at heart, having cared for her mother and sister before their deaths. She was inseparable from her special dog “Bentley”.
