LEXINGTON - Iris D. Nafziger, 78, Mesa, Ariz., died Thursday (Sept. 18, 2008) at Banner Desert Hospital in Mesa. A private memorial will be at a later date at the Lexington Cemetery, Lexington. Mrs. Nafziger was born Jan. 31, 1930, at the family farm south of Lexington, a daughter of Elvin H. and Retta Beasley Wick. She married Ray Nafziger on May 14, 1948, in Bloomington. Surviving are two nieces, Jeanene (Roger) Payne, Lexington, and Jean (Bob) Nesbit, Goleta, Calif.; and a sister-in-law, Shirley (Wick) Newberry, also of Lexington. She is also survived by many great-nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, and two brothers, Ora M. Wick and Elvin M. Wick Waldie. Elvin L. Wick, a nephew, also preceded her. Iris attended Lexington schools before graduating from Bloomington High School in 1948. Due to her husband's health problems, they moved to Mesa, Ariz., in 1960, where Iris worked as a secretary at Motorola for 33 years. Ray and Iris loved camping and traveled all over the United States, enjoying many adventures. After Ray's death, Iris continued to travel in her motor home across country to visit family in Illinois and California. Over the years, her pets also played such an important part of her life. Thanks to the wonderful care given during the last year by the staff of a group of healthcare professionals, she was able to stay in her home and continue to enjoy her cat and dog.
