Iris June Catron was born in Conroe, Texas on August 23, 1938 to Frances Earl and Ethel Vale Catron.

Iris met the love of her life Glenn Matchett on September 10, 1953, when he came home on leave from the U. S. Navy. Iris and Glenn got engaged on June 14, 1954 and married on March 15, 1955. They had 3 wonderful children whom they devoted their life to and adored.

After marriage, Iris and Glenn began their lives in Duson, Louisiana. In 1970 Iris and Glenn moved the family to Sealy, TX, where they made a home, raised their children, and developed many lifelong friendships.
