Obituary for Iris June Holton

Iris June (Hildebrant) Holton, 90, of Midland, went home to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Monday, April 9, 2018. She was born on April 26, 1927, daughter of the late Sherman Hildebrant and Charlotte (Pelch) Hildebrant Sadler, and stepfather Earnest Sadler. Iris married Francis Holton on September 11, 1946, he passed away on September 27, 1979.

Caring for her loved ones was always the focus and greatest joy of Iris’ life. Her children and grandchildren were greatly blessed by her steadfast devotion and active involvement in their lives. Through love, faith, humor, strength, wisdom and selfless sacrifice, she created a lasting legacy that will forever impact her family.

Iris is survived by her daughter Susan Fradette of Midland; sons Dennis (Barb) Holton of Corydon, IN; Gary Holton of Fennville, MI; son-in-law Carl Phillips of Bay City, MI; 12 grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great grandchildren.

In addition to her parents and husband, Iris was predeceased in death by twin daughters Valene Holton and Valerie (Holton) Phillips, brothers and sister, Gordon Hildebrant, Myron Sadler and Margaret (Hildebrant) Shock.

The family would like to express their gratitude to her caregivers at Heartland Hospice, especially her nurse Jennifer and CNA Janice, and their church family at Christian Celebration Center for their compassionate care, support, prayers and love.

A private family celebration of her life is planned for a later date with Ware-Smith-Woolever Funeral Home handling the arrangements. Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider Christian Celebration Center or the Heartland Hospice Memorial Fund.
