Iona was a very strong and Confident Woman who will let you know what was on her mind ,yet she had loads of friends. She truly loved her family and especially those grandchildren. She was a good cook and she knew it. She gave advice to me and others regarding short cuts in cooking. Most importantly she was a child of God worshipping her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Deepest sympathy goes to the entire Franklin, Augustus, and Allen families. May the precious memories that you shared with her be a comfort to you in the days that lie ahead.
