  1. It is with great sadness that I learn about the passing of Iris Lochner. She was a gem! I belonged to the Norman, Oklahoma Chapter of the Embroiderers Guild of America (EGA) with her. I was lucky enough to know Iris from 2002-2007 when I lived in Lawton and would attend the meetings in Norman. She was always willing to share her knowledge and encourage me as a new stitcher.
    Please know that Iris will be remembered with great fondness. She was a wonderful woman and those who knew her were truly blessed.
    With deepest sympathy to her family and friends,

  2. I have known Iris most of the 25 years I have lived in Oklahoma City. She was a great source of both needlework techniques and Oklahoma history. We became close friends over the past 12 years as we would go to various needlework functions and shops. We enjoyed getting together with other friends to stitch and do lunch. I consider myself very fortunate to have known her and spent time with her.

  3. I’ve known Iris every since I worked for the state hospital when I was a kid. She was always fun to be around. Her dust bowl stories were great, my parents grew up a bit farther north than Fargo and to here stories from a bit older perspective was interesting. I got to know her much better once I joined the stitching group. Her work was beautiful and she taught me a lot. The few Lake Murray Retreats that my husband and I attended were a blast! She always called him her boyfriend and they would have drinks in our room in the evenings. To say she will be missed is an understatement.
    Goodbye and God’s speed dear friend.
