Community mourns crash victim

4th September 2008
From The Daily Sun, Buderim

Buderim resident Iris Williams died in a car accident at Woombye on September 2, 2008. She is pictured here in a photo dated June 12, 2005, after receiving an Order of Australia medal.

Iris Williams was always the last person to leave.

That was just the sort of person she was.

She was always there to help clean up, always stayed behind to put things right.

The 72-year-old former teacher had dedicated much of the last three decades to serving her community and news of her death sent shock waves through her family, the groups she served and the people she helped.

A long-time Buderim resident and recipient of an Order of Australia medal in 2005, Mrs Williams was heavily involved with Rhema Radio, the Buderim Uniting Church and was a volunteer with the SES and president of the Buderim branch of the Red Cross as well as the former Red Cross regional president for the Sunshine Coast.
