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 & Glenn moved the family to Sealy TX where they made a home, raised their children, and developed many lifelong friendships. On Mother’s Day, she attended church and along with her husband Glenn became a born-again Christian.
In 1979 Iris and Glenn moved to Kosse, Texas, and began working on their new business adventure. In January 1979 the doors to Matchett’s Personal Care Home were opened. Over the next 30 years, countless numbers of disabled Veterans were cared for in their home. After many years of service to disabled Veterans, Iris and Glenn decided to retire for the last time and closed the Matchett Personal Care Home, and devoted all their time to Church, Family, and Friends.
