Class of 1943. Iris Helen Ramey. ~ ~ ~ ~ Iris Helen Ramey was born on March 23, 1926 in Orofino, Idaho. Her family moved around the country, and she attended high school in New York and Idaho before transferring to BYH for her senior year. She turned 17 just before her graduation from BYH. Her parents were Lloyd Martin Ramey, born in 1895 in Springfield, Missouri. He married Amelia Ann Burbank in 1915 in Pocatello, Idaho. Her father died in 1947 in Brasil. Iris' mother, Amelia Ann Burbank, was born in 1895 in Montrose, Colorado. She died on September 25, 1951 in Los Angeles. Both parents are buried in Redondo Beach, California. She says she didn't do a lot of dating, because she had the goal in mind to become a nurse. High grades were necessary for college entrance. Her children couldn't believe she often studied from 7 pm until 11 pm. Often during high school she received Honorable Mention, and sometimes appeared on the Honor Roll. Iris married Edward Lee Seyfried in 1944, and he did not encourage her to continue in nursing. Iris and Edward had nine children, and raised seven: three boys and four girls. Edward was born on February 11, 1922 in Goff, Idaho. He died on September 20, 1982. His parents were Anton Jacob Seyfried and Elizabeth Lee Soards. "Four people in my family have teaching certificates. We are staunch church members of long standing, and patriotic. "Although it was a church school, Brigham Young High School did not give any different education than the public schools did -- even the one-room schools I sometimes attended -- it was as good as I had ever seen in the public schools. "Somebody must have done something right, because I passed the Civil Service exam with 96 out of a possible 100. "I never taught school, but did teach in Sunday School and Primary at all age levels, sang and taught singing, and taught my own children at home to believe in God, which is where we should start." Iris is an active genealogist, and she has held many other Church positions in a small branch at Riggins, Idaho, and in Odgen, Utah. Her BYH Class of 1943 will celebrate its 65th graduation anniversary in 2008. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Iris Helen (Ramey) Seyfried. On the morning of July 7, 2020, our father, Edward Lee Seyfried, came and collected our mother for a ride into Eternity. Waiting to greet her are her son, Edward Jr., her parents, all of her siblings, and many other loved ones who preceded her in death. Iris was born in Orofino, Idaho, to Lloyd Martin and Amelia Ann (Burbank) Ramey. She was the seventh of nine children. Her father was an engineer/machinist, moving the family around the United States to different construction jobs when she was growing up. This instilled in Iris a love of traveling. Highly intelligent and fiercely independent, she graduated from Brigham Young Academy when she was seventeen and went on to nurses training. In the late summer of 1944, Iris boarded a bus, with her wedding dress, and traveled cross country to Norfolk, Va., where her fianc’e, Ed, was serving in the Navy. They were married Sept. 9, 1944. After Ed’s release from the Navy, the family moved to a small family farm in Riggins, Idaho. Iris was a dedicated nurse, housewife and homemaker who liked to cook, bake, and can fruits and vegetables from the garden. She could make delicious meals from almost anything on the farm. Her wedding and birthday cakes were a work of art. She also spent many years teaching 4-H, helping children learn to raise animals, can foods, bake, sew, and do art work – many years submitting their projects to the Idaho County Fair. Iris had a talent for music and loved to sing. She loved her family, her country, and her Savior, Jesus Christ. She was a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where she served in many capacities. Iris liked staying busy. Her favorite place to be was in the Genealogical Library in Salk Lake City, Utah. She had a strong testimony of the importance of finding our ancestors and she had a gift for telling family stories. Iris leaves behind six children: Bessie (Don) Huefner; Anton (Jennie) Seyfried; Aneita Seyfried; Leatha (Wayne) Adams; LaDeene Bedard; Willis (Juliann) Seyfried. She also leaves behind 30 grandchildren and step-grandchildren; 45 great-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren, and several great-greats on the way. We will forever remember and cherish our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, cousin, and friend. Her spirit will live on in the beautiful memories she left behind. The family would like to express their thanks to Dr. Duke, and the staff at Legacy House, for their care and compassion in assisting Iris over the past several years. Due to current circumstances, a graveside service will be held Oct. 3, 2020, in Riggins. Source.
