Family and friends will unite at St Wilfrid’s Church in Cowplain at 1pm to pay tribute to Iris Peters, who died aged 92 on April 1. 

The mum-of-four shepherded learners at Padnell Junior School across the road for 20 years before retiring in 1993. 

She later returned to the site to help teach children to read.
