Iris Mae Buettner, nee Nagel, 86, of Waterloo, IL, died November 24, 2022, in St. Louis, MO. She was born May 30, 1936, in Renault, IL.

    She is survived by her children Marc Buettner and Dawn (Don) Sutter; grandchildren Shane Buettner, Abbey Sutter and Amanda (Jordan) Burdg; great-grandchildren Olivia, Ava, Lily, Cynthia, and Amelia; as well as cousins, nieces, and nephews.

    She is preceded in death by her husband Victor T. Buettner; son David M. "Big Bitts" Buettner; and parents George F. & Nelda Nagel  (nee Studt).

    Iris was a member of St. Paul UCC in Waterloo, IL. She also belonged to a local cancer survivor group after showing resilience and perseverance through her own battles. In her professional years, Iris worked for the Western Egyptian Head Start Program and later sold real estate. She was extremely rooted in family history and enjoyed researching genealogy and even created a family cookbook. One of Iris’s favorite pastimes was playing cards with her friends. However, she most enjoyed spending quality time with her beloved family. She was an endearing and supportive mother and an adoring grandmother and great-grandmother.
