Iris M. Lozeau, 86, of Oak Park died on Nov. 25, 2012 at the University of Illinois Medical Center in Chicago. She worked for 34 years at the Oak Park Township office before her retirement in 2006.

Iris was such a warm and wonderful woman and also the kind of ideal dedicated public servant we always hope to have in Oak Park in her days serving in the Oak Park Township. She was a great lady.

Long may she reign the Queen of Day in our Village.... likely the only (or probably one of the few) who participated in every DAY, all 39. She was warm, funny, SASSY, and most of all, genuine and caring. She will be missed!!! Thanks for everything, I!
