TUCK, Iris Doreen (nee Cooper) - Was called home to be with her Lord on Monday, July 13, 2020, while surrounded by the love of her family.
After 30 years she is now reunited with her patient soulmate and best friend, Chauncey Tuck.
ris will be welcomed by her loved ones that went before her; her mother and father, Elizabeth and Jack Cooper; brothers Leonard, Sidney and John; sister Dorothy; sons Glenn (Susanne) and Byron (Karen); and granddaughter Teegan.
Iris is survived by her children Kimberley (Anthony), Andrea (Larry), Patricia (Mike), Carol (predeceased Ron), Wendy (Tony) and Dale (predeceased Leny). She was the inspirational and tender-loving Nana to her grandchildren Brooke, Kyle, Lesley, Melanie, Brett, Kelly, Josh, Brittney, Cory, Cathy, Christine, Greg, Mark, Stephen, Tanya, Jason, Lawrence and Deborah; and numerous great-grandchildren.
Iris was born on March 20, 1929 in London, England. She began her nursing career in 1946 of which took her to various hospitals throughout England. After immigrating to Canada in 1955 she continued her nursing career at Muskoka Sanatorium where she met her then patient, Chauncey and his four children. The two were later married in 1956 and added four more children to their family.
We wish to thank the caring staff at Douglas Crossing Retirement Community who so lovingly cared for ‘Nana’ and quickly became her second family, especially the staff on the second floor; and a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Dhar Doobay. Each caring individual contributed to the happiness of Iris’ extraordinary life.
In lieu of flowers a donation can be made in memory of Iris to Covenant House Toronto or a local charity close to your heart.
