She leaves her brother, John (Margaret) Hardy; her two daughters, Gianna (Raymond) Logan and Jennifer Campagnolo; her three granddaughters Kim, Kate, and Chloe; three great-grandchildren Logan, Carmen and Austin, as well as many nieces and nephews. Her family was her greatest love.

Iona was an extraordinary gardener, a great cook, and a lifelong active member of both her local community and the national political community. Iona loved the Courtenay-Comox Valley where she made her home for more than 20 years.
