Irene Viola Tuck

August 25, 1933 – December 29, 2013

With profound sadness the family of Irene Viola Tuck (nee Bolton) announces her passing in Comox, BC on December 29, 2013. Born in Neepawa, MB on August 25, 1933, age 80 years.

To Mom her family was everything and it was heart warming for her to have all her family near her during her last days.

Mom leaves Allan, her loving husband of 55 years, to carry the torch for her in minding the family.

She also leaves her devoted children; son, Bruce (Brenda Robinson) of Victoria, BC, her daughter Charlene Gray (Gord) of Comox, BC, and her son Barry (Rae) of Nanaimo, BC.

Mom’s joy were her grandchildren; Bryan Friis of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan (formerly Comox, BC), Lindsay Mallette (Stephane) of Courtenay, BC, Kevin Gray of Comox, BC, Scott Tuck (Alison) of Stonewall, MB, and Bradd Tuck (Carlea) of Victoria, BC. As well, Mom had two wonderful great grandchildren who loved “Gigi” and brought a sparkle to her eye; Aubree and Ronan Mallette.

Mom also leaves her sister Margaret Hayter of Stonewall, MB and brother, Don Bolton of Ontario. Mom was predeceased by her parents Mary and “Doc” Bolton; brothers and sisters in law, Cecil (Joan) Bolton and Len (Babe) Bolton all of Manitoba and Diane Bolton of Ontario.

Mom always enjoyed her friends from Victoria and Comox and along with many relatives, she will be missed by all.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 pm at the Westerly Best Western Hotel 1590 Cliffe Avenue Courtenay, BC on Wednesday January 8, 2014.

May the long time sun shine upon you,

All Love surround you,

And the pure light within you,

Guide your way home
