Peacefully with her family by her side at Emmanuel House on Wednesday November 1st, 2017 at the age of 77. Beloved wife of the late Gilles Gaston for 45 years. A loving and devoted mother in all ways. Mom to Philip(Suzanne), Michael (Karen) and Gilles (Charmaine). A proud and loving Gramma to Joseph, Kathleen, Taylor, Benjamin, Lise, Jean Luc, Lauren, Marc and Gabriel. Dear sister of the late George Menu. Iris was a devoted nurse of the old school. She worked in a variety of disciplines for close to 40 years in Smooth Rock Falls and Penetanguishene Ontario. Always interested in further development and never backing down from a challenge she held a seat on council in Penetanguishene for several years. Iris was an avid bridge player and loved to knit, play golf, and pursued a life long love of painting on canvas. She made the best pies and her canned peaches and jams will be sorely missed. A special thank you to Emmanuel House and Ward C 3 at the Juravinski Cancer Center.
