Obituary for Irene Cook

Irene Cook
Irene Dorothy Cook
92, of Seabright passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 in Parkstone Enhanced Care Facility, Halifax. She was born in Seabright at the former Dundella Hotel, and was the only child of the late Clyde O. and Harriet A. (Hubley) Boutilier of Seabright.

Irene grew up in Seabright and when her school years were complete she went to Halifax and worked for Simpsons Department Store during WWII. After the war Irene married Gordon Cook and became a full-time wife, homemaker and mother to Wayne and Richard. When Gordon re-enlisted in the Canadian Army, the family enjoyed many postings across Canada from Halifax, Debert, Montreal, Wainwright, Mississauga and Oakville. Upon Gordon’s retirement from the army, he and Irene returned to Seabright so that she could care for her aging parents. After Dad died Mum maintained her home with the help of her son and Community Home Care until she moved into Parkstone in October, 2016. Irene was a member of the Seabright United Baptist Church until its closing. Mum was a generous and caring person and had a wonderful sense of humor. She had a great laugh and enjoyed the hearing and telling of little jokes. She had many stories of her experiences of living in Halifax during the war years. Mum loved animals and had many dogs and cats as family pets. One of her favorite activities was doing the puzzles in the daily paper with her morning tea. She was proud of her grandchildren and their accomplishments and particularly enjoyed seeing her great granddaughter Evelyn Jean in January.

Irene is survived by her son Richard (Nancy) Cook; granddaughter, Katherine (Roy) Snook; grandson, Peter (Emily) Cook and great granddaughter, Evelyn Jean Cook. She is also survived by many cousins. Irene was predeceased by her husband Gordon Cook and son Gordon Wayne. Cremation has taken place under the direction of Ronald A. Walker Funeral Homes, Upper Tantallon. At Irene’s request, there will be no visitation. Internment at a later date in Brookside Cemetery, Seabright. Donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
