Fuchs-Cole, Irene

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Irene Fuchs-Cole on Wednesday, June 23, 2021, at the of age 55. Irene was a strong, independent, outgoing, and loving person who spread so much joy to the people around her. She had this zest for life and drive to experience everything life had to offer. She took joy in travelling the world. Never missing a moment and always participating in community events. She loved hosting holiday dinners, planning trips, and organizing family game nights from baseball tournaments to real life Fear Factor. Irene was devoted to bringing her family together and wanted to create many memories for us all to cherish. Her creativity and thoughtfulness when planning celebrations was unmatched and will never be forgotten. Irene made everyone feel welcome and special. Halloween was her trademark holiday as it showcased her imagination. She always made games, costumes, decorations, and food to spice up the night. Her creativity was also portrayed in her sense of fashion from her hair styles to jewelry. Some of our fondest memories were around a campfire enjoying a cup of coffee or a glass of wine. Her laugh was contagious and always lit up the room. Irene was a loving wife to Brian Cole. A loving mother to Casandra Cole (Nicholas Cote). Predeceased by her sister Dorothy Nadalin and her parents Janina and John (Jan) Fuchs. She will be missed greatly by her best friend Angela Burton and her god child Natasha Burton (Corey Mathew) as well as her lifelong friend Rosanna Menard. Remembered by her stepson Danny Cole (Marie-Josée Daigle) and Adam Cole (Shawna Cole) (Ty & Avery). Irene will also be missed by her beloved animals Mishu and Hannah. Our family would like to thank Dr. Pitre and the entire Cancer Centre for everything they have done for Irene over the years. Words can not explain how grateful we are to have had you all care for her. Our family would also like to say thank you to her home care nurses (Jenna). Donations made directly to the Northeast Cancer Centre in Irene’s name would be greatly appreciated.


4 Condolences

  1. Our deepest condolences brother Brian and CC. Irene will be deeply missed she was a strong women and always on top of things you couldn’t put anything past her. She always made you feel welcome in her home and was a good host and party planner /cook and she made sure everyone enjoyed themselves. She always made time to come watch my kids play hockey when they played in Sudbury and cheered them on. One of my fondest memories was her impersonation of madonna at my wedding which she did to a “t”. That was the highlight of the night. Her energy livened up any room, we will miss her smile and laughter.

  3. My heart is saddened to have lost such a beautiful lifelong friend. I am grateful for having had you in my life and will cherish our fond memories. Memories of all the good times we had when we were little. How our parents use to laugh and joke about your dad changing my diapers. How we use to play in your back yard with your rabbits and play in the tent. I remember we had so much fun riding the horse swing in your basement. We would ride that swing forever and swing so high that we came close to smacking our heads on the ceiling. I remember the fun times we had at the sand pit and that time when the horse fly chased us all the way home. I remember the Christmas Suppers we had together, like the time your mom made me try borscht for the very first time and loving it. I remember signing on stage, in Polish, and, how you sounded so much better than me. We continued to make memories together as we got “older” at Sudbury’s best hangout spots like the Northbury, Peter Piper and City Light’s! And the dancing, oh yes, the dancing!! You loved to dance and had quite the groove. We danced the nights away to your favourite Madonna tunes and walked like Egyptians all the way to Gloria’s for our ritual after hours “coffee”. I remember when you first introduced me to Brian, seeing how special he was for you and you knew right away that you were going to marry him. I remember going to your baby shower and how excited you were to become a mom. Now Cassandra is a beautiful young lady and you always told us how proud you are to have her as your daughter. Throughout my life, you have always been there for me; you even stood beside me as my Maid of Honour. You have always been such a loving and caring friend and I will cherish the moments and the events you organised for our families to come together, especially game nights, we all had so much fun!! Pass the thingy Irene. I hope we can continue this tradition that you started, and, I know… it’s my turn to make supper. You were always thoughtful, passionate and caring and lived life to its fullest! I will think fondly of our memories, and I will miss you deeply my friend, always!

    My deepest and most sincere condolences to Brian, Cassandra, the Fuchs-Cole families.

  4. Thank you for the laughs, everything was funny and creative when all got going. We met in GFSS Marketing class and rolled out official projects and unofficial product lines that we made up for fun. No one would get the humour or buy our products and that’s ok. You brought rock music into my life and I thought it was cool you were DJ at weddings, very progressive for the 80’s. The Northbury dances included our Meat Loaf, love by the dashboard light skit, I can see you hitting the home run across the dance floor. Silliness is a good quality in a world too serious for its own good and we will miss this the most.
    Condolences and Sympathy to Brian who has been your rock from so long ago, Cassandra your beautiful daughter, who is exactly who you hoped she would be and Danny who we’ve known a short while but obviously exemplifies kindnesses .
