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.
