Oct. 20, 1913 – July 27, 2006
It is with deep sorrow we announce the passing of Iris. She passed quietly in her 93rd year at Maplewood House, Abbotsford, after a short illness.
Born Iris Seager in Faversham, England and came to Manitoba in her early teens and later moved to BC. She trained as a hairdresser and had her own shop, Beauty Nook, in Mission for ten years before moving to the family farm in Mt. Lehman where they looked over the farm. My dad was born and raised on that farm. In 2004 Iris published the family history which she had worked on for over 15 years, “The Coghlans of Mt. Lehman”.
Iris leaves behind daughter Wendy; two sisters-in-law Nellie and Beatrice and other cousins, nieces and nephews. Her husband Frank passed in May, 2005.
