NOWELL, Iris Winnifred
On May 31, 2018, with family by her side, Iris Nowell passed away peacefully at Reachview Village in Uxbridge, ON, at age 84. Formerly of Toronto, she was predeceased by her parents, Josephine and Wilfred, brother Brian (Mavis) and sister Joan (Bud Mathes). She is survived by sister Dell (Donald Collins), brother Blayne (Elaine) and many adored nieces and nephews.
Iris was the author of seven books. Her passion and knowledge of art led her to write both Painters Eleven: The Wild Ones of Art and Harold Town. Iris was an active member of Amnesty International for many years and was a patron of the arts in the Toronto area. Everything Iris did was done with enthusiasm and pride, and her love of life was evident in all she accomplished.
