KING, Iris Eleanor   -  Peacefully, on Friday, October 21, 2022, at the Extendicare in Oshawa, at age 78.

Iris (nee Holmes), beloved wife of the late Frederick King of Blackstock.

Survived by her siblings Martin Holmes, Paul Holmes, Rita Priestly and Nicholas Holmes.

Dear aunt to Robert, Paul, James, Magda, Emma, Michelle and Jeffery. Iris will be missed by her extended family and many friends.  Iris was born on December 3, 1943 to Victor and Nora Holmes in Birmingham, England.

She enjoyed childhood in the beautiful British countryside in the village of Bidwell. Around the age of 12 her parents decided the family would immigrate to Canada and settled in Scarborough.

This is where Iris was able to explore her true love of all animals, especially horses.

Later the family moved to Pickering then lastly Blackstock.

This is the farm where Iris really started her Welsh Pony breeding program and bred many ponies that went on to be champions in many disciplines. Iris’ love for her family, friends and animals, contributed to a fulfilled life.  

Private arrangements.

If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.
