I regret to advise that Irene Poole (partner of Denis Tucker - our odyssey entertainer for many many years) passed away late last week.
The funeral will be at Mansfield Anglican Church on Monday 12 August.
Here is the latest information I received this morning via Greg Gleason;
"Irene was in Wangaratta Base Hospital ICU for about 2 weeks before she died battling double pneumonia that followed the influenza.
Denis rang just to make sure we knew about Irene, and to let us know that her funeral is next Monday, 12th August at 11 am in the Mansfield Anglican Church with a wake to follow at the football club.
He asked if I could let everyone know so anyone who wanted to attend knew the arrangements.
Denis said it would be a sad reunion in October, but that we should make sure we all have a “bloody good night in her memory”!!
I expressed our condolences on behalf of all the Ulysses members that knew her and Denis." - Greg Gleason
I can only repeat those condolences and say "Denis - our thoughts are with you at this difficult and sad time."
- I will be attending the funeral and intend to drive up by car leaving Montrose at 0820 next Monday morning. If you'd like to come along please contact me in advance.
- I will provide updates as information arrives
