Iris Neilson Cook

September 12, 1954 — January 8, 2024

Garden City

Iris Jane Cook, 69, died Monday, January 8, 2024 in Yuma Arizona. She was born on September 12, 1954, the daughter of C. Verneil Neilson and Zelpha Bennett Neilson. She married Eugene Cook on November 11, 1978 in Logan, Utah. 

Iris was raised and educated in Tremonton, Utah before moving to Logan. She worked as a master barber in Logan, working for several years at the USU Barbershop before moving to Garden City, Utah to set-up and operate Hometown Drive-In with her husband Gene. She was devoted and had unconditional love for her husband, three boys, their families and her pets. 

She enjoyed spending time with her family, friends and pets. She was a dare devil and willing to experience life with fast cars, skydiving, scuba diving, and while enjoying life she was quick to make friends wherever she was and would give them the shirt off her back, she loved cooking for family and friends, entertaining her neighbors and spoiling her pets. 

She is survived by her husband, Gene; three sons, Ryan (Tracy), Justin (April) and Brandon Cook, twelve grandchildren and three great-grandchildren with one more arriving soon. She was preceded in death by her parents.
