Historical artist Irma Coucill 1918-2015 RIP

A very brief obit notes the recent death of portrait artist Irma Coucill recently.

Coucill's images of fathers of confederation, governors-general, and prime ministers were once widely printed, particularly around the centennial year almost fifty years ago.

She was also the artist of inductee portraits for the Hockey Hall of Fame, the Canadian Medical Hall of Fame, and other institutions.  She died at 97.
