Obituary for Ireen Vivian Buck

October 28, 1926 - November 4, 2017
San Antonio, Texas | Age 91


Beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend, Ireen Vivian Buck, age 91, passed away November 4, 2017. Mrs. Buck was preceded in death by her loving husband of 55 years, Colonel Wesley J. Buck. After several overseas assignments, the Bucks were transferred in 1969 to San Antonio. Upon Colonel Buck's military retirement, they chose to remain in San Antonio, at which time Mrs. Buck worked at Clark High School in the Attendance Office for ten years.

As a devoted military wife and mother, she was most proud of her ability to organize an impromptu party for multiple people showcasing her extraordinary culinary skills. Mrs. Buck was also an accomplished seamstress and sang soprano in multiple church choirs.

She is survived by two children, Tina Sprague and John Buck of San Antonio; four grandchildren, Daniel Christy; Weston Christy; Brandon Christy and Nicholas Christy; and 13 great-grandchildren.

Many thanks to the Alamo Hospice group for their help and support during this difficult time, and Carol Hall, her devoted caregiver of twelve years

Sam Houston National Cemetery on Thursday, November 16th at 10:00 A.M, and a memorial service will be held at Concordia Lutheran Church at 11:30 A.M. with reception to follow.
