Irene was a special lady.  We had so much fun as little kids playing when our families got together at summer picnics.  Those times will always be special memories for me.  R.I.P Sweetie.

We are so sorry to hear of Aunt Irene’s passing. We always enjoyed talking with her at family gatherings. She was always such a friendly, cheerful and gracious lady. When we were younger, she and my Sister Carole always had a special cousin-friendship. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends

Your momma always had such a bright smile and
provided all of us such sweet talk everyday we would see her in the lunch room. She was the best and all your love for her was amazing. ♥️
