I can’t begin to tell you how sorry we are. It is with a very heavy heart that I send this condolence. When we talked about Irene yesterday we found ourselves smiling through our tears. and that lifted us. We loved Irene. Everyone young and old loved Irene and it wasn’t just because of her popsicles and tarts.
She was a special person who touched many people with her positive outlook and ever present smile. She always laughed and we will always be remember her for that. I will miss her hugs and so will Darryl, Matthew Brandon and Victoria

Very sorry to hear of your precious loss. She was always fun of smiles and energy.

I remeber the days when younger visiting and seeing her bake or washing cloths. She was non stop. I also remember the invites to go blueberry picking and or Bingo. Always lucky there.
