Our most sincere condolences to your family. I knew Irene for many years always getting together for picnics at her dear friend Luann's. Irene was so caring and she showed how much when helping me take care of one of my dear friends. I will cherish the time I got to share with her sitting on my friends deck just talking. There wasn't a day she didn't have some great stories about the good old days or what her grandkids were up to. She was so proud of them.We will miss her, may she rest in peace.
