Irene Short

3 May, 192630 April, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Irene Short on April 30, 2021 at the age of 95 years. She was predeceased by her husband Charlie; parents Joseph and Minne; sister Beryl; and brothers Keith, Joe, Roy, Eric and Cyril (Syd). She is survived by her son Keith Short (Christine); daughter Denise Edwards (Gary); four grandchildren Lee, Daniel, Kendra and Brandi; and five great-grandchildren Sophia, Ireland, Jayia, Oliver, Chase, and Kai; as well as many nieces, nephews and cousins in England. Irene was born in Manchester, England on February 3, 1926 and relocated to Canada as a War Bride where she and her husband, Charlie, eventually settled in Stony Beach, Saskatchewan. Irene was happiest when surrounded by her family; always with food, laughter and music in the background. Irene didn’t wish to have a service, but the family ask that you remember the times you shared with her over the years. We send sincere gratitude to Parkside Extendicare in Regina for the wonderful care given to our mother over the years she resided there. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to give a donation to your local Royal Canadian Legion in Irene’s name.

Keith, Christine and family.
So sorry I hear of your mom's passing. Too many memories of growing up on the farm by Stony beach and going to the elevator with dad and seeing Charlie then on weekends we would stop for coffee at your mom and dad's house. What a great lady! Always will have fond memories of her and Charlie.

My sweet sweet Gran,

I’m sure going to miss you.

My favourite memory and one I get to relive every time I drive into Invermere is how, without fail, we would round the corner down the hill into town and you’d say in your most perfect English accent “ohhhhh look at the lovely water”. Kendra and I would giggle in the back seat and then repeatedly say throughout the day (and still) “ohhhh look at the lovely water”. I hope you see how crystal clear it is.

We love you, we miss you❤️
