She was a member of the U.C.W., the Legion Auxiliary, Hobby Club and the Willow Bunch Church Board – to mention just a few. Irene loved to curl and square dance in the winter months. She also enjoyed hosting many social gatherings in her home where you would be graced with a wonderful meal and even better visit. She loved to be surrounded by family and friends. If not attending one of the many clubs she belonged to, you would find Irene volunteering within the community.
