My aunt and Godmother Irene will always be a true inspiration to me. She had a passion for the blessings of life and a deep appreciation for friends and family. Her kind words of support through thick and thin will forever be etched in my mind. Thank you Auntie for always being there and helping me to remember,.....
Much love,... your Godson Bob.

Irene was a strong, determined woman who with the help of caring family was able to live her life as she wanted. She certainly will be missed at all of our get- togethers. She was always positive and happy. Our thoughts and prayers are with both Irene and her family at this difficult time.

Irene was one of the loveliest women I have known. Always smiling, up beat only positive words and wishes. I envied her garden and she was always kind enough to share some of her wonderful tomatoes. I will miss her friendly smile and wave as she walked on Capeview St. Rest in peace Irene.
