Irene was a delightful addition to the Heffernan family. We always enjoyed her visits to Texas and know she loved our sister, Jean, like a true daughter. Irene will be missed by all for she was an inspiration since she continued to live life to its fullest no matter what life had in store for her. Thank you Brent and the rest of the Boller family, for sharing your mother with us!

Dear Irene's family,
I will always have fond memories of Irene. Her smile and humor have a special place in my heart. I enjoyed teaching first grade with her. We also had some nice lunches after retirement. God Bless Irene. I will miss my friend.
