I have so many memories with great gram, but one that I’ll keep close is say goodbye. Every time we had to go home (no matter the weather) she would follow us out to her front porch and wave us off until we could no longer see her. This included blowing kisses. I love you great gramma V. “We’ll catch ya later!”

Aunt Irene was one of a kind! There are so many memories of our youth with Diane, Roger, "Sissy" and Doreen, I barely know where to start. Growing up our families were our first friends. We saw one another every day and Uncle Bucky and Aunt Irene were always just up the road, along with all of their children! The woods, the rivers, and the "dump" were our playground and I shall smile, always, at the fun we had. Irene loved each and every one of her children and her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. There was never any doubt about that. Mom (Dottie Miner) and Irene had many adventures together. And, somehow, all we cousins filed into our VW bug and found yet more adventures at the pond and wherever else we ended up for the day. What fine, wonderful memories. Irene is with Bucky now, and I know she is happy. A life well lived and her family always came first. Love and sympathy to you all. Deb (Miner) and John Zilske

I remember being pregnant with Saphire and Grammy telling me that if I keep eating watermelon that I was going to have a child that was a watermelon baby. She always made you laugh no matter what was going on or how you felt. We will all miss you Grammy

We lived many years with my grandparents and shared so many loving memories. I will never forget the endless card games, popcorn and game shows and camping trips. My favorite thing was laying down with her at night or for naps where she would draw pictures with her finger on my back or face to help me fall asleep. She had a heart of gold and will be forever missed.

I have many wonderful memories of grammy, but if I had to pick just one it would be sleeping over and waking up to a yummy breakfast that she would be cooking at the stove(not before sending us to wash our face and hands).Grammy was a beautiful soul that will be missed everyday.Love you Gram💜

I was so happy to be part of the birthday/graduation parties and have Irene there. I felt at "home" with her and couldn't help but love her. She was a very caring person and I will miss her. She was family! I know she's in a better place! Love to my family, my thoughts are with you all.
