Irene was a lovely Christian lady, whose life was an example to others. She was a hard worker, and I remember her from the days she operated the Broadway Freezo. She had many loyal customers, who remember her for her good food and pleasant personality. She will be remembered fondly by the McCloud family of Dante.

Boyd, Linda and all the Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I met your mother at church a time or two when she came. She was a very pretty lady and you could tell that she had been like that all her life. Remember all the good times that you all had with her and cherish them. My love and prayers for you all at this difficult time.

❤️ Sandy
