We will miss our friend Irene at cards . Irene always managed to put the fun in the games in her quiet way. Her sense of humour and easy acceptance of situations was her trademark. Sleep well Irene. Ron and Anthea McIntyre

Our deepest condolences to Irene’s family. We shared many laughs with Irene, playing euchre at the Coronation Centre and at mutual friends homes. She was quite astonished to find out that she shared the same surgery procedure as Phil, as I think she thought she was alone. That gave them a bond that no one else had. We are very saddened to know that Irene has passed but happy to know that she is now pain free and at peace.
Thinking of all of you,
Pat and Phil Tweedie

So sad to hear of your loss of your beautiful mother, my husband and myself met Irene a few years back on a cruise from Florida to NY. She was a lovely woman and we all got along so well as she was
traveling single, we hit it off right away as my roots are PEI and my husbands roots are NL. We were in touch after the cruise and thru social media and a couple of years back I got to see Irene again when I visited Niagara Falls. She was such a joyful woman and I know she will be missed by all. RIP Irene your friends the Murphys
from Boston.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I worked with Irene many years ago. She was a wonderfully person who treated everyone with compassion and respect. She had a wonderful smile and contagious laugh. She will be sadly missed by so many people.

May our Lord comfort you during this difficult time
