Dear David, Julie, Patti & Mark
So sorry to hear your mom has passed away. I will always have such good memories of the days in Point Roberts and how caring she was with a wonderful loving way. Thinking of you all.

Irene was a truely lovely lady. She had a 'calm' about her with a down to earth twinkle in her eyes. I remember Irene walking slowly around Crystal Water Beach observing everything & everyone. Her smile was always a welcome opening for conversation.

Irene, has a special place in my heart, I baby sat for her and Ted over 50 years ago, when our family moved to North Vancouver and we became neighbors. The friendship continued on after I moved away and my family became neighbors of Irene at her summer cottage on Point Roberts, I enjoyed seeing Irene on my visits, those are pleasant memories. Irene was such a gracious, loving person and fun to be around, I am so glad I was able to be in her life and know her family.

My condolences. "Mrs Poskitt" as we kids referred to her, was a treasure to the community. I have nothing but fond memories of her and indeed the whole family, cats and dogs included! We were blessed to have such neighbours.

Irene has always been the gentlest, warmest and most supportive person throughout her life. By way of her artistic gifts she was able to share her love of life and people, for the greatest good of all. Irene and Ted opened their home to our family as new neighbours over 50 years ago and the friendship carried on ever since. We will miss her strong, positive attitude and wise words but it will remain for all of us to see them through her many deeds, friendships and gifts she shared during this lifetime.

My condolences to the Poskitt Family. The beautifully written words in the obituary encapsulate Irene ( and Teds) ability to inspire others with their insight, intelligence, and creativity. They had a profound and lasting influence on my life, and I believe I can speak for other members of my family here , as well..they live on in their children and grandchildren, to whom I send my heartfelt sympathy and love, on behalf of the Willoughby Family.

My mother, Doris Moody, often spoke fondly of Irene Poskitt. They were friends back in the '50s. It was long ago but I believe she may have run the kindergarten where my older brother, Glen went. They are both gone now but I remember my mother saying how much she liked and respected Irene. My condolences to you and your family.

We feel privileged to have know Irene for many years. She was always such a vibrant, warm and unique individual. She created such beautiful calligraphy, quilts and paintings - a very talented person. Wonderful that she had such a long, full life and passed over to the other side in a merciful way. Our deepest sympathy to all the family. We are sure that her spirit will live on in all those who loved her.

Irene was one of my first Calligraphy Instructors. She was inspiring in her devotion to teaching and to her life long love of art and calligraphy. She holds a special place in my heart. She will be missed by all at Yellow Point Lodge where she attended the annual calligraphic retreat over many years. Rest in peace, Irene.

I remember Irene's kindness and support when I had back surgery. I was bed-bound for two months.
She came to Lions Gate hospital and brought all the supplies for calligraphy. She then proceeded to teach me the basics while I lay on one side or the other.
She was loved...
