Irene was such a special person who showed so much strength, humor and love. It’s no wonder why our brother-in-law, Kirk, had such a special relationship with her. She was the rock of her family. We loved spending time with her at family celebrations and she will be deeply missed by all of us. May her soul Rest In Peace.

I am glad to have gotten to know Irene, mostly through dear friends her son, Kirk & daughter-n-law Jennifer. There is no doubt she was a very loving person. Recently, we all played a game through the phone with her & although you could tell she was tired, interacting with all of us boosted her spirits. She had a good sense of humor to get us all laughing. Sending you all my deepest sympathy. May God bless her & all her loved ones!

We have many good memories of Irene, from shared Christmas celebrations with the Jones family and the Williams family,at her son, Kirk’s, and our daughter, Jennifer’s, home.We thoroughly enjoyed her sausage and other holiday dishes, and especially her presence at these celebrations. She found such joy in her family, and in the holiday season. We shall truly miss Irene.
