There she made many friends with fellow employees and customers. She was told she had a very giving heart.

She was a state Fair multi blue-ribbon winner for her knitting. Anyone who received one of her knitted pieces felt blessed. Doing jigsaw puzzles was a favorite hobby while watching TV. Irene also loved doing activities at the Roseville Senior Center and taking bus trips with them. She did Wii Bowling at the center and was always an excellent bowler with many 200 games. In league play she even bowled a 299 game, one pin away from a perfect game. She loved children, collected dolls, and anything cat related. She was the "mom" to multiple cats.

Her Final resting place will be next to her parents at White Chapel Memorial Cemetery. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends alike.

So sorry to hear of Irene’s death. She is resting in peace. Irene was a strong lady, who met many health challenges through the years.
Irene was my student at Roseville High. We always kept in contact and enjoyed many lunches. She was a faithful member of Erin Presbyterian.
Our sympathy to her family.
