She was Mom, the best mother I could have possibly ever had. So loving and supportive, not just of me but to everyone around her. I lost my Dad, her then husband Paul Clark, when I was almost ten, so she had to work to support us and raise me on her own until she married Bill Mumford. She loved her family and stepfamily members and tried to stay in contact with them over the years. Mom was one of those people who cared about the needs and wishes of others more than her own. There will be a big void in my life (and in the lives of many others) without having her still here to laugh and talk with (and Mom did like to talk).
Love you forever, Mom........."Night night"...

I will miss her calls to me when she needed something done around the house. she was a great mother to me for almost 50 years. I love her and she will be greatly missed. She was mom-mom to my kids, and miss Irene to me we all miss her dearly. The great-grandchildren will miss visiting and getting to have candy from the dish, as it was always full. rest in peace.
