Ken, Gary, Lynette and families: I am so sorry for your loss. As you know, I knew Irene longer than my whole life! As Bob and my dad were friends from grade school, and the couples remained close friends their whole lives, I saw them frequently. They vacationed together, played cards together, went to dances, socials, parties, picnics together... What fun. Bob and Ike ("Ike Spike M'Dike" to my dad sometimes) always seemed to be to be the perfect couple. I know you will all sorely miss her.

To the family of Irene I send my condolences to you.
I worked with Irene at the General Telephone switchboard from 1956 until they switched to dial. also, was in Extension Club with her for a while. Saw her on the few occasions I went to the Senior Citizen dinners.
I remember she always had a ready smile.
She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Sincerely, Margaret Travis Williamston

Ken, Gary, Lynette and Families! I am sorry to see Ike leaving this world. She was a very principled and strong woman, always demanding respect and love. She was my only sister-in-law left, and she never failed to remind me of this. Now I am the only one left. We had many good times visiting, sharing a couple of cruises, but also much pain with the illnesses and deaths of Bob and other family members. She always rose to the occasion and was able to live a good and long life. "I love you, Ike, and will miss you." God bless you all, Jo.

If there was a matriarch at Williamston Middle School, I am sure it was Irene. We as a retiree group have stayed close and continue to support each other. Irene always wanted to be involved. We will all miss her...you had a very special mother and grand mother..

Truly sorry for your loss Ken, Gary and Lynette and kids. She was a great person that many people loved. I'll always have so many good memories of spending time with Bob and Irene at wrestling meets and out at the house. Sincere thoughts and prayers from the Fishers on this sad occasion.
