Irene was a wonderful part of so many shared holidays and will be missed. She loved being with her family and their friends. We hope that memories of happy times together will provide comfort during this difficult time.

Irene and her husband Joseph were related to me through marriage to my first wife, Florence. They turned out to be our best friends. Our ages were similar as were the ages of our children. Over the years we spent many happy hours visiting each other. They introduced us to the exotic world of vacations by including us in a trip to Bermuda sponsored by Joseph's alumni of Canisius College. It turned out to be one of our greatest vacations!

Irene was the Godmother to our older son Rick.

We wish Irene peace.

My wife Bonnie-Elizabeth and I send our condolences to everyone.
