I have known Irene since we were both young girls. I attended many birthday parties with Irene and Dorothy Jean. We three took piano lessons at the same time. Her parents were good friends of my parents. I always looked forward to seeing her when we had the Camden Point School Reunion. She was a lovely lady! May she Rest in Peace!

I worked with Irene for several years at DFS. Although we were in different areas, Irene was a friend to all and a great resource. She gave of herself tirelessly. She will be missed.

Irene was one of my P.E.O. Sisters and one of my favorites over the years. I saw her for many times entering the Community Center for her class or game day and thought , this woman knows how to keep going with a great attitude. Always loved our talks and know you will miss her presence. She was special and I know raised her children in her likeness. Rejoice in her life as you were given a "special" gift!!

Dear Joyce, I was a neighbor of Irene for many years. She was such a lovely lady and always enjoyed sitting for a chat. Irene was a member of our PEO chapter and served in many capacities, always with a smile and willing hand to help others. I know you have many warm memories that will aways warm your heart.
