Irene was such a sweet person and such a lady always dressed in dresses and heels We had some nice times going to the beach and going shopping when she came to visit it was like having a second mom and a sister all at once. It’s amazing that she lived to be 100 I think of all the history that she has seen and cultural change the wars she has endorsed and witnessed Change in technology And through her life she was always 1 foot in front of the other Go, Go, she was very spirited and had amazing energy To me she is a strong proud women, and she brought up two amazing men that carry her resilience and kindness like her You will be missed sweet Irene I am proud to be your daughter-in-law

My husband and I had the great pleasure of meeting Irene and family and were so impressed with her elegant style and sweet personality. What a true lady in every sense. To live to be 100 is an incredible feat in this day and age . We are so sorry for your loss and she will truly be missed.
