I'm saddened to hear of your loss. For me, Irene was always someone I could count on to say hi to me. She was always a good neighbor too. May our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.

Our deepest sympathy to all of the family. You have lost a very special lady who also meant a great deal to many others. She will be remembered many times for her special warmth, caring & the love that she gave to everyone who knew her. I have so many wonderful memories of times spent with her either vistiing or trading recipes. It was a joy to be her cleaning lady, as I could bring my son Russ with me to play with Monty while I cleaned the house & helped Irene care for Henry (when that time came). Sometimes we would make a pinic out of the rest of the day---or get a card game going. In later years I remember my son coming home after a night of card playing at the Legion in Morristown & he'd say "I can't believe it Irene & Henry taught Monty & me how to play cards good---but she can still beat the pants off us every single time". God has called another "Angel" home now...so once again the stars in the sky will be twice as bright at night.
