To Irene's family
I was surprised and saddened to read Irene's notice. St Brendan's School was my first teaching job, John Spenrath was the principal and Irene was in my grade 5 class. I remember her as a little person with sparkling brown eyes and an impish grin. From the many entries I've read, it sounds like she was well- loved and will be missed greatly.
Please extend my sympathies to all the Spenrath clan. I had a number of them in my class and was fond of the whole family
Dear Ralph & Family

Dear Ashley and Family,
Time spent with Irene the years she was at St. James were always lots of fun. She was always so animated, strong, and skilled at whatever challenge came her way.
I am so grateful for the gift of time spent with her just recently, as it reminded me how much I had missed her....and because she was so full of life I am shocked at her sudden passing.
Memories of Irene will lift your spirits, but I know you will miss her presence every day.
With sincere sympathy,
Ralph,brandi,sara,ashley and families our deepest sympathies for your loss.anybody who new irene is a better person today, she will always be in our thoughts. michael,sean,brandon,dara caine

Dear Louise, Mrs. Spenrath and all of your families, I was so sad to learn of Irene's passing. I am so very sorry for your loss. I spent a few hours with Irene years ago, while volunteering at my kid's elementary school, I went to do some laminating at St James, and Irene was there to help me out. We had a few laughs. I always remember how much fun she was in high school, all those years ago. I hope your many fond memories will help you through this difficult time. With sincere and heartfelt condolences.
To Ralph, Brandi, Ashley, Sarah, your spouses and all your children,
My heart is full of sorrow and I am in disbelief. My deepest sympathies to all of you. When I think of Irene's life, I think it can be summed up by this: Irene worked hard, laughed hard, played hard and loved hard. She crammed everything she could have into her fifty-two years.
I will miss her so much.
We will miss you Irene.
