I just read of the passing of our beautiful and so precious Irene. My heart is saddened, but joyful at the same time as I think of the wonderful memories of such a dear woman. She was the epitome of an Elon alumna to me! Heaven certainly has gained a jewel! May God's peace be with you, her wonderful family and please know that you are in my prayers.
