With deep sadness, we announce the passing of our beloved mother and grandmother, Irene May Hull, of Saskatoon, SK., formerly of Radisson, Sk. on January 3, 2013 at the University Hospital. Irene was born in Edmonton, AB on September 22, 1915, the second child of John and Rose Lynem. As a young child, Irene moved with her family to North Battleford, where she completed her schooling. She married John Swain on November 1, 1937 in Turtleford, SK and in 1945, they moved to Livelong, SK to run a café and pool room. In 1952, they moved to Radisson, SK and together they operated Johnny's Inn, a café and service station, until John's untimely death in 1966. On November 15, 1969, Irene married William J. Hull. They resided in Radisson until Bill's death in 1990. Irene moved to Saskatoon and had been residing in Luther Towers until recently when her failing health required a move to Stensrud Lodge. Left to cherish her memory are her loving sons and their families – Carmen (Cheryl) Swain: Donna Dyck and Dustin; Darren Swain; Garry (Marlene) Swain: Craig (Tanya) Swain, Hanna and Calli; Kelli (Ted) Genereux; Michelle Swain, Kadin and Liv; Scott (Colleen) Swain, Maksim and Wyatt; Jeff Swain (Breanna Hoffart). She is also survived by her brother, Don (Mary) Lynem and many special nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her first husband, John Swain, her second husband, Bill Hull, her parents, John and Rose Lynem, her sister, Marie Summers and her brother and sister-in- law, Clarence and Dorothy Lynem. A graveside memorial service will be held at a later date, with interment at Radisson cemetery. The family wishes to thank the staff of Luther Towers for their wonderful care during Irene's last ten years, and also to the staff of Stensrud Lodge for helping to make her final days as comfortable as possible. For those so wishing, memorial donations can be made to The Radisson Cemetery Fund, Box 69, Radisson, Sk. S0K 3L0. Arrangements have been entrusted to Martens Warman Funeral Home.
"A Mother's Message to her Family"
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you.
And every time you think of me
I know you will miss me too.
So, when tomorrow starts without me, I'm never far away,
Because, every time you think of me, I am right there in your heart.
