HILTON, Irene Anne
With sadness we announce the death of Irene Anne Hilton (Chenger), the matriarch of our family. She passed from this life the morning of December 28, 2012. Irene was tiny in stature but mighty in spirit, and was very much engaged in her family and her world. Born on November 8, 1922 in Lethbridge Alberta, Irene had recently celebrated her 90th birthday with a grand party. Irene was pre-deceased by her long-time and much beloved companion Bill Lewis in 2010. She missed his warm light-hearted presence very much. They are together again. Irene was immensely proud of her three fine sons, Bill (Carol), Steven, and Dan (Michele) with her former husband Wilfred. It is no small thing to lose a mother like Irene. She adored being a grandma to Ronal (Idelle), Megan, Simon, Andrea (Nick) and Lindsay; and was thrilled to be great-grandma to Adria, Kayla, and Chloe. Irene's Catholic faith sustained her. Her Funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph's 20676 Fraser Highway, Langley, BC, on Friday January 4th, 2013 at 10:30 a.m., followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, make a donation in Irene's memory to BC Heart & Stroke Foundation.
