February 4th 1961 - July 30th 2012 On July 30th 2012, after a long, brave battle with cancer, Irene Sevcik died peacefully in her home with her husband Petr, and her daughters Petra, Jana and Mika at her side. Left with our loving memories of Irene are her parents Charles and Rosemary Holman, her sisters Sandra and Joan, her brothers-in-law Michel and Leigh, her nieces and nephews; Sarah, David, Nicholas, Caitlin and Christopher and so many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, horses, dogs, and cats. We were blessed to have the support of family and friends, who have done so much to help. Her beautiful smile, loving heart, and effervescent spirit will be remembered always. We will miss her laughter, dancing, and warmth. Being with Irene made us all better people.
The Guest Book is expired.
Irene has now begun "Chapter One of the Great Story which no one on earth has read: which goes on forever: in which every chapter is better than the one before".
