Even though family left Los Alamos to move out of state in 1986, over 33 years ago, I will always treasure my many memories of Irene. I came to know her well and love her dearly as a fellow member of White Rock Presbyterian Church from 1972 through 1986, especially as a member of the WRPC choir during my first two years there. Irene was beautiful, inside and out, talented and so intelligent. She was always, always patient and gracious, no matter how challenging a circumstance might be. For example, one Sunday morning, when an inner ear infection left our then pastor Rich Dennis unable to lead worship, she took over for him, leading the service flawlessly, complete with totally extempororaneous remarks that were very inspiring. I can still recall the sound of her beautiful singing voice, especially when each Christmas, she would sing "Silent Night" in German. (My husband and I met in a third-semester German class at college, so we especially appreciated that and I might add, her English, unlike our German, was flawless.) Also, if I remember correctly, often after those rare times she expressed mild frustration, Irene would smile and sigh and remark, "Well, I'll tell you." While I never had the opportunity to see your mom in the classroom at Chamisa, I know for sure, she must have been a marvelous teacher! Also I remember her terrible allergy to cats and I sorely regretted that we could never entertain her in our home because we had a cat (and have had two cats since!) I also remember your dad well in the years before your parents' divorce. I am glad Irene found happiness in a second marriage and hope your dad found happiness again, as well. Like my husband's parents, your dear mother was blessed with a long life, but like everyone who knew her, I will miss her very much. I know you are missing her infinitely more, and that you have many wonderful, happy memories to comfort you. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

We knew Irene in Los Alamos - she was the most delightful and fun friend anyone could have. Julie was in our wedding and we worked together and shared this wonderful Mother of hers - Irene absolutely made Christmas Eve when she would sing "Stille Nacht" in German at the Christmas Eve service. We shared so many things, so many times - much laughter, some tears, and she was a most wonderful friend to us. The last time we spoke on the phone her strength was not 100% but her essence and humor were spot on - it was so good to hear her voice! Wonderful Irene you will be missed - thank you for sharing your heart, your love and your music with this world - we all needed you.

Irene made me who I am today. I always struggled with interacting with people. Irene knew this and she pushed herself into my life. As a kid I never appreciated how hard she tried to help me. As the years went on though I went from her student to a dear friend. I grew to appreciate the difference she made in my life. I graduated with my 4 year degree the very same month she passed away. I regret that I wasn't able to tell hershe made such a huge difference in my lifeif it wasn't for her I don't think I would have graduated at all. If it wasn't for Irene I wouldn't be working in the mental health field, I wouldn't be striving to help people today. Irene inspired me to be a better person, she gave me the tools I needed to thrive and was the kindest person I ever knew. I'm grateful to her for being a part of my life and for all the years I spent with her. You'll always be in my heart Irene, thank you for everything!

I knew Irene (Mrs. Davis, of course to me) as a teenage best-friend of her son John. She was kind, caring and loving and I always felt welcome in her home. She was truly a very special human being! It's sad that we move on to other eras in our life and leave behind individuals who were so special to us.
