Not sure what to say?

Let me say a very special thank you to everyone for your sweet, precious words and for sharing your many memories of Mom. She is going to be dearly missed. There is such comfort in knowing where she now is and with whom. Makes us all a little homesick, no doubt. Her light will shine in our hearts & minds every day. Blessings!

Aunt Irene was the best!! I will always remember her soft spoken ways. Such a lady!
I love you Aunt Irene.

Charlotte, what fond memories I have of Irene: all during our high school years when she'd drive us to Garinger each day; she always dressed beautifully, had a lovely smile, a great sense of humor, and was always there to give us teenage girls some good life advice. I will treasure those times with you & Donna, and your mom forever. Irene the Bean. Much love to you and all Irene's family, Pam (Canipe) Austin

Charlotte and Family, You All are in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time. Your precious mother was so beautiful and elegant!

Love you,

Rest in peace beautiful woman I'll see you real soon!

Aunt Irene's passing is truly sad to our family. She was special in our lives, always so loving, kind, and caring. She was very interested in how we were all doing in our daily walks of life. We loved her and will miss her so much. She and some of her family graced many of our family gatherings through the years, and we always looked forward to them being with us.
