Irene was my Godmother and I have fond memories of her since I was a young boy. I believe I stayed with George and Irene for a few days when my Dad and Mom traveled somewhere. I came home with a couple nice cowboy shirts and got a new one for birthdays for a few years. Irene told me she did not have any little boy’s to sew for so I was a lucky young man.
Rest in peace Irene. Mike & Kathy
