Irene was a life long hockey fan, and her favorite hockey player was Gordie Howe. She enjoyed walks in the countryside and river valley sharing her love of nature with her grandchildren. She loved gardening and her flowers were always amazing! She was a talented acrylic artist and enjoyed painting landscapes.

She was a compassionate, hard-working mother who loved her family dearly and will be forever missed.
