We always enjoyed talking to Irene at VFW events and later visiting them at Good Samaritan. She was a great source of interesting information. We will miss her a lot. We send our condolences to Richard and other family members and offer our prayers.

I remember Irene as a quilter at St. Mary's when I worked there. She was such a kind, gentle lady and I'll always remember her quiet smile. My deepest condolences to her family. Janice Friedel
