Irene, a precious lady, who demonstrated her faith in numerous ways. I enjoyed working with her in church, as well as, spending time in her home. The baskets she made me will always be treasured. Love this special Lady 💞.

Aunt Irene was a beautiful loving lady. You taught me a lot about loving my family and our Lord. She taught about having faith even when prayers aren\'t answered the way you want the. To be. She will be so missed!
