Sending love and light to Bill and Irene’s family. I have fond memories of spending July 4th with her and Bill at my parents annual party. She had a great laugh. She will always be remembered.

Irene had three children, but she had many more who thought of her as "mom". She was caring to all. Love and condolences to her family, and all who loved her.
