I will always remember those family trips to the beach and the lake. Playing in the ocean and taking boat rides. Irene had the biggest smile and the most loving heart. I will truly miss you “Ring-Ring”. You and Betty have always been the Christian role model that I aspired to be like. Enjoy your eternal life in heaven, you deserve it. I love you ❤️

To a very Beautiful and Loving and warm Lady inside and out. My Aunt Irene will never be truly forgotten. She did so much for everyone who knew her. She loved cooking a Omelette for little Daisy when she was babysitting for the fur baby. She was a one in a million type of person. She will leave behind such an amazing legacy but it will be impossible to replace her. She was a special woman who brought a light to this world; Irene and Betty her sister, who was inseparable. They are now in Heaven together. I know Betty was waiting for her with open arms when she enter in the pearly gates!
