Irene certainly did grow lovely growing old. We miss you but know that you are dancing with Joe.A celebration of Irene's life will be held Monday, January 22, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. at Charleswood United Church, 4820 Roblin Blvd at Dieppe Road, Winnipeg, MB.

  • To Irene's children, I am so sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. We so enjoyed living on Oakdale Drive and having the Baron girls as babysitters for our boys. We moved to a condo not far from where your Mom lived and John and I would meet up with her at Swindon Park occasionally. Please accept our condolences. Our thoughts are with you at this time.
