Mom, Grandma, "Aunt Irene" was a hard-working, one-of-a-kind force in dark sunglasses. Her kitchen, much like her life, was filled with family, storytelling, and food made with love. She will be forever missed.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Wendy, so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. My sincere condolences to you and your family. Linda, you and I spent a lot of time supporting each other, talking and laughing (otherwise we would have been weeping) about our collective “old folks” . It is hard to lose your mother! Thinking of you. Take care. - Posted by: Ellen Smith (Friend and former colleague ) on: Jul 22, 2020
Dear Wendy, Terry and Abby, I am sorry to hear of your mom's passing. I have a few memories of your mom that always bring a smile to my face. She was a one-of-a-kind, and I'm sure she will be missed. Take care, Deb - Posted by: Deb Kropla (Friend) on: Jul 18, 2020
Auntie Irene was a force to be reckoned with. She was not only my aunt but also my godmother. Hanging out at her house was always a good time. Filled with love laughter and some pretty awesome food. She was an amazing lady and she will be missed. Rest in Peace Auntie Irene. - Posted by: Shari Beilman (Niece ) on: Jul 18, 2020
