  • Our condolences. I have many good memories of Irene (and Lorne), and in particular I will miss having sushi with Irene. God Bless. Jay & Andria - Posted by: Jay Ross (Cousin) on: Aug 15, 2020

  • I met Irene when she walked her dog Bailey. We became friends. My dogs name is Bailey also. When she had to put her Bailey down we would often stop by. She loved to get my Bailey going asking where his treats were. He knew exactly where she kept them. When we go by her house he wants to stop there, She was a very special friend. I think she still has treats for there. I would pick them up for her. We will miss her very much. Sorry for your loss. Take care. - Posted by: helena poschner (friend) on: Aug 09, 2020

I always enjoyed Our conversations With a laugh or two when she rode my bus back in the day, Mrs Mcghie would always scold me For not calling her by her first name Irene. in which I Would reply I wasn’t brought up that way We would laugh as she would tell me her story of her adventure on the 77 route to polo park Not knowing that it would take a day to get to polo park she didn’t know she had to pack a lunch and sleeping bag never to make that mistake again Mrs Mcghie will be dearly missed Rest In Peace gentle soul - Posted by: Bill Tretiak (Friend of sons ) on: Aug 08, 2020
