Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
I did her hair about 20 years we talked about family hers and mine and some many other things. I will miss her so much she was much. She was more than just a client she was friend and someone I could talk to about something. Sending my deepest condolences to the family - Posted by: Teri (Hairdresser and friend ) on: Sep 18, 2022
Aunt Irene was one of the most kind and loving people I know, a true “treasure”. I am grateful for all the great times we shared together. She will be sadly missed. - Posted by: Kirk Ulrich (Nephew ) on: Aug 11, 2022
Irene was a lady who made you feel like a friend after just meeting her. She was one of the sweetest people I’ve had the pleasure of knowing and I always looked forward to seeing her. I am so sorry to hear about her passing, the world needs more people like her. I wish all the best for her family and friends. - Posted by: Emma (Neighbour) on: Aug 10, 2022
Since Irene had no children of her own, she became an extra special aunt, who treated all of her nieces and nephews with great love and affection. Even though I lived far away from her for most of my life, I always felt loved by her. And I loved her back. Irene loved to laugh, and never was this more evident than during a visit to our family by her, Grandma Louise, and my mom, her sister, Helen in Delaware. My husband and kids put on a "Squidget the Midget" show in the dining room. I thought Irene was going to pass out, she laughed so hard! Irene was always very interested in the goings-on of my life and my children's lives, and when she was favorably impressed, she would always utter (in Canadian), "Ever nice, eh?" It became a clear identifier for Irene amongst me and my kids. She always sent birthday and Christmas cards and would visit when she could. She was a faithful aunt. I admired her for her commitment to fitness, preferring to walk, rather than drive, most everywhere. She also swam on many a Sunday for years. And when her right hand was crippled by arthritis, she never complained (to me at least), but simply trained her left hand to take over with writing and doing other tasks. She was a trooper. The type of love that Irene showered on her extended family is rare. How extremely lucky were I and my family to have been in Irene's orbit of relatives. I will miss her. - Posted by: Christine Anne Kramer (Niece ) on: Aug 09, 2022
I worked with Irene when I first started working at the City of Winnipeg. She was a lovely lady. - Posted by: Mona Anderson (former co-workers) on: Aug 09, 2022
