Irene worked in retail sales, but for majority of her life was a housewife raising 4 children.  Irene kept an immaculate home where it was often noted that you could eat straight off the floors, they were so clean.  Hobbies….that women loved to shop!  She loved all different textiles and decorating her home, for which she had the eye to decorate – keeping up with the classic and current trends.    She loved music, playing cards and enjoyed spending time with her family.

Irene is preceded in death by the love of her life for 62 years Glen, daughter Diana, sons Darrell and Michael, grandson Dylan Young, son-in-law Robert Wooley, her parents and two sisters.
