In Loving Memory ~
It is with heavy hearts that we announce and mourn the passing of our beloved mother, Irene, the matriarch of our family.
Irene lived a proudly independent lifestyle. She was well known for her quick wit and ready sense of humor. Along with her lifelong love of gardening, Irene had a passion for baking and enjoyed sharing her goodies with all who passed through her door.
Irene was predeceased by her husband Don in 2000 and her only son Larry (Sonny) in 1998.
She will be dearly missed by her 5 daughters, Gail Eliason, Donna (Garth) Eland, Deb (Mike) Hult, Patty (Ragland) Ross, Tracy (Rick) Rumsby, also her 7 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, 4 great-great grandchildren as well as many dear friends.
Rest in peace mom
You wiped away our childhood tears
And calmed away our adult fears
You gave us life then set us free
Having the lessons to go and be
All we are we owe to you
Thank you mom for being
