I was privileged to be part of Irene’s pickleball gang. She was always glad to see you on the court and a joy to play with. I will miss her energy and enthusiasm. Rest in peace.

Moira, so sorry to hear about Irene. We worked together at Long's and after. I thought she was a very nice, considerate friend. I also knew your dad and went to him for some skin stuff. Both very nice people.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Irene and Ray were our wonderful neighbors in New Waterford and were very kind to us growing up. Irene and my mother remained friends after they moved to Reminton and we visited this great part of the world when we could. Irene shared her Florida condo with us and I remember driving non-stop to Siesta Key. Irene always had to drive the car so we had long chats on the way there. She loved her family and friends is what I remember. We wish our deepest condolences to Steve, Moira and the family...The Angot Family next door.

Dear Moira and Steven & Family; I’m so sorry for your loss. Irene will be truly missed, but she will always be in our hearts. There are so many great memories, and nothing will ever replace Irene’s famous goulash that wasn’t ready to be eaten until after 11:00 pm!!! Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, Love leaves a memory no one can steal.

What started as meeting a sweet person who offered to keep and love our cat, Lily, while we traveled, developed into a cherished friendship. We thank God Irene’s presence in our lives over the past years. Her grin, her positive attitude, her genuine love of life are but a few treasures we will miss. Steve, Mo, Owen and Elly know she loved you so much. Our deepest and heartfelt sympathy to you and to all who knew her.

I celebrate her life & our friendship!! One of the most favorite things I can share is the late night phone calls. If I couldn’t sleep, I knew she was awake. I would text her & ask if she would like to talk. Her answer was “Yes, do you have a glass of wine? Of course” was my reply. “Give me a minute & I will join you.” I am going to greatly miss those late night calls with my friend!! Cheers, Irene till we meet again!! ❤️

Milton and I would like to share our heart felt sympathies to Irene’s family, friends, everyone who knew and loved her. We are all grieving the loss of of this wonderful, kind, caring and loving lady, who has touch our lives in such positive ways. Irene was so proud of her children, Moira and Steven, and her beautiful grand children; whom she was so proud of and loved so much. She would always keep us updated with photos and stories, of their accomplishments. I always enjoyed my visits with my sister in law, she was such a positive person to be around. Irene had a personality bigger than her. Everyone who has known her are truly blessed and will have many comforting memories to hold close in their hearts. Heaven has a new angel. Rest In Peace Irene❤️❤️ Wanda and Milton Vacon
