Grandma Irene was a remarkable woman. Steady, determined, opinionated, kind, and thoughtful. Few people looked forward to each day with as much enthusiasm. She studied the Bible and went to church regularly, always trusting that God would take care of her. And he did. Grandma died peacefully in her sleep at the age of 104.
She will be missed by dozens and dozens of grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great, great grandchildren.
