I did not know Irene well, but remember her as a happy and positive person who always had a smile for us. Great memories of singing with you in the youth group, Lorna. I am so sorry for the loss of a wonderful mother, wife, sister, grandmother, and friend

Remember times when Aunt Irene would come out to the Farm at Hilda to help out Mom with us two boys, special times they where. I also remember one time Herb coming out to take Irene for a country side ride.
Thoughts and prayers are with you.

The Arndt Familes;

When we were growing up we were lucky in that everybody’s’ Mom, “Mommed” everyone in the neighborhood...Mrs. Arndt always had a bandage or could fix eyes that were leaking, Mrs. MacLead would always ensure justice was done! Thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.... Hugs ❣️🌹Arlene Cooper😇🙏🏻
