Condolences & Memories (1 entries)

  • Irene and I meet at church/home group many years ago. When I desperately needed assistance handling my large public school N-K classes, Irene stepped up and offered her help by volunteering and substitute teaching in my room, (even though she was retired and had never worked with such young children before). Irene's unconditional love and acceptance touched the lives of so many young children and their families, as well as mine and the staff at my Wpg SD schools. "Auntie Irene" will be remembered fondly by the hundreds of lives she made brighter. Her smile, hugs and her laughter live on in those memories.
