    So saddened to hear of Irene’s passing. My sympathies to Ken, Cynthia, Sandra and Lyanne. Irene was a very elegant lady, always smiling and so proud of her family. I have many fond memories of Irene leading the St. Joseph School Governing Board in the 90’s. Fair-minded and sensible, Irene always had the best interests of the school's students and staff at heart. Irene left a strong impression with me and with many. Rest in Peace, Irene.
