My family had the lucky privilege to live next to Irene these past 20 years. She was a beautiful lady, and was always so good to my boys. In the wintertime, they would shovel her walkway and there was always a Hershey bar at the ready!
Miss Irene always had huge parties every weekend- her family showed their love and gratitude for her constantly.
We will miss her very very much.
