Memories Timeline


  1. I was so happy to see Irene at Hobby Lobby. We talked quilts, fabrics, our frustration with virus limitations. She gave me a lesson on face shields, hers held in place by a cool straw hat. I am so sorry that she’s no longer with us.

  2. Irene, I will miss our long conversations about quilting and medical issues. Your generous heart will be greatly missed. Keep them hopping in heaven, my friend. 🙏💓🙏

  3. I will miss you Iren. You were always a straight shooter told it as it was. You would always say to me years ago, Sylvia stand up for yourself. You always loved to talk about your Grandchildren proud Grandma. Thank you for being a good Neighbor and Friend. RIP my Friend
