Irene was always full of life, energy, and curiosity. She lived a 'green' life before it was popular. She was a natural gardener, and enjoyed growing both food and flowers. She found a way to reuse or recycle everything that came her way. She was creative and enjoyed many crafts, from quilting to cross stitch, willow basket making to jigsaw puzzles. Besides taking care of a house and six children, she enjoyed physical activities like hiking, biking, yoga, and even cross country skiing. She will be missed by all who knew her.
