Irene was a dedicated member of St. Agatha Roman Catholic Church. For more than 60 years, Irene belonged to the Catholic Women’s League. Coming from a musical family, the Weber Trio sang on the CKNX Radio Station. Irene enjoyed sing-a-longs, board games, gardening, canning, sewing and lots of social time with family and friends. In her later years, her most joyful times were spent playing cards and participating in activities with her many friends at Beechwood Manor Retirement Home.
A heartfelt thank you to staff and volunteers at Beechwood Manor who became dear friends with Mom. Much gratitude is extended to the medical staff who helped keep Mom comfortable during her final days. She loved and was loved by so many. WE LOVE YOU MOM.
