Relation: family friend

Irene was our mother’s dearest friend and to us ‘kids’, our ‘other Mom.’ Not only did Irene influence our upbringing, her love of life and nature so aptly portrayed in her poetry, short stories and ‘Alberta Trails’ is a legacy she’s left everyone. In her last days, Irene didn’t remember all, but she will truly be remembered. With love, Ruth, Gary, Susan, Brian & Murray (Andrishak)
