May you rest eternally Aunt Irene. I remember our Easter vacations in Ohio and the several trips my parents made to visit you. You were an exceptional woman and never let anything bother you. I’m truly grateful we were able to keep in touch especially the last year. You will be sorely missed
My condolences to Lori and family . Irene was a wonderful person. Have memories of her stopping for me each school day for 6 years. We were classmates in the Shadyside Class of l944. I don’t believe she ever missed a day of school in those 6 years. She was shy, but I hardly got a word in, while we walked to school. She was a good student. So sorry that she had such medical problems in her last few years. She is pain free now—-May she rest in peace. I will miss seeing my friend at the Sat. evening Mass.
When someone you love dies, it hurts deeply. Sorry for your loss. It is my hope that you find comfort through prayer(Philippians 4:6&7). God the father of our Lord Jesus Christ is the hearer of Prayer (Psalms 65:2). He invites all to throw our burden on himand he will sustain you through this difficult times.

Sorry for your loss, your mother and dad were an inspiration to me. They never missed mass no matter how much pain they were in, may they both be happy in Heaven together, may God bless and keep them safe!!
Lori, David and I are very sorry for your loss. We will both remember your mom as she watched Logan and Cody play baseball. She will always be with you Lori. God Bless you my friend.
