Irene has also left behind a total of 19 great nieces and six great nephews. Although Irene was never blessed with children of her own, she adored the children who came into her life and took them under her wing as if they were her own. Irene was best known for the love she freely gave to others, and for her love for life and animals. Irene was happiest when she was surrounded by her friends and loved ones, and she loved spending time outdoors with her horses and pets. Irene will be missed by all who knew her, and she will leave a huge void in the hearts of many.
