    Few people touch us who can make our life better. For me, Irene was that person. We were connected on so many levels-personal and professional, she was such a support. A good person, a loving person, a person with strong convictions- I’m grateful she was in my life. Sympathy and prayers to her children and grandchildren.

    Irene was such a vivacious and friendly person. She was always upbeat and positive. The students liked her and respected her. I can still picture her walking down the hall and making contact with everyone.

    I have worked with Irene for many years. She was dedicated and enjoyed her time with children. I know words are not of much help now, but you have many wonderful memories. Cherish them. In time, with Gods help, you will smile again .

  • John Esaias

    I worked with Irene at North Hills School District. Because of her high qualities, I recommended her for the position of assistant principal at North Hills Junior High School. She was an outstanding administrator who earned respect and admiration from the students, teachers, administrators and school board members. You have my deepest sympathy, and you can be comforted knowing that Irene had a positive impact on many individuals during her career in education. She was truly a lovely woman in every way.
