The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Dr. Carol Boutilier for her devoted care and friendship to Irene; to Trish MacDonald and Donna MacLellan for their loving care and kindness to Irene; and to Joey Barrett for being a great friend and support for many years. Cremation has taken place. A private family service will take place at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the IWK or to a charity of your choice.
