I will miss Irene....talking to her and working with her in the Potter County DES office. She is a kind soul and so much fun to hold a conversation with. There is something very special in her voice and her kindness radiated thru her and spread to everyone around her. This was such a shock and I will never forget her looking like a million bucks in her mud boots trapping mosquitos. She is a classy lady and so beautiful. Irene, I will think of you often and I am really mad at myself for missing our last lunch date.

I know God is blessed today to have you near him.
Sympathy to Jerry, he is such a great guy and they were such a great team together.

Irene always had a smile and special glow when she was around. She certainly knew how to brighten up your day ! I will certainly miss "The Bug Lady." So glad we got to share lunch together a few weeks ago. I will certainly miss our little chats. Thoughts and prayers to Jerry and the family. Irene was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend.
