She was always so kind to me & my boys. She was also a loving Grandmother. I will always remember the times I shared with her. My heart is full of joy knowing she is with our Lord. Much love and prayers to all the family but especially to Mr. Meguess.

Irene was always such a quietly thoughtful person whenever I was around her. Although I did not know her very long, she made the impression of caring greatly for other people. For instance, one nite at Bonko in Italian Pie, she asked us if we would stop & pray for a Texas friend who was battling cancer. This greatly impressed me, and I never forgot it. May her family & friends take comfort in knowing that even those who knew her briefly were touched by her thoughtfulness toward others. May she Rest In Peace in the arms of Jeaus!

Sharing in everyone's sadness as I remember my beloved Great-Aunt Irene...and a great aunt she was. We younger generation, are privileged to have had such an amazing lady in our family that we could look up to for support and guidance throughout the years...and of course, her unconditional love (and we can't forget, her millionaire candies). No one will be able to fill her shoes. She was greatly loved and will be deeply missed. My deepest and most heartfelt condolences to Uncle Larry, cousin Gene and family, and cousin Kyle and family during this time of grief. With love and sympathy, Christena

I proofread for Irene several years. She was such a great court reporter and friend. So very sorry to hear of her passing. May God be with her family during this time of grieving.

It is said that if you have three genuine friends in your life, you are a well balanced person. Irene was one of my three. She will be so missed. My mind is just now letting my heart grasp her passing and Bob and I mourn her so. Larry, Gene and Kyle, with their families, are in our prayers. We love you all and grieve with you.
