A joy

It was a pleasure to work with Irene at Sacred Heart School in Langton.. Irene loved her students and gave each one a hug as they left the classroom each day. She arrived at school by 7am every morning and had her happy class environment ready for her students at the sound of the morning bell.I think she was there even earlier than the custodians.

Irene had a joyous laugh.She was a great staff member who dedicated her life to her vocation and to her students.Rest in Peace,Irene.

My condolences

I am thankful to have had the opportunity to work with her for several years at Sacred Heart School and extend my condolences to her sister Lorraine and the rest of the family she leaves behind.
