June 8, 1945 to October 10, 2019 ~ It is with great sadness that we announce Irene’s peaceful passing at Extendicare Van Daele, surrounded by the love of her Van Daele family and listening to her favourite song, “Jesus Loves Me” at the age of 74.

We miss her hugs, laughter, singing and wishing her Happy Birthday. She touched many lives in the 45 years that she lived at Van Daele and will always hold a special place in our hearts.

A huge thank you to the loving and caring staff at Van Daele for looking after Irene for the past 45 years.

A private service was held.

Memorial donations may be made to the Van Daele Residents Council (payable by cheque).

Arrangements entrusted to O’Sullivan Funeral Home and Cremation Centre (215 St. James St., Sault Ste Marie, P6A 1P7 705-759-8456)
