Irene was born in Dauphin, Manitoba on

November 27, 2008 after a wonderful life.
Mom is survived by her brother, Douglas Marsden of Qualicum Beach, and her children, John (Rosemary), Douglas (Susan), Brian (Anna), Patricia (Colin), and Margaret (David). Mom was so proud of all of her grandchildren and her great-grandchild, Thomas (Rhonda) and Gilbert, Christopher (Misty), Gregg, Mya, Robin, Mischa, Kyle, Graham, Jenna, Dominic, Robert, and Alyson.
Mom was predeceased by her beloved husband, Archie. They are both much loved and will always be remembered.
The family extends a special thank-you to Dr. Loughead and staff, and to the very caring and supportive staff at NRGH Palliative Care.
A Memorial Service will be held at Knox United Church, 345 Pym Street in Parksville, B.C. at 2PM on December 20, 2008.
Mom always had a strong belief in God’s presence in nature and requested that those who wish to make donations do so to Moorecroft United Church Camp, 1563 Stewart Road, Nanoose Bay, B.C., V9P 9E7.
