    Glenda – our heart felt sympathy to you and your family. I knew Irene from my years at the Chiropractic Clinic and her time at the Manor. She always took the time to stop and say hello to my Mother Peggy. My Daughter Emily and I loved her spunk and sence of humor and will truly miss seeing and talking to her when we visit.

    Your Mom was a wonderful person. I first met her as a volunteer at Thorncliffe-Greenview and enjoyed working with her and Bob. She was proud of her family (even though she didn’t always sound like it) My thoughts are with you at this sad time. Winnie Hansen

    I had the pleasure of knowing Irene through being a previous employee at the Manor in Huntington. I soon figured out that Irene was a strong spirited, lovely lady that I shared many great conversations with while working on the front desk in the evenings. I sincerely liked her quick wit and honesty,
    Condolences to all of the family.

    Best regards,
    Sue Sylvestre
