Stella, was so sorry hearing about your mom. I was working, Linda has a terrible upper respitory infection. We couldn’t make it. Our thoughts were on you and Nancy. If you ever get time, call Linda, her phone number is 304-780-3986. Linda Boggs Goddard and sister Diana

Great sorrow at her passing. She was a wonderful friend and a second mother to my children. My thoughts are with her children and grandchildren.

Goodbye Irene… some of my fondest childhood moments were spent at Irene’s house, sleeping in her guest room, having her brush my hair before bed, waking up to plate-sized pancakes… I remember the spiral bound notebook where she kept all her “kids” names… she never drove, took a taxi everywhere she needed to go… never met a stranger. She took care of me when I was a tiny baby, an unsteady toddler, a chatty child and a surly teenager and loved me at every age. She was an amazing woman…

Sorry for your loss. May the family’s reliance on Jehovah, the God of all comfort and the hearer of prayer, help you all endure through this difficult time of grief. Psalms 65:2; 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

To all those that knew Irene knew she liked people and talking. She would talk to everyone that past by, even if just to say hello and ask about their day. She was the sweetest lady I had ever met and would help anyone do anything. She will be missed by many. RIP Irene. I love you lady.
