Irene was the nicest lady. My Father is Charles Gillingham, he and Esther Myers would spend every Friday night at the Benwood Legion along with Russell and Sophie, my husband Greg and I would join them on occasion. I always laughed because they would bring their own snacks with them. My father sure misses his Friday nights with friends as they have all passed on to Gods hands. Irene was so kind and always had such a beautiful smile. Our sincere Condolences.
Our thoughts and prayers extend to you in your time of loss. We thank you for the brief time we had with Irene and will miss her greatly. She was a graceful and lovely woman who brought a smile to our faces every day.
Our Sincere Condolences,
Your Brookdale Creekside Family
