I'm so saddened to read of Irene's passing. Irene was a devoted fan of "The Night at the Copa" show. We were delighted to see her each Monday evening when we performed at the Pikesville McDonald's. I also saw her at Woodholme Gardens where she was a resident and I always looked forward to a big kiss and seeing her beautiful smile. May her memory always be a blessing.

Jeff and Stuart and Family,

I am just hearing about your beloved Irene's death and send sincere condolences from the Brown family in Chicago. We go back a long long time with you and your family. My parents were dear friends of Irene (Western High School and the neighborhood), Morty and Wilber, and I worked for Morty in the pharmacy when I was in high school.

I saw the tributes which captured well the love and loyalty and caring that defined Irene. Whenever I saw her over the years, though infrequent, she always told me how much she missed my mother. And she meant it, it was clear.

She was a wonderful person and her memory is surely a blessing.


The Shere-Wolfe Family (Kiran, Renxian, Kal and Roger)

Irene led a rich and full life and was much loved by her family. Our heartfealt condolences to all of you for your loss.

I am so sorry to learn of your loss. I loved Irene (as did everyone who crossed her path). She was another "grandmother" to my children. They always got so excited when she and their grandfather, Wilbur, would stop by our house after McDonald's on Monday nights. She attended every parent or grandparent event, at my kid's schools, and all of Julian's CCM concerts. Her huge smile filled up any room. Irene was a dear sweet woman who we will always remember fondly. May the pain of your loss soon be replaced with happy memories of the wonderful years you had with her.
