The angels are always near to those who are grieving, to whisper to them that their loved ones are safe in the hand of God. ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994

This memorial website was created in the memory of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend Irene Meyer, 87.  Irene was born on February 18, 1926 and passed away on May 5, 2013.

Irene's passion in recent years was her family and the time that she was able to spend at her church, St. Thomas More and  the Ladies Auxillary at the American Legion in St.James.  In her earlier years, Irene loved to spend time at the ocean, especially with her sister Helen and kids while her boys Ed and Steven were growing up.  Later, she spent many happy hours with her grandchildren playing board games and baking all of their favorite treats.  Irene was an animal lover who rarely said no to a pet in need. She was a very gentle soul who will be greatly missed.

Irene is survived by her husband Edmund Jr, sons Edmund III and Steven, grandchildren Ed, Michelle, Russell and Keith, great grandchildren Brianna and Dylan, sister Marion and sons,Joe and James, nieces Donna and Wendy, along with countless other friends and family.     

Irene requested a private funeral. The family wishes to thank all of those who sent her well wishes over the last six months. Donations may be made to the Catholic Charities of Long Island, or direct contact to: Catholic Charities, 155 Indian Head Rd Commack, NY (631) 543-6200

I've had the pleasure over the past 8 years to spend a little time with Irene and found her to be a gentle, creative and sensitive person. She enjoyed hours of reading and knitting. She made dinner one evening for her son's Stevens birthday and we shared our thoughts and laughed a bit. It was to be the last time I would see Irene. She died a few months later. Rest in peace in heaven Irene.
