Irene was such a special person who will greatly be missed by everyone.
We got to know Irene and Bob thru all of the Ryan parties. She and Bob made you fell at easy around them. Her great smile said it all.

All too often a mother’s legacy is only created behind closed family doors; An elegant family favorite meal, clean clothes to wear to school, or a gentle hug at the end of a difficult day. Absolutely she did these things without a doubt. But perhaps more important and left for all the public to witness is one that Irene created to near as perfect as any. A loving family of incredible integrity that will carry on her gentle nature for years to come. Natalie and I feel honored to share them all as friends.  God bless her, Bob, and that wonderful family I speak of.

Aunt Irene was the most gracious women I knew. She made you feel welcome and at home. For a couple of years I was a next door neighbor and dropped by many times for visits. She was always smiling and happy to see me. Her Chicken Paprikash and Beef Bourguignon was delicious.

I listened for an hour while she confessed her misgivings to me. Finally asking me what she should do? My first silly answer was, " Why don"t you marry me" Then her surprised question---" Do you mean that ? I . Believing she would reject my reply I was stunned by her question and sat quietly for a moment , then I said " yes " " Her reply was ' O , K. and it lasted 66 wonderful years.
