At home on Thursday, June 14, 2018, with great love we -Peggy and Andy-were by Mom’s side as she left this earth to be reunited with our dad (Marvin-2014).
After a courageous battle with cancer, saying good-bye was super hard but knowing Mom is finally at peace and reunited with other loved ones gives us comfort and peace.
Mom will lovingly be remembered by Andy (Laurie Ormston) and Peggy and her husband Greg Van Staveren. Adored Grammy of Kristen, Victorian, Thomas, Grayson and Janneke. Mom will be dearly missed by her many nieces, nephews, extended family and lifelong friends in Brooklin.
A special thanks to Dr. Caroline McAllister, Dr. Morra, Dr. Banihashemi and Dr. Parajian and the LHIN team who helped Mom throughout her journey. In memory of Irene, memorial donations to RS McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Center, Oshawa would be appreciated.
Visitation will take place at BARNES MEMORIAL FUNERAL HOME, 5295 Thickson Rd. N, Whitby, ON (905-655-3662) on Sunday, June 24, 2018 at 1:00 pm.
