Irene lived a wonderful and long life. She never uttered a bad word about anyone and ended every conversation with the words “tell everyone I love them”. After living in San Diego for 3 years during WW2 while her husband served in the USMC, they moved back to Rochester to raise their family. She was an avid card player & cherished her decades-long weekly Canasta group.
