Jan. 28, 1936 – June 18, 2007

She is survived by her brothers Tom and Clifford Yamelst; her children Violet Kirkpatrick, Joyce Gommert, Herman Giebler, Robert Giebler and Lisa Timmerman; grandchildren Tara, Jeff, Jessica and Tia; great-grandson Alex.
Irene was a very spunky lady with a heart of gold and a great sense of humour. She will be greatly missed.
A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, June 23, 1 pm. at her home.
‘Another piece of my heart was taken from me, as I watched you fade away.
You were my light, you were my strength, You were part of me.
I’m glad you’re at peace but it hurts so much, I just want to hold your hand.
You were a rose, sent down to us, and we were lucky enough to enjoy your beauty for as long as we had.
You were my mother, my best friend, my rose.’
I’ll miss you, Lee
