I was so sadden to hear of Aunt Irene's passing and would like to express my condolences to Richard and Wayne. I know what a tough year this must have been for you, losing your mom and brother within 3 months of each other. My memories of them are filled with great and wonderful times.

What a delight to have been able to share so many wonderful moments with such a beautiful soul. Aunt Irene showed us all how to laugh, love and be a faithful servant to Jesus Christ our Savior. I will always treasure the memories of talking and laughing sometimes til 3 am. I am so glad I got to know her. Rest in the loving arms of The Lord sweet Lady. You will always be in my heart and my smile. Love your niece, Kathy Sok

My condolences to Irene's family. I grew up with Irene's son Wayne, and I probably spent as much time at Leo and Irene's home as I did at my home. R.I.P. Irene

I will truly miss Aunt Irene. I have very fond memories of her being a gentle and kind woman. She took care of her family and was a very hard worker. I treasure the crotchet doilies she made for my sister, Kathy, and me. She had to be resilient being around my dad, Floyd, Leo's brother, and all the Soks. The Sok clan is a tough bunch. May she Rest In Peace, for her work here is done. God bless you, Aunt Irene. We love you!
