Predeceased by her late husband, Rodrick (1986), grand-daughter, Shannon (1984) and son, Brian (2021).

Ireen will be greatly missed by her daughters, Patti Ringel & Debbie Schilling (Orville). Ireen was deeply treasured by her grandchildren, Bradley Schilling (Zsofia), Angie Schilling, Josh Schilling (Kristy) & Joel Schilling. Cortney Turner (Dillon) & Cassie Chartrand (Matt) and even more blessed by her great -grandchildren Victoria Schilling, Carter & Claire Turner, Mara & Cayde Chartrand.

Ireen lived a very fulfilling life from getting married at the young age of 17, to having 3 children, she was also a nurse, something she loved and had many stories about. After she retired from nursing, she started spending her time excelling at baking, something she had fond memories of when she was a child. She would often say baking helped keep her young. She always had to have something homemade for when the grandkids and great-grandkids came by for a visit.

Ireen's family would like to share appreciation and thanks to all the staff at Innisfree Hospice for all their love and care they provided Ireen over her last couple of days.

Private cremation has taken place. Final resting place in Walkerton, ON with her husband. Arrangements entrusted to the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener, 519-749-8467.

As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Grand River Hospital Foundation - Cancer Centre or Lisaard and Innisfree House would be appreciated by the family (cards available at the funeral home).
