To all her children, her grand, great grand and great great grand children, sister Eleanor and brother Basil; We are very sorry to learn of the passing of Irene. When I was just a little boy in the New Grafton School Mrs. Morgan could not beat math into my brain but I used to ask Irene to help me. She just loved doing it and I learned it easily from her. Please take courage in reading the passage at John 5:38,39. It talks about the resurrection that Irene will receive some day. Our sympathy to you all, Del & Mary

To the Weare family. Thinking of you all at this sad time. Any time of the year is a hard time to lose a loved one but it is even harder at Christmas, As a child and going to school with Irenes children, and living in the same community we knew Irene as wonderful lady. She was a quiet lady but shared so much pride in her children. Irene and her husband bought my Grandparents homestead and raised some of their children in that home and that in itself always gave me a closeness of their family. RIP Irene, you were a hard worker,a great Mom, and Grandmother and Great Grandmother.
