Irene was born in Toronto and moved to Yorkton with her family in 1966. Developmentally delayed from birth, Irene had family and many other people assisting her in most areas of her life. She was a client of the Sheltered Workshop in Yorkton for many years and received a plaque recognizing 20 years of dedicated service to the Saskatchewan Abilities Council (1987). After her father's death, she and her mother moved to St. Albert, AB (1986) and then to Calgary (1993) to be near her brother and his family. In Calgary, she participated in the Options Day Program while living with a supportive roommate. As Irene's health declined, she moved into long term care (2009) and the family is grateful for the compassionate care she received from all of the staff at Bethany Care Centre in Calgary. Funeral will be held at St. Mary's Ukrainian Catholic Church, Yorkton, SK on Friday, January 12, 2018 at 10:00 am. She will be laid to rest beside her parents in the Yorkton City Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Bethany Care Foundation, 1001 - 17 Street NW, Calgary, AB T2N 2E5. Condolences can be sent to the family at
