    I remember Irene teaching Vacation Bible School at the Wesleyan Church where I attended as a child. She was so kind . It was so easy to be around her. My mother also did ceramics at her home which she thoroughly enjoyed! So sorry for your loss. Another pillar of Valton has gone home.

    What a treasure this lady was in my life! When I was just a teenager, I babysat at her house and have so many wonderful memories of our times together. Then when it was time for me to get married she offered to make me a beautiful!!!!!! wedding cake and then transported it 90 miles to the wedding!!!! She has always been a cheerleader and encourager in my life. I’m sure her greatest desire is that every one in her family be ready for heaven so the circle will be unbroken. I was richly blessed to have her in my life and I pray special prayers of comfort and peace for all her family.
