Hartley, brother to Irene, shares with all, amid personal sadness, yet rejoicing, that Irene has changed addresses from her temporary earthly abode to her eternal heavenly home with the Lord and is now free of her sufferings. Irene passed away at the Red River Valley Lodge in Morris MB shortly after 8 P.M. on Tuesday, March 17, 2020 after a residency there of approximately 21/2 years.
A sincere thanks and gratitude is extended to all staff members at the Lodge for the love and compassion extended to Irene while under their care. A sincere thank you, as well, to all medical professionals who cared for Irene during various times of admittance to hospital at Morris, and elsewhere in the province, during her life span.
She was predeceased by her parents Gotlieb and Maria Schwark, two sisters: Evelyn and Marlene, and three half sisters.
A graveside service of interment will be held Tuesday, March 24, 2020 at 2:00pm at the Morris Cemetery, in Morris Manitoba. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
