Condolences to Irene's children, siblings, grandchildren, great grandchildren, cousins, other family members and friends. My mom sends her love and deepest sympathies saying that she and Auntie Little were always close to Irene. She reminisced that Irene grew up with her and Auntie Little in Gasparillo in the late 1930s and 1940s (from small), and went to primary school in Gasparillo while they attended high school. My mom, Sheila says to let you know she loved Irene like a sister, and would always spend time with her in Poole when she visited. She says it is unbelievable that both Irene and Shirley (Little) died this year. She also mentioned the passing of two of her cousins as well: Clifford Rampaul and Pam Ramsahai. Both of them died from Covid-related complications. Please take care of yourselves to stay healthy. On behalf of my mom, my family in Nebraska, and my siblings in Trinidad and Canada, please know that we are holding you in our prayers and sending you love, positive energy, encouragement and support. Be well Irene's cousin, Dennison Suresh Bhola

Rest in peace Irene. We’ll always remember our time with you and your sense of humor. There is barely a time we remember when we weren’t laughing with you. From helping us when Amanda was first born, to walking into your house and being offered the mandatory cup of tea, which we had to take because you wouldn’t take no for an answer, we’ll always remember your generous and kind spirit. You always helped when you were most needed and you could see the humor in every situation. As an aunt, as a sister-in-law, and a sister, we’ll miss you, your kind heart, your dedication, and love. We will always remember you.

Auntie Irene, we will never forget you! You were a very kind person and always pleasant. We will see you again. Rest easy Auntie Irene! You took me from Poole to Gasparillo by Bus the year before you migrated to the USA, this was to spend Holidays..I felt so special, you took care of me, and made sure I was at ease. I remember all the details of that bus ride like it way yesterday. Bye for now. Until we meet again!
