  • I am saddened to read of Irene’s passing. I graduated from high school with Irene. She was always the nicest person. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of Irene’s family and friends.

  • I was saddened to hear that Irene passed away. Mrs. H as we called her at Clayton Elementary School was so nice and supportive of the specials. When I arrived at Clayton as the new art teacher she made me feel so welcome! Irene was a fantastic first grade teacher. Even after she retired she would bring me art supplies that she collected . Mrs. H is in my thoughts , prayers, and heart. Irene will never be forgotten.
