Irene was a friend of our grandparents (John & Irene Kahler). She was always so kind. Thoughts and prayers to the family at this time.

The Nelsons were next door neighbors to my parents, Ross & Mabel Greer for many years. They were so kind when Ross passed and again when Leann (Dan's wife) passed. May you find peace in comfort in knowing that Irene now has no physical pain and is resting in the comfort of heaven.

Irene was my dad's cousin. I have fond memories of Irene. When I was a child, I would travel with my mom and dad, Marie & George Fleming, to Gregory, SD, to visit my grandma. While in Gregory, we would stay with Sob and Irene. What a fun time.
I remember Irene always having a smile on her face. She was an upbeat, fun person to be around, and had a great laugh.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Loraine, her brothers, and their families.
Irene thanks for the memories. RIP.

Love, Pearl Ann (Fleming) Sorensen
