WELSH, IRENE LOTTIE (nee SCHLEPPE)
1926 ~ 2013
Irene Lottie Welsh
passed away peacefully on April 25th at the age
of 86 years. She is
lovingly remembered by her son Jim (Carol), son George (Bev), daughter Sharon (Martin), daughter Doreen, son Wayne
(Nicole), along with
11 grandchildren, 13 great grandchildren,
nephews and many friends. Irene was predeceased by
her loving husband Cyril, all
of her siblings, her parents,
numerous family members
and son-in-law John Martin. Mom was a member of the Catholic Women’s League and enjoyed countless hours of volunteer services at The Share Depot. She loved camping with friends and family, playing cards which was always full
of laughter and silly antics. She was fortunate enough to travel to many beautiful destinations and enjoyed her
retirement to the fullest. Her beautiful smile, sparkling
eyes and sense of humor was radiant until the very end. We will all miss her jovial laughter, and the reminiscing
of all she had accomplished in her youthful years.
For those of us fortunate enough to share in her life
realized she was a woman full of wonderful stories and could write a book for all she had been through. We have been truly blessed to have such a wonderful mother,
friend and companion and our hearts are full knowing
she is embraced in the loving arms of God and the Angels. She left us with a smile, knowing her journey here was
complete and returned home to her loving husband and family waiting in heaven above. You will be so missed and we are forever blessed to have shared our lives, love and laughter with you. You were the best that God had to offer, and we thank you for teaching us what Love truly is.
