So sorry for your loss.  Irene was a wonderful woman.  I always remember as a child being at the funeral home in Plymouth chatting with her and my grandma Vi.  She gave me a hand painted tea cup and saucer in which I still have and have always cherished.  I think it is a blessing that she lead such a long and full life.  Your family is in my prayers.

I have great memories of Orin and Irene, from when I was just a little shaver. I used to go upstairs at the funeral home in Plymouth and visit with Irene. She also gave me a tour of the Hammond organ when the funeral home got a new one. I have not seen her for many years, but I'm sure she retained her wit and good humor. She will, no doubt, bring many smiles to heaven!!

Dear Rodney,

I have a feeling this was your mother, I remember when you and Jerry came from Plymouth to Sixth and spring working with Howard.
I will keep her in my prayers these next few days and I will never forget your brother Jerry, he was very kind to me as a boy when I was at Soldiers home chapel. All I can say, a good family here, and she must had been a good mother too.
God rest her soul.

Dear Rod, Karen and families:

I was saddened to hear of your mother's passing; and thinking of her reminds me of my childhood visits to Plymouth in the 1960's visiting my grandmother at her nursing home.  I remember fondly both of your parents and will always remember how kind they were to my family, of which we are forever grateful.  What a remarkable life your mother lived, a milestone few achieve!  Please accept my sincere sympathy and may God bless each of you during this time.

Dear Cookson Family-
My father was Robert Young, son of Fred and Grace Young of Plymouth.  I can remember as a little girl spending time with my grandparents going to visit your Mom at her home.  I believe she and my Grandma were good friends.  I had no idea she was still living.  My sisters and I have spoken many times of her and our memories of her.  Fred and Grace passed on many years ago, but I treasure each memory of that era when we would travel to Plymouth to visit .  What a life she has enjoyed and I'm truly sorry for your loss.
God bless you and yours this Christmas season,
Cindy Garrett

Sincere condolences to you Rod, Karen, Barb and your families. Irene was a grand lady and admired by many as well as myself. Remember her making our corsages for Proms and special events while a teenager with her special "wit" and pleasant demeanor! Many memories of her community involvement, singing and caring so much. Thanks, Irene, for touching my life. Hugs to my best friend (BFF) Karen, & Rod,

I'm so sorry to hear about Irene passing.  She was a strong influence on many lives, including mine.  Even when a scrawny nuisance paperboy delivered her paper she always took time to make sure he was warm or dry. l had something to drink on hot days and plenty of cookies on Christmas.  At the time I didn't appreciate her quick wit, but even today I can hear her voice and laughter when I would subject myself to moments of comical decisions.  Her gardens were her pride and joy.  On many occasions sharing her abundant yield with me.  Onions, turnips, and radishes.  Oh yes, we can't forget the radishes ... right Rod?  And we can't forget the love and memories I have of Irene.  My love is with all your family, friends, and you during this passing.  Hugs and kisses to you and your family in this time of grief.  John and Karen.
