July 12, 1954 - October 14, 2018
Passed away at Grace Manor on Sunday, October 14, 2018 at the age of 64. Loving daughter of Herta and the late Hans Beck.
Dear sister of Norman (Carol), Doris and Evelyn; cherished aunt of Graham (Jessica), Leah Hein (Eric), Philip (Julia), and Benjamin Bomberg. Irene also has a special place in the hearts of her aunts, uncle and cousins.
Irene was born in Sudbury and moved to Ottawa 28 years ago. Her beautiful spirit touched the lives of neighbours, co-workers, and friends, and she had a way of endearing herself to everyone she met. She had a gift of loving everyone. Irene expressed her generous love to others without reservation, offering huge hugs every chance she could. She had a great sense of humour and loved to laugh. Thinking of Irene can’t help but bring a smile to your face.
She thrived at H’Art of Ottawa (now BEING Studio), where her artistic flair flourished, and she reached considerable acclaim. In her words, she became a “famous artist”.
Irene so loved to sing and dance. Irene had a great faith and loved Jesus. She is now with Jesus and singing.
The family would like to thank the staff of the Salvation Army Grace Manor, Cindy Murphy of Total Communication Environment and Sarah Marcus for their loving care of Irene during the last four years.
Friends may visit at the Pinecrest Visitation Centre, 2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa on Friday, October 19, 2018 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Funeral Service to be held in the Chapel on Saturday, October 20 at 11 a.m. Donations may be made to BEING and Total Communication Environment (TCE).
