Irene was born in Duff, Saskatchewan on August 30, 1931 to Adam and Caroline Schick and grew up with her brothers playing on the farm.
She was a lifelong member of the Royal Canadian Legion, and a member of the United Church Women.

Irene’s family was her priority.  She also loved to visit the casino, play dice and bingo, go for ice cream and always had a pat for the family dog.  Mom was an avid sports fan, cheering on the riders, Winnipeg Jets, and of course Dad’s beloved Toronto Maple Leafs, the Blue Jays and any curling event.  Mom also participated in the activities whichever facility she was in, enjoying especially the music of Barb and Aven, and gathering for afternoon tea.
Mom touched the hearts of many, and was loved by all who were fortunate to meet her.

Donations can be made on Irene’s behalf to The Royal Canadian Legion and The First United Church, located in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.
