She was a 13-year volunteer for the American Red Cross and had attended First Alliance Church and Westwood Alliance Church.

A devoted mother and loving grandmother, Irene was blessed with a wry sense of humor.

She was preceded in death by two sisters Esther Howell and Edith Porch and a brother Raymond Swendal.

The funeral service will be held Wednesday December 3, 2003 at 11 am in the Lexington Avenue Snyder Funeral Home. Pastor James Berry will officiate. Burial will be in Mansfield Memorial Park. Friends may call at the funeral home the hour prior to the funeral service.
