  1. Bruce, lovelly service for your mum and you clearly got the vibe she had a great and full life. I still remember her and you dad from my visit back in th 90’s. My condolences and best wishes to you and the family.

  2. I did not remember Irene as well as I should have. We moved to Queensland 50 years ago, with work commitments I did not have much spare time and lost touch most of the time except for meeting Bruce while he was in Brisbane and consequently seeing Irene at that time. Seeing the photographs and reading all these tributes to Irene, brings back that which I did know, and have missed by losing the close touch we should have enjoyed. For that I am truly sorry.
    Keep Singing lovely lady, Rest peacefully, and enjoy what you have earned.

  3. R.I.P. auntie Irene. I’ll never forget the amazing woman you are. I loved randomly popping in to say g’day as a we tacker. It was even more special when we’d catch up in Albury a few years ago. I’m so glad you are with uncle Rob and Sandra Sending much love to the family.

  4. Irene I can still hear your voice over the phone when you would ring to speak to Bruce. I loved the little chin wags we would have before I’d hand the phone over to Bruce. A Beautiful soul you are and will be missed so much. Your boy and I had heaps of fun living together and it’s easy to see where his good and generous nature came from. We loved catching up with you years back when you came up to Brisbane to see Bruce & Bela and wish we could have had 1 last chat. You & I exchanged birthday cards for a few years there and that was lovely. Love & hugs to Bruce & Bela and extended family. Thank you for inviting me to see your mum’s funeral on live stream since COVID meant we couldn’t come down. Love Cath, Dale, Tahlia & Jai xxxxx

  5. Thank you Aunty Irene for being such a wonderful and generous person, you will remain in my heart forever. I treasure the times that we shared with you and Uncle Robert on your annual holidays to Tomakin and for your loving and thoughtful nature coupled with your sense of humor. I recall your telling me when I was suddenly single after 18 years that you were on the lookout for a good man when you were riding on the buses. You made me happy and you made me laugh. Thank you. And thank you Bruce, Jamie and Glen for letting us (myself and husband Mario) join the beautiful service today and hear about your lives with your Mum and Dad. Love to all of you and your families from Cousin Jenny.

  6. Our Condolences to Rene’s family. Our thoughts & prayers are with you at this sad time. Rene was a wonderful lady, never forgotten. John & Pam Lawler (Duggan)

  7. Goodbye Mum, say hello to Dad and Ian. My one regret is that I was not invited, nor allowed to be a guest at your memorial service.

    Your loving and caring son,

    Jamie, Lynelle, Josh, Emma and Ben

  8. What a lovely remembrance in such difficult times. Hugs to you all. I’m glad I had Irene in my life – she was devoted to Rob and to her whole family. And as I learned during the service, to others in her community too. She was always kind, and happy, and content with her lot, even when things were bad. Lots of love. Stay safe. Stay well. And hold your memories of Irene close to your heart.

  9. I have fond memories of Auntie Irene, always so bubbly and joyful.
    Although we did not see much of each other of the past years, she and Uncle Rob were often in my thoughts.

    Thank you for sharing this time.


    1. Irene I remember the chin wags we would have over the phone when you would call for Bruce and can still hear the sound of your voice. Bruce & I had so much fun living together and it’s easy to see where his good nature, generosity and loyalty comes from. I loved catching up with you & Bob again at Bruce’s place a number of years back, and know that you will be greatly missed. Bruce & Bela are with you in spirit. Thank you for letting us be a part of your mum’s celebration of life xxxx

  10. What a beautiful service, for a beautiful lady. I always remember Irene being so welcoming and accepting of me, even when I last saw her at Bruce and Leila’s wedding, she had a smile and a kind word, and was so happy to meet my sons.
    Rest in Peace, Irene.


  11. Irene your Beloved Boys & gorgeous granddaughter Bela, obviously needed another Angel to watch over them. I know they will miss you terribly. Fly free now you’re singing with the other Angels.
