Irene Gertrude Barrett (Hogan) Fox, Age 91, passed into the arms of her Saviour, Jesus Christ on November 18, 2020 at Pioneer Ridge with family by her side.

Harry predeceased Irene in 1961. She later married Eric Fox and they became the proud parents of two more girls. Her family was her main interest and after they were on their own, she volunteered for four years at Arc Industries before being hired for four more years. She loved scrabble and played many games during her senior years. Eric and Irene celebrated their 50th anniversary on September 11, 2012.
