Irene Minnie Phillips
(June 19, 1923 – January 9, 2013)
Born in Manchester, England, Irene will be sadly missed and ever remembered by her sons and their families John and Jean, Alan and Terry, grandsons Colin, wife Crystal, and Richard. Irene will also be missed by her special friend of over 80 years, Hilda Stephen of Stockport, England.
Irene came to Canada in 1948, settling in Telkwa with husband Bob, whom she had met during the war. Several years ago she moved to Prince George to be closer to family.
Predeceased by Bob and sisters Doris and Alma, she leaves loving family and friends in England, New Zealand, Canada and the USA. Irene was an exceptional lady, a strong, loving person who showed kindness to all and was admired for her positive outlook no matter what life threw her way.
The family would like to express its appreciation to Dr. Mah, the caregivers at Simon Fraser Lodge, UHNBC and the Rotary Hospice House for their wonderful care of Irene. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Rotary Hospice House (3089 Clapperton St. Prince George, BC V2L 5N4) or a charity of your choice would be appreciated. A graveside service will be held in Telkwa at a later date.
