We Remember

NYGREN, Irene Maria

August 13, 1928 — January 17, 2022

The family of Irene Nygren are profoundly saddened to announce that their mom passed away at Hospice House on Monday, January 17, 2022, in Kelowna, BC. She was a healthy 93-year-old vibrant social butterfly who was an engaged and active member of her community at The Dorchester. Irene loved playing games and cards, as well as attending social events and connecting with her fellow residents. She also liked to connect with her family through texting, emails, and phone calls on a daily basis. She will be remembered for her vibrancy, and of course her matching outfits.

Irene was predeceased by her husband, Gordon (d. Nov 2018); grandson Shane; sister Florence; and brother Wilfred. She is survived by six sons: Richard (Kathleen), Dave (Lorraine), Howard (Kris), Dale (Violet), Gerald (Ruth), and Kevin; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren, whom she loved dearly; as well as many nephews, nieces, and other extended family. They will miss her daily contact.

The family would like to express their gratitude to The Dorchester where their mom thrived; the ambulance crew; Emergency Room; and 2 West Kelowna General Hospital, doctors & nursing staff both; all for their professionalism and care. They also wish to thank the wonderful Hospice House staff who made her final 24 hours comfortable.

Psalm 23:1
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

Interment will take place in Golden, BC at a later date.
