It is with great sorrow we announce the unexpected
passing of our mother Irene.
Irene was born in Vancouver, BC. Most of her upbringing was in Port Alberni, BC, where she met, married, and began raising a family with the love of her life, Ray Marcellus. They moved their young family to Quesnel, BC shortly after their daughters were born, and later had a son.
They remained in Quesnel for the rest of their days.
Irene was a devoted wife and mother, an absolutely incredible cook, a caretaker to any friend in need, and she loved her pets. She was predeceased by her husband Ray, and she will be remembered fondly by Linda, Bill, Amanda, Sonya, John, Emily, Anna, Donald, Akemi, Makoto,
Rei, and many others.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 PM Sunday January 24, 2016 at the Royal Canadian Legion – Branch #94, 262 Kinchant Street in Quesnel. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation, or the BC Cancer Foundation.
