Peacefully at home on July 3, 2020 with her daughter Michelle by her side. Wife of the late David, sister of Violet, mother in law of Michael Clark, beloved Bapci to Aidan and Emma Clark and honorary grandma of every kid in the neighborhood. A fiercely independent woman who was a straight shooter with a heart of gold and a sweet tooth that knew no boundaries. A long-time fosterer of animals from the Toronto Animal Shelter, she saved and changed the lives of so many cats and kittens. Irene enjoyed tending to her immaculate garden, spoiling her grandchildren, the company of her many good friends and family, and was a devout observer of wine o’clock. Tough as nails, generous to a fault she will be deeply missed by those that knew her. Feet first Irene. Online condolences may be made through www.turnerporter.ca. In lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made in Irene's name to Toronto Animal Services.
