Irene Marjorie Ida Greenhalgh

  • Born: 2 March 1941
  • Died: 3 March 2019

ONE IN A MILLION

Irene (known to her family and friends as Rene) was born in Brighton on the 2nd March 1941 where she lived until the tender age of 16. Swept off her feet by a tall dark handsome sailor, our dad Robert Greenhalgh, Irene moved North to start her new life and family. Mother to Five children, four boys and one girl, Irene was in later life blessed with numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren who she loved dearly and took a lot of pleasure in. Irene worked in many different places, but her love and passion was always in caring for others and she loved her job as a support worker for adults with learning difficulties not retiring until in her 70's. Irene throughout her life always had a goal to reach, whether it be her next holiday, cruise or life event... she had a positivity and a strength of spirit within her that was unwavering. One of the strongest people .... sadly Irene lost her fight on 3rd March 2019, aged just 78 years young. Her final days were as she had wished in her home, surrounded by her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We will all have our own special memories of Irene, whether its as our mother, grandma, great grandma or friend, but one thing that we will all most likely agree on is that Irene was indeed 'one in a million'...... Please take time to write on mum's memorial page..... remember though in your head if she catches you crying, your more than likely to hear her telling you to 'put your face straight' ...... PLEASE NOTE MUM REQUESTED NOT TO HAVE ANY FLOWERS AS SHE WISHED DONATIONS TO GO TO THE CECELIA CENTRE AT WYTHENSHAWE HOSPITAL. IF YOU WISH TO MAKE A DONATION PLEASE PASS THIS TO THE UNDERTAKERS. THANK YOU.
