    Renie was truly a “Grand Lady”. She was one of the few people who could tease me and get away with it. I loved her dearly.Her compassion for others was unsurpassed, especially for those close to her.While our loss here,as painful as it is, will be a greater gain as she reunites with Frank and other family members.Millie and I will greatly miss you, IRENE McCormack.

    Didn’t know her well but sometimes you just know special people when you are around them briefly. Irene and Frank were great parents to great kids. I hope this family finds peace during this difficult time and will always find a smile when they think of Irene.
