    I am a special needs teacher with The Education Cooperative. Our classroom is at Westwood High School. My students volunteer at the Westwood COA. We all loved Irene! Irene always had a big smile and made our students feel so welcome and valued. She made sure our students got a piece of candy at the end of their shift! I loved Irene’s wit and her sweet nature. We will remember her with fondness, and miss seeing her at the COA.

    I knew Irene decades ago when we both worked at Commercial Union in Boston. Her great sense of humor, her kindness, and her ability to take challenges in stride made her memorable. Though I have not seen her in years, I know the world is less lucky without her here.
