Many memories of Arnet and Irene from growing up in the Loomis church; Irene and my dad, Bob, were great musicians singing together in choirs and quartets. What a good long life she lived.

My sincere sympathy to you. Irene was one of my first Sunday school teachers in the Loomis Church. She was also very active in the music program in the church. She was so kind and such a helpful friend to my Aunt Lucille Thrift. I have many fond memories of her. She lived a good long life.
