Irene (Torchy/Rusty) was born in Winnipeg, the middle daughter of 5 to George and Margaret Munro.
They moved to Saskatoon when she was 3 and in her youth was active in speed skating and women’s fastball.
She worked at Obe’s confectionary and the Gem café and after graduation from Tech worked for the Royal Bank.
Howard and Irene were married in 1953 and bought their brand new forever home in 1959 where they raised their family.
She was a loving and kind mother, who had a full life and will be dearly missed by all.
