Cone, Irene S.

Ontario:  Passed away on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at the age of 85.  Irene was born on June 9, 1932 to the late Elmer and Lucille "Sprague" Surline.  She was predeceased by her husband Richard H.

Irene was a person who enjoyed working and always had a need to stay "busy".  She had a strong work ethic and in her younger years was employed by the Eastman Kodak Company and worked on the assembly line.  She enjoyed the challenge of meeting her production quota. She primarily spent the years of her children's youth as a homemaker but would pick up small jobs; sometimes working in the DeLass Greenhouses, or spending time picking strawberries, and cherries.  Irene was also a sewer and did a number of sewing projects for the Masons and also knitted. She and Dick enjoyed traveling in their motor home.  She will be missed by those who knew, and loved her, but remembered fondly.
