Irene enjoyed traveling, reading, working in her garden, painting landscapes, and sewing and quilting. Both she and Raul were members of First Baptist Church for over 50 years where she was active on various committees and taught Sunday School to preschoolers. \r\n\r\nA celebration of life service will be held on Friday, October 16, at 2:00 p.m. at Grimes Funeral Chapels. \r\n\r\nIn lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hill Country Youth Ranch or the charity of your choice. \r\n
