Obituary of Irene Friesen
Since Dad passed away on June 21, 2008, Mom has lived at Pleasant Manor in Virgil and then at Tabor Manor in St. Catharines. She had many dear friends, especially the women with whom she quilted at church. Over the years they created many exquisite quilts, and proceeds from those quilts supported Mennonite Central Committee and Albert Schweitzer Leprosy Hospital. We believe that now she is reunited with beloved members of her family who crossed over into heaven before her.
Her funeral service will be on Thursday, February 10 at 10:30am at St. Catharines United Mennonite Church at 335 Linwell Road in St. Catharines. An hour of visitation at the church will precede the service. All COVID Provincial Protocols will be in place. Burial at Niagara Lakeshore Cemetery will immediately follow. If you wish to make a donation in her memory, the family would especially appreciate donations to Mennonite Central Committee
