Irene Johnson

Irene passed away on September 27, 2013 after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born on Jan 27, 1953 in Rossland, B.C. She was predeceased by her father, Emil Nord, her mother Filomino Nord and nephew, Dale Nord. She will be forever missed by her knight in shining armour, Larry Johnson, her daughter, Corrinna Johnson and her grandchildren, Christopher and Jenica, her most precious treasures of all. She will be sadly missed by her brother Phil (Brenda) Nord, her nieces and nephews, Michelle, Lori, Andrew and Melissa, great niece, Brieanna as well as extended family and friends.

She stood proud and brave through her long battle and humbled anyone who knew her with her strength, fortitude and positive spirit.
