Obituary for Irene Brown
Irene Brown passed away peacefully at St. Boniface Hospital, surrounded by family, on August 4, 2017, at the age of 91.
She was predeceased by her husband William Brown, daughter Valerie Benson, sister Peggy Sinclair, and brother John Currie.
Left to cherish her memory are her son David (Hazel), daughter Sheila Carriere, son-in-law Keith Benson, sister Billie Milne, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as nieces and nephews.
Irene was born and raised in Glasgow, Scotland, where she met and married William Brown. As a war bride, she
travelled to Winnipeg where she and Bill lived, worked, and raised their family.
Irene had a no-nonsense approach to life, and even in her later years was ﬁercely independent and maintained a sharp wit. She loved to joke with friends, family, and all those who came in contact with her.
Thanks to the staﬀ at St. Boniface Hospital and special thanks to the staﬀ at Cathedrale Manor, Irene's home for the last six years.
In accordance with her wishes, cremation has taken place and a family graveside service has been held.
