Irene was the wife of the late Lawrence V. (Larry) Talcott. Celebrating 35 years of marriage and having a true love story not many can match.  They are now reunited in Heaven and able to spend their “happily ever after” together.

Irene was a loving mother and kindhearted friend to all.  Irene’s presence was overwhelming, those that knew her loved her because she could always make you smile and made sure everyone was included and taken care of.  She was truly selfless and giving.  Many called her “Ma” because she just had that nurturing and caring demeanor about her. 

Irene loved the outdoors and hunting with her family.  She loved to be at her barn with her cows.  She also enjoyed gardening, cooking and canning.  She loved to travel and traveled frequently with friends and family.  Her and her daughter had many adventures together and were basically inseparable.
