March 7, 1942 ~ April 15, 2023
It is with sadness we announce the passing of Irene Rerick on April 15, 2023 after an ongoing battle with pneumonia.
She will be missed by husband of 62 years, Clifford; daughter Debbie (Guy); son Glen (Rosanne); grandchildren Alexis (Jeremy), Matthew and Andrew; brothers Garry (Lynne), Jim (Trudy), Al (Dawn), Wayne (Carla), Bob, Bruce (Janice), brother-in-law Raymond McQuarrie and many other relatives, special friends Gerry, Irma, Peter, Diane, Billy, Ed, Iona, and many more friends.
Irene was predeceased by parents Eva and George Steiner; infant brother Gerald; infant sister Sharon; sisters Laura (Petcee) and Arlene; and in-laws George and Lena Rerick.
Grandma had a love for her grandchildren and in her later years being a grandma to a very special puppy. Irene loved being a snowbird with her husband Clifford in Arizona for many years spending time with friends. She enjoyed watching and following many forms of motorsport racing and followed the World of Outlaws Sprint Cars – touring across the US finding all the dirt tracks they could watch. Irene was also an active member of the community with being the coordinator of the craft show in town for many years and being a Sunday School teacher.
Irene will leave a lasting memory of the most delicious cake and candy business in the Beausejour and surrounding areas – Irene’s Cake and Candy. She made most of the wedding cakes for her family, and her last hurrah with cakes was granddaughter Alexis’ one birthday request for Grandma’s icing for her birthday. They made cupcakes with her famous icing on December 29, 2022.
We would like to thank all the homecare workers that helped throughout the years, all the doctors, nurses, ambulance workers, the handivan workers and Stars that have touched her life.
Donations in Irene’s name may be made to Winnipeg Humane Society, Stars or Zion Lutheran Church, Beausejour.
A memorial service and celebration of life will be held Friday, April 21, 2023 at 1:30 p.m. at the Sobering Funeral Chapel, 1035 Park Avenue East in Beausejour.
