It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our mother and sister Irene Grant.  She passed peacefully on November 26, 2021 surrounded by family.

Irene attended Westville schools.  She worked at Bob Ross’, Zellers, Metropolitan, and Grants Glass.  She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for years holding many positions.  She loved to quilt and made beautiful ones for family and friends and also donated them to the church and people in need.  She also kept herself busy crocheting and knitting.  

We would like to thank all the members of her church for all their love and kindness and the nurses and doctors at the Aberdeen Hospital for their excellent care while she was there.
