IRENE SERRPosted: October 28th, 2013
June 18, 1921 ~ October 24, 2013
Mrs. Irene Serr, beloved wife of the late Carl Serr, passed away on Thursday October 24, 2013, at the age of 92 years. Irene leaves to cherish her memory two sons, Larry Serr and Ken (Donna) Serr; grandchildren, Tamara (Jeff) Noon, and Mitchell Serr. Great-Grandma will be lovingly missed by Kai, Halle and Annie Noon; Micah, Levi, and Jirah Ferguson. She was predeceased by her granddaughter, Melanie (Serr) Ferguson; sister, Margaret Duncan and her parents, Fred and Charlotte Frasch. Irene was born June 18, 1921 in Lodi, California, and moved back to Canada with her family when she was a young girl. Mom and Dad celebrated 53 years of marriage before Carls passing in 2000. They were great partners, and worked side by side as they built and renovated houses, raised their family, and enjoyed their grandchildren. Mom was a great cook and enjoyed preparing meals for every family member on birthdays, anniversaries and calendar holidays. Irene was a strong Christian woman and her faith was an important part of her life. She was a faithful member of Grace Lutheran Church from the 1950s until the church closed in 2010. She served in many different positions over the years and became a Life Member of the Good Samaritan Society after volunteering in that organization for many years. Although we are saddened by the loss of our dear Mom, we know that she touched many people over her 92 years and we know that she is having a wonderful reunion in Heaven with her granddaughter, Melanie and her husband, Carl.
