Irene began working in Medicine Hat, first at Sunnyside Nursing Home and later at the Parklane Hotel. In 1974, Edwin and Irene took over operation of the Black and White Coffee Shop which became their real passion for thirteen years. After leaving the coffee shop they operated Al’s Coin Laundry in Crestwood until their retirement. Edwin and Irene eventually moved into the Haven and enjoyed playing cards and socializing with all the residents. Irene then spent the past three years at Riverview Care Center where she received excellent care. She will always be remembered as an outstanding cook whose kitchen was always open.
