Irene Madeline Hollos - Dupuis

Irene Madeline Hollos (Dupuis) of Sault Ste. Marie/Sooke BC passed away gracefully at home on Tuesday November 13, 2012 after a 27 year battle with Cancer. She was surrounded by her loving family as she left to be with our Lord.

Irene was best known for her generiousity and compassion for others. She enjoyed cooking and baking and was well known for her perogies, pies, butter tarts and chocolate chip cookies.

Irene also enjoyed gardening and received many beautification recognitions for her love of flowers (especially tulips). She always had a classy finishing touch on projects and care packages sent to family, friends and less fortunate. Irene took that extra time to make sure people felt loved.

Irene is survived by her husband of 53 years Mihaly Hollos; her three sons Michael (Carole) of Timmins, Ont; Frank (Marlene) of Red Lake, Ont; Shawn (Denise) of Timmins, Ont and daughter Michelle (Pat) Wass of Sooke, BC. Irene had many grandchildren and greatchildren who she never seemed to forget their birthday!

Irene came from a large family herself and is survived by her sisters Monique (Jerald) Shook, Yvette (Ron) Lapointe and Jack (Charlotte) Dupuis and many many nieces and nephews. She loved us all very much and treasured her family.

We will miss you more than words can say mom but we know that you are with the angels looking over us and free from anymore pain and suffering. God wanted you back and we were so blessed to have you for 68 years.

You are beautiful mom , from the inside out and will always shine bright in our hearts.
