What a Special Lady! Irene was truly a blessing to know! She was one of my mother’s best friends, and she grew up next to my daddy in Aydlett, NC.

Condolence from Becky Howard on April 22nd, 2022 11:17 am

Miss Irene was always such a special lady. She was kind, sweet, witty and beautiful! I will remember her fondly and when she was a “ grade mother” at school.
I know my mother enjoyed working with her on our class projects and parties. There is a great rejoicing going on in heaven!

Condolence from Sharon Saunders Tunnell on April 22nd, 2022 5:15 pm

Ms. Irene was such a sweet, kind southern lady, both inside and out. I have fond memories of her and Mr. Vernon in our neighborhood growing up near them. She particularly soothed my tears, skinned up knee and soul as I tripped running up that long driveway during my childhood one day. I’ll never forget the compassion she poured out to me. My deepest condolences to her entire family!

Condolence from Mitchell Bateman on April 23rd, 2022 6:03 am

Growing up in Aydlett, I lived about a half mile up the road from Miss Irene. Diddy was a year older than me but we often played together as kids. Their big old two story house was magical, with a garden, flowers, and a real barnyard full of animals. Miss Irene gave me a pheasant to raise that she had and it was one of my most special gifts. She always had a smile on her face and an open door for all the kids in the neighborhood. People like Miss Irene are what made childhood in Aydlett so special… May our God give her the peace and rest she earned.

Condolence from Mary Oakes on April 23rd, 2022 9:11 am

To all of Irene’s family,
Our prayers go out to each of you upon the passing of a great lady. Tom and I were members of the same Sunday School class as Irene for many years. She was a fun-loving, happy, loving and lovable person. She will be missed by many.
Tom and Mary Oakes

Condolence from Jackie Myers-Payne on April 23rd, 2022 9:57 am

I am so sorry for your loss! Ms Irene was the sweetest lady! I’ve known the Douglasses most of my life living on Church’s Island. I always tried to visit Ms Irene during the Christmas season and she always looked forward the cookies, other baked goods, and jams. A couple of years ago, it was nearly Christmas Eve before I could bring them and she was so full of glee when I came over, expressing the fact that she was gonna be disappointed that she wouldn’t get the cookies. She always thought of others and during my visits, she’d always ask about my mother and brothers. Heaven gained an Angel that could express kindness and joy with just her smile.

Again my family and I are so sorry for your loss!
The Myers-Payne Family
