In loving memory of Irene Willgos, 77 years. Sunday, November 7th, 2021 at Saint Patrick’s Home, Ottawa. Loving mother of Betsy (Willgos) Mitchell, David Willgos and Gail Kursell. Daughter of Fanni and George Kyllonen (both predeceased), sister of Allan Kyllonen (predeceased) and Elsie (Kyllonen) McDorman. Loving grandmother to Savannah, Owen, Brooke, Emma and Alex.
Before retiring Irene was a guidance counselor and coach at LaSalle Secondary School. Irene was grateful for her colleagues and close friends, the laughs and friendship they shared. She was a compassionate mentor, caring deeply about her students, always striving to help them reach their full potential. Irene enjoyed playing bridge, watching old movies and reading, but her deepest love was for her grandchildren. Called Granny and Grandi, she cheered for, baked, played and crafted with her grandkids and it meant the world to her. Her laughter, hugs and compassion will be greatly missed. Love you mom.
At her request, no services will be held.
