Aunt Irene was one of the nicest and most genuine people we ever had the privilege to meet. She truly cared about the ones around her, and we will never forget her. May the Lord graciously accept you into His kingdom. Rest in peace Aunt Irene.
Love,
The Salmon family

When I think of your mom I smile, she was a truly wonderful Mother and always made me feel welcome. She was the best baker in Scranton. Sorry for your loss.
