    My sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Irene and to her dear brother, Everett. Irene was always a pleasant person with a big smile on her face. The Gay Family lived next door to her Aunt Katie McLaughlin. We are cousins. I remember Irene staying with Katie when she went to Fisher College. I have many fond memories as a child visiting the Mawn’s house.
