D. Irene Hart (nee Plowe)

September 8, 1940 – June 14, 2019
It is with deepest sadness we regret to announce the passing of D. Irene Hart (Plowe) on Friday, June 14, 2019 at Hospice House in Vernon, BC. Irene was a remarkable mother to her three children Brian (Sharon), Darryl (Christina) and Diana. Her granddaughters, Ashlynn, Erin and Cassidy were her world, she made them the beautiful women they are today. She also leaves behind her brother Dal (Alice) Plowe, cousin Dianne (Geordie) McMorran, and many nieces, nephews, cousins and family members.
Irene loved children and taught hundreds of them over the years at her preschools, Tiny Tots in Summerland and Busy Beavers in Vernon. She was also very involved in the United Church of Canada where she taught Sunday school, children’s choirs, and was involved locally, regionally and nationally over the years with the church.
When Irene was 50 she took a job teaching English in Japan, she loved it so much she stayed for three years, she loved the people, their culture and they loved her just as much.
In the last few years she met the love of her life, Bill Roth, he made her happier than anyone had ever seen her, thank you Bill for making her so happy.
At her request there will be a Celebration of Life at Trinity United Church on July 13, 2019 @ 1 pm, and also a Celebration at the Milner Chapel on Saturday, August 17th @ 1 pm.
Donations can be made to the North Okanagan Hospice Society in her name.
