Irene Bixby was a very social lady. She loved going to the senior center and socializing with all her friends. She enjoyed going to Jill Richards's home to play cards with her. They have been friends for seventy years. She loved going to play bingo with her friends. As well as knitting scarfs and mittens and making blankets for all of the family. If you needed a pair of mittens, she would make it just to be friendly. She loved her newspaper and her dog bingo. Her passion for life was her family. She loved spending time with them all. Whether it was a visit or a luncheon or just an unexpected reunion of family. She loved the flowers that bloomed, especially her azaleas. The joke in the house is a ball of yarn, a tv remote, and a newspaper and you wouldn't hear a peep out of her. She never ever complained of anything, no matter what came up, she took it with a grain of salt and she was and always will be a fantastic woman, mother, grandmother, and friend. We like to thank Dr. Neilson and his nurses that care for mom as well as hospice care nurses. As well as a special thanks to my mom's friends Betty Anne Emerson her friend and bingo Partner as well as her friend Sara Edward's who was her Walmart and bingo friend. A special thank you to Bobbie Jo Fysh for all her help taking care of Gram.
