Irene Streberg

December 19, 1942 - April 25, 2013


Irene Streberg was born on December 19, 1942 at Stettler, Alberta and passed away at Oliver Palliative Care on April 25, 2013 at the age of 70 years.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 50 years, Dennis; her daughter Susan & her husband Brad; grandchildren:  Ryan (Terra), Carly & Megan; great grandchildren Easton & Sean; sisters  Doris (Fred) Henke, Evelyn (Norm) Smith, Muriel Holladay, Heather (Deral) Lang as well as numerous nieces, nephews, & friends.

She was predeceased by her daughter, Shauna Leah & her twin sister, Inez Cloutier.

Irene was raised on the family farm by Donalda, Alberta.

She had many interests and talents.  She excelled in photography, cross stitching, scrap booking, quilting & dancing.  But her real passions (besides Dennis & the grandkids) were golfing, travelling & camping.

Irene was a very strong-willed, optimistic & well organized person.  She was very meticulous in everything she did.  If it needed to be done, it had to be done right!

She will surely be missed by all those she loved & left behind.

A memorial service will be officiated by Rev. Darren Siegle at 2:00 P.M. Wednesday May 1, 2013 at Grace Lutheran Church in Osoyoos. A reception in the church lower hall will follow the service.

Donations in Irene’s name are gratefully accepted to a charity of one’s choice.

From: Raymond Kuntz
Relation: Dennis and Irene are my godparents

Aunt Irene prompted us to write something for the Streberg Christmas letter and put much effort in to having us all receive it. That work of love Irene created certainly helped my kids know more of our extended family. I am especially thankful for the copy of “Grannie’s Story” she copied and distributed – about another Irene, her mother-in-law and great matriarch. Irene, my aunt, was a loving matriarch also. She adored her grandkids and made regular contact with her nieces and nephews’ families too. Be it making personalized 8-tracks of Merle Haggart for a nephew or sharing great family scrapbooks, I have many fond memories of Irene.
I am not a golfer so I never had any special logo golf balls to contribute to her great collection and I only once had Dennis give advice on my swing but it was clear they were truly one, especially around a golf course.
She is a golfing partner, dance partner, life partner and soulmate who Uncle Dennis will sorely miss. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this sad time, Much love from Kingston (Ray, Helene, Zoe and Maxim)
