Irene Tyssen

September 26, 1955 - February 17, 2024


It is with heavy hearts and great sorrow that we announce the passing of Irene Tyssen, on February 17th, 2024 at Kelowna General Hospital due to complications following surgery.

Irene was born September 26, 1955, to Bill & Florence Chahley in Grand Forks, BC. She resided in Grand Forks for most of her life before moving to the Rock Creek area in 2017 to be closer to her son’s family.

She was preceded by both her parents, her sister, Pauline, and her son, Carey Tyssen.

She will be missed and fondly remembered by her son, Cameron Tyssen, his wife, Raylene, and their children; Roman, Jude, and Summer. Her daughter, Tabitha Boruck, her husband, Allan, and their children; Jordyn, Gabe, and Junessa. Carey’s daughter, Coralee Tyssen was able to bless Irene with her first great-grandson, Jacob.

She also leaves behind her siblings; Georgina Saviskoff of Nelson, BC, Carol (Peter) Berisoff of Penticton, BC, John (Deborah) Chahley of Calgary, AB, and Lee (Don) Pedrini of High River, AB.

Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will take place at a later date.
