Irene Rosemary Scarr

Peacefully in hospital on 5th July 2024, Irene aged 73 years of Rishton. The devoted wife of the late Stephen, loving and loved mum of Luke and his wife Amy, cherished grandma of Anna and a dearly loved relative and friend to many.

Former office admin worker, Irene gave up work following the birth of her much adored son Luke to become full time house wife and mother, devoting all her time and love to her family. She was an avid shopper who couldn’t resist a bargain and she took the saying ‘shop till you drop’ to a whole new level, Irene had an endless supply of clothes, shoes and bags. She always took great pride in her appearance and loved to dress to impress with her hair and makeup perfectly applied. She was a social butterfly who loved to spend time with her friends, chatting away whilst enjoying a cocktail or two. Irene loved to help others, she always had a listening ear to lend and a shoulder to lean on and she gave the greatest of advice when needed. Becoming a grandma to little Anna was the icing on the cake for Irene, she truly doted on Anna, becoming like two peas in a pod, Thursday was grandma day and the pair would spend the whole day laughing and making treasured memories.

Irene was loved by all who knew her and she will be sadly missed but fondly remebered holding a special place within the hearts of all those who loved her.
