She enjoyed spending time with her family and Loved BSU football and Utah Jazz Basketball! She loved the outdoors and working in her yard and it showed by all of her beautiful purple flowers. One of her favorite past times lately was being on her lap top, playing “Words with Friends” with her little “Baxter Boy” by her side. If you ever wanted the blunt truth, she was the one to ask. She was a fire-cracker with a genuine heart. As she once told her Grand- daughter Kelsey, butterflies and Lady bugs are messages from heaven. She was a true believer in Guardian Angels, so we all know now that we will have a Guardian Angel of our own. And as she would’ve said… Goodbye Irene.
