It is with deep sadness the family announces the passing of our mother, Irene Rich on September 29, 2021.
She was predeceased by her husband, Lamar Rich, in July 1988.
Surviving are her three children; Shirley Sarsons (Ronald) Okanagan Falls, Dixie Topham (Paul) Puerta Vallarta, Mexico, and Randall Rich (Elaine) West Kelowna, BC. Also three grandsons, three great grandchildren and four great, great grandchildren.
Irene was born in Kolcse, Hungary and emigrated to Calgary, AB at the age of five. She married and raised her family there until 1967 when the family moved to Kelowna, BC. In 1998 she built a new home in Okanagan Falls, where she remained until her passing.
Mom was a very independent, industrious woman and a proud member of Royal Canadian Legion BR 26. She was a flag bearer and enjoyed the trips to all surrounding area branches.
She loved spending time in her garden and her home. Browsing garage sales, bingo at the senior’s centre and scrabble, where she could still beat us all, until about a year ago.
You will be missed mom, and loved by all your family.
