Irene Kathleen Sheehan


With heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of our mum, Irene Sheehan, with family by her side on October 13, 2020, at the Salvation Army Grace Manor. She was 78 years old.

Irene is the much-loved mother of Janet Sheehan (Brad Tavner) of Ottawa, and Thomas Sheehan (Marcy) of Calgary.  She will forever remain the proud and loving Grandma of Evan and Anna. 

She is predeceased by her husband, Dunnigan Sheehan (2015), their infant daughter, Christine, her parents, Evelyn and Thomas Talbott, her sisters, Hope and Sheila and her brothers, Victor (Evelyn) and Jimmy (Sue) Talbott. She is survived by her sister Linda MacDonnell, her sister-in-law Maureen Orser, brother-in-law Pat (Helen) Sheehan as well as her many nieces and nephews.

Irene loved her family and the many friends she made throughout her lifetime.  She was always one to be positive, cheerful and ready to decorate or dress up for any occasion.  She loved painting, colouring, flower arranging and crafts, as well her daily Jumble Word puzzle.

Irene was born at the Grace Hospital and returned to the Grace Manor in her senior years…a full circle. Special thanks to all the staff on Wellington West at the Grace Manor for your kindness, love and care.

A small private ceremony will take place during this unprecedented time. The Canadian Cancer Society and The Salvation Army are charities which Mum held dear if you wish to make a donation in lieu of flowers
