Dean Irvine-Dare (1938 - 2013)
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother and nana. She fought her battle with cancer with grace, dignity and great courage. She entered into Eternal life on March 3, 2013, at home with her daughter, Karen and son-in-law, Phil, providing her a peaceful, loving departure.
She was born January 28, 1938, in Wiseman, Ark., to Everette and Ruby Merrell. She is survived by her children, Nancy, Cheryl, Michael, Lori, Christy, Donald, Ronald and Karen; her grandchildren, Josh, Mikayla, Carly, Michael, Desiree, Chelsea, Francisco, Angela, Brianna, Kristen, Kaylie and Corey. Her grandson, Robert, and granddaughter, Krista preceded her in death. Also survived by sisters, Juanice, Betty and Linda. Preceded in death by sister, Oleta; brothers, Millard and Willard. She is also survived by life-long friend Darlene and grand-dog, Benji. Services are pending.
Karen wishes to thank Dr. Evan Slater from VCMC Oncology, who allowed us to have many more years with mom. I would also like to thank Dr. Linda England. Our sincerest gratitude to Buena Vista Hospice, especially Tina, Shelia, Shady and Luz; and to her caregiver, Enedina for providing her loving care. I would also like to thank Leti, Blanca, Maria, Laura and Gloria for being my rock, also the staff at VCMC 3 North & 3 West for the years of wonderful care.
If we have forgotten anyone, please understand and know that you made a difference in our lives.
