LODGE, Irene: February 13, 1925 – September 29, 2013 It is with heartfelt sorrow and great love that we say goodbye to Irene Lodge (nee Brown), mother, grandmother and great grandmother in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on September 29, 2013. Irene was predeceased by her husband Robert; parents Roxanna and Henry Brown; her siblings James, Roxanna and Sheila; her grandson Chad; and brothers-law, Ken, Homer and Phil. Irene is remembered with a special place in the hearts of her children Leslie and Gary Christianson, Jeffrey Lodge and Paula Hanson, and William Lodge; her grandchildren Clint Christianson (Brittanee Ridgway), Stuart Lodge (Emma Nelson), Emma Lodge (Pate Neuman); her great grandchildren Courtlyn and Landon; her sisters Betty Taman (Bob) and Shirley Parton; numerous nieces and nephews and great friends she had made throughout her life. Irene grew up in Saskatoon among a large extended family. After completing her schooling she attended Saskatoon Business College, then worked for Veterans Affairs. She wed Robert in 1949 and started a life of travel and adventure. Irene had the fortune to live in the United States, Wales, Pakistan, and Zambia between stints in Swift Current, Regina, and Victoria, finally returning once again to Saskatoon. Irene travelled the world leaving her mark on the many friends and acquaintances she befriended along the way. Irene was committed to improving the living conditions of women and children worldwide through her involvement with UNICEF, the YWCA and the University of Regina's Senior Education Centre. Irene taught her family to laugh, love, and care for others. The family would like to thank the home care nurses and aides of SHR, the staff at Preston Park and Grace for mother’s care over the past year. Thank you to the staff at St. Paul's Hospital for making her final days peaceful. A celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2013 at the Delta Bessborough Hotel, Salon Batoche, 601 Spadina Crescent East, Saskatoon beginning at 1:00 pm. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to UNICEF or a charity of your choice.
This life say fars I understand
Is all enchanted fairyland
Where happiness is the magic wand
That wielded right,
Makes hours like minutes
Dance hand in hand
By full light
(Robert Burns)
"Good Night Irene, we will see you in our dreams."
