E. Irene Perrin


E. Irene Perrin


September 26, 1928 - October 13, 2017


Born in Campbellton, NB Irene was the youngest child of Alice & John Anningson's 13 children, who lived to adulthood.  She graduated from Bathurst High School & was a long time resident of (Ketepec) Saint John. Prior to her marriage to Blair she worked at NBTel & MRAs.  Irene was a wonderful hostess & loved entertaining. Many festive dinners & pot luck meals were held in the Ketepec House & yard. She enjoyed camping & the family camp at Queens Lake.

Mourning her loss are daughters Brenda (Dale) & Nancy; grandchildren Heather, Kevin, Ryan & Robyn; great grandchildren Tristan, Lily & Jaxson; sisters Connie & Marjorie; sister-in-law Ruth & the McKinney family; & niece Rae & Anningson family.  Irene was predeceased by her beloved husband Blair in March 2013, by infant granddaughter Lana (Oct. 13, 1984), and by 10 siblings - Lester, Laura, Kay, Florence, Ann, Vivian, Harold, Howard (Jack), Grant, and Clifton.

Since January 2015, after a debilitating stroke, Irene was lovingly cared for by her extended family at Kennebec Manor.  Blair & Irene were devoted members of St. Anne’s Church for many years & more recently of Church of the Resurrection, Grand Bay.
