Irene McAdam


Irene McAdam

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Irene McAdam, announces her passing which occurred on Monday, February 4, 2019 at the St. John St. Stephen Home.  Born on September 9, 1930 in Halifax, NS, she was a daughter of the late Harry Alexander Rexton McCoubrey and Carrie Sabina McCoubrey (Lambert).

Irene had a wonderful time in her career at the Saint John Regional Hospital, delivering smiles and hard work to the staff and patients as she carried out the duties of the day. Mom was passionate about hockey and would often watch the early game on the east coast, the late game on the west coast, grab a few hours sleep and head into work happy on the outcomes or beside herself if her heros were maligned. In all cases, her beloved dogs would be at her side. She will always be known as one who lent a hand to those in need without reservation.

Irene will be dearly remembered by her children: Faye McAdam, Dawn Goff and Garth McAdam, grandchildren, Lisa, Justin, Katlyn, Thomas, Zachary, Tisha, Troy, Shawn, Jessica and Carly. Mom joins her son Jeffrey in heaven.

Besides her parents, Irene was predeceased by her brothers Rex, Allison, Harry and Richard and sisters Ruth, Marjorie and Audrey.
