Irene Mary Bascombe died peacefully at age 94 on July 30, 2022 in Ottawa. Irene leaves her loving husband Donald with many warm memories of their sixty-eight years together. Irene was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and also leaves her five children Dianne (Bruce), Laura (Tom), Craig (Lori), Neil, and Doug (Lorraine); nine grandchildren Adrienne, Robyn, Nicole (Jon), Tristan (Lisa), Andrew, Matthew, Charlotte, Cameron, Gregory and Leah (deceased); and five great grandchildren April, Wyatt, Kyle, Olivia and Marianne, who will all miss her. Irene took great joy in her visits from the many children in the family over the years. Irene and Don had a long and happy life together and particularly cherished their many springtimes in Antibes after retirement. There will be a private family service at Beechwood Cemetery.
Craig and Family, Megan and I send our deepest condolences on the lost of your mother and grandmother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you celebrate Mrs. Bascombe's life.
