Beyond her selfless spirit, Irene had a love of spending time outdoors. Her nieces and nephews were among the people Irene helped teach her appreciation of nature through fishing and camping adventures. She was also well known for her appreciation of arts and crafts. Most famously of her crafts was her Christmas village. Her ever-growing village featured the Mutter family home in Waterford, her longtime workplace of NEL, and other local waypoints. Friends, family, and coworkers all came to appreciate her handcrafted work - which became a yearly Christmas destination. In her younger years, Irene was known as the talented catcher on NEL's softball team and as an avid bowler. Later in life, she spent much of her time with her beloved Chiweenie, Quinn. Her friends and family will most miss Irene for her kindness, selfishness, and appreciation for the simple things in life.
