KOCH, Irene


KOCH - Irene quietly went to the heavenly home that God had prepared for her on July 14, 2010, after spending three years in the Ponoka Hospital suffering from Alzheimer's. Irene grew up in Calgary along with her parents Fred and Pearl Robillard and two brothers Art and Larry. In 1950 she married John Koch. They had three children, Sandra, Jean and Richard along with ten grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren. Irene was a faithful, loving, kind wife and mother. For 60 years Irene and John received the most joy when being with their family. Irene was always busy doing various kinds of needlework. The framed embroidery of animals that she made for John has remained priceless to him. She was faithful to her Saviour Jesus Christ - wearing out several Bibles and teaching Sunday School and Girls Clubs. Her loving, kind faithfulness will be missed by her husband John and family.
