Lyle, Helga, & Hannah Hoban left a message on February 10, 2022:
When I was pregnant with my daughter, an angel came to us by the way of Irene Ornelas. Irene cared and spoiled my daughter, Hannah, as she was her own grandbaby. Every day I would pick up Hannah from Irene’s after a long day at work to find a smiling happy baby with a big bow in her hair and smelling like baby lotion. Irene gave so much of her time and love to my daughter and to our entire family. When Hannah’s real grandmother was battling leukemia, Irene and Steve would visit her often to comfort her. Words cannot express our gratitude towards Irene, and we’re devastated to hear of her passing. Irene, you meant the world to us! I am certain you and Staci are having a big cup of coffee right now just chatting it up. Love you! Lyle, Helga & Hannah
