Ettinger, Irene Margaret Alice (Perry) - age 87, formerly of Noel, passed away peacefully on May 29, 2023 at Dykeland Lodge, Windsor. Born in Halifax, Irene was the daughter of the late Loretta (Cleveland) and Herbert Perry. Beginning work at a young age, Irene had fond memories of working at Moir’s Chocolate Factory in Halifax before settling in Noel, where she continued working as a caregiver and personal care aid. Irene was known for her feisty personality, teapot collection and love for photos. She proudly displayed pictures of her family and memories from every event of her life, often sparking many conversations with visitors and care workers. Irene loved having a good laugh and valued her long chats on the phone and visits with her friends and family. She enjoyed attending Bingo, jamborees, and the evening socials at Sunnybrook Manor; word search puzzles, baked goods, knitting, and having her nails painted the brightest shade of pink. Irene is survived by her son, Bert (Colleen); grandchildren, Courtney, Ashley, and Brad (Miranda); sisters Bertha and Betty; brother Victor; and in-laws Doris, Linda and Wayne, along with several nieces and nephews. Irene is predeceased by her parents, husband Arthur, as well as siblings Art and Murial. The family would like to thank the Dykeland Lodge staff for their dedicated care and compassion during her time there. Cremation has taken place, as per Irene’s request, there will be no visitation. A private Family Service will be held on Friday, June 2nd, 2023, in Noel Cemetery.
