Irene M. Horback nee Croteau
Born September 19, 1922 in Fall River, MA, was the eldest of twelve children to Herman and Yvonne Croteau. She lived most of her life in Southern California. Forever sunny and bright, she never met a stranger. She was considered ?Mom? to the retired stewardesses of Clipped Wings in both Los Angeles and O.C. Chapters since 1976. Predeceased by her husband of 47 years, Albert J. Horback.
In 1998, Irene made the transition from the San Fernando Valley to Lake Forest in a very short time. Living across the street from her daughter, Jean Horback Adams, she delighted in attending movies, conventions, events and anything with fun-loving people. Everyone who knew her marveled at how you she looked for being 83 years old. She was broadsided by a car on El Toro Road and died instantly. Tragic.
She leaves on son, Glen of Lone Tree, CO; six brothers and three sisters, on both coasts.
Irene blossomed whenever around her four grandchildren, Craig of Orange, CO, Kyle of Colorado, Kimberly and Kristina of Alameda. Her life changed many, and she will be forever remembered.
A Visitation will be held on Friday, July 28, 2006 ~ 7:00 P.M. at O’Connor Laguna Hills Mortuary, Laguna Hills, California.
