Margaret Irene Ethel (Kyle) Armstrong

December 11, 1927 ~ June 12, 2019 (age 91)


Mother of 3, Grandmother and Great Grandmother of 5, Irene passed away quietly

Wednesday June 12 at age 91, predeceasing her beloved husband Charles with

whom she celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary in May. Irene was a stay at

home Mom who was the heart of the family, leaving all with wonderful memories

and a deep sense of loss. Born of seventh generation Irish descent in Montreal

where she completed high school, she worked first as a telephone operator in North

Bay and later as a secretary in Montreal, following her father’s career moves. She

met Charles in Montreal and married in Toronto where her family was then located.

Daughter Margaret Anne was born in Montreal, sons Robert in Winnipeg and John in

London, Ontario as she also traced her husbands’ many postings across Canada. A

frequent summer visitor, she moved to Penticton early in 1982 to oversee the

building of their dream home, one of the first on Wiltse Flats, pending Charles’

planned retirement from corporate life and his wish to locate near the family home.

Together they joined the Penticton Golf & Country Club and Irene spent many happy

days on the course, as a volunteer in the hospital gift shop and in her garden. Those

she met will remember her as a serious, gracious, but fun-loving lady who respected

and valued her friends. Thanks are expressed to the caring staff at Haven Hill Care

Centre and to a kind and supportive Dr. Tatham, There will be no formal service and

no flowers and a simple family ceremony when her ashes are interred in the

Columbarium at the Lakeview Cemetery waiting to be re-joined by her life-time love

and companion.
