Irene Bailey (Overton)

1959 - September 29th, 2015

Since our last reunion we have lost several classmates.  All of whom were special to us in many different ways.  However, there was no one more inspiring than our friend, Irene.  Her strength and determination were unmatched.  She lifted us up and made us smile while she struggled through her own pain.  She became a spokesperson for organ donations and was such a great mentor to new organ recipients through the Second Wind program. Irene was special, not because she was sick but because of the way in which she approched her sickness and made it a positive thing.. Many people now live because she taught others the importance of being a donor.  She loved her family and her God.  Our hearts were broken when she passed away, yet we knew her pain and suffering were gone.  A visual tribute to her life can be found here:   https://www.twifordfh.com/irene-overton/

From David Chappell on December 9th, 2012
Before public performances, we new it was going to be a good concert when Mrs Reel cried (usually out of fustration for her errant chorus...;-)  Indeed, we always came through .. we had no choice, she pulled us through by sheer  will.  I can not help to think that our chorus was special, that the music we made touched others.  I never thanked her for that opportunity.  I miss her and especially so at Christmas... my love of christmas music stems from those Christmas perfomances.  I still cry when I hear "Still"
