MASSCHELEIN, Irene (Hallaert) – Passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at Jessica’s House in Exeter on Thursday, August 30, 2018 at the age of 90 years. Beloved wife of the late Emile (2017) for 65 years. Loving mother of Theresa & Michael Hope, John & Gudrun Masschelein, Beatrice Masschelein († 2015) & Frank Fisher, Cecile & John Muller, Joris & Connie Masschelein, Ron & Laurie-Ann Masschelein. Predeceased by infant children Anne († 1953), Joseph († 1961) and Gerard († 1964). Grandmother of 24 Grandchildren and 20 Great Grandchildren. Sadly missed sister of Godlieve Delefortrie († Aime), John Hallaert, Therese & Pierre Bernard, † Julianna & † Pierre Demeulemeester, Monique & Jean-Louis Tardieu, Mary & Bob Lamond and Elizabeth & Byron Nilson.

Irene was very grateful for her family, deeply grounded in her faith and saw her parish as a “living church” which gave her so much fulfillment.

A quote from Irene “Life is full of rewards if you stop to see them. I did not do great things in my life, but I tried to do them with great love.”
