Irene Mary Westbury

August 6th, 1949 - August 12th 2016

We honor Irene Westbury's memory through her children and her many friends around the world. Irene lived her life for others; she dedicated her life to others.  She taught her children to be strong, independent and kind people.  She was a mother who loved unconditionally. She went on to teach empowerment to victims of abuse and those who were impoverished.  For all the hard work she did helping those who could not help themselves, she will be missed by many all over the world and many will be able to carry on her memory through their successes. Irene is survived by her children, Craig, Alexandria and Richard and her grandchildren, Makayla, Dakari and Britton.  


I will always remember your loving heart

And how you helped me whenever I needed it

You were there when no one else was

I don't know what I would do if you left me

But if it must be like that

I will always remember you

You will always be in my heart and in my mind

I will miss you more than anything in the world

But I know you are up in Heaven watching over me

And that is how I will get through the rest of my days ahead

It is your love that will keep me going

I know you can't read this but if you could

I love you and will miss you with the entire world

You will remain in my heart forever more

And when I get sad I'll just think about all the fun we had

You taught me to never stop loving and that's just what I'll do

For no matter what happens I will always love you

I hope that when you are in Heaven you will remember me too

You said you will always love me and I hope that still stays true

Even though you aren't here on Earth I will still love you

I will miss you and I hope in Heaven you will be watching over me

And I know when you are up in Heaven you will keep me safe

You have seen me change from a little girl to the young woman I am

And I thank you for helping me get there

It is just so unfortunate that I am getting married when you are gone,

We have changed the wedding dates do you know that Irene?

With your love and support you helped me believe

That I can do whatever I want to

Because of that I thank you

I love you for now and always

I hope you remember that even when you are gone

So for the last time...I love you and good-bye.

I am one of the person that will always remember Irene.
She was like my granny here in Malawi as she took over as a Mother to my Mum when her mum had died. She was an Angel, a scent from heaven. I am always thinking about you and praying for you. Irene will always be missed.



loosing a mother is a pain that cannot be described in words. It is impossible to move from the memory of losing the woman who sacrificed happiness in her life so that you could be a better one. Irene whereever you are your memories during the time we spend together in Lesotho are my life's solace. You have ben there for me when no one else could be and you made me something from no one.. Your death has caged me in pain, agony, and misery, but i dont mind suffering..atleast it has set you free. I will always love, miss and pray for you. LORD AS YOU SAID IN MATTHEW 11:28 " Come to me all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" YOU HAVE CALLED UPON IRENE AND YOUR TIMING IS ALWAYS PERFECT SET IRENE FREE AND LET HER SOUL REST IN ETERNAL LIFE WITH JESUS....AMEN.

Lots and lots of love
