In the afternoon of Friday, April 6, 2018, Irene passed away at her home north of Ringling. Irene was 77 years old, being born on October 12, 1940 to the late Mr. William Thomas Choate and Mrs. Beaulah Mae (Loyd) Choate at Orr, OK.

She also enjoyed cooking for her family and working around and decorating the inside of her house. Her nightly calls with Shirley Choate, Betty Ann Pemberton, and Jean Davis brought many nights of girlish laughter to Irene.
