Irene Carson, beloved wife of the late Elliott Carson and daughter of Katie and Jacob Kardash, peacefully passed away on July 19, 2023, at the age of 95. She was born as the fifth of seven children on a farm in Oscar Lake, Saskatchewan. Irene and Elliott met and got married at a church in Edmonton, Alberta. They proudly shared their lives as a military family, residing in Canada and France before eventually settling in Belleville, Ontario. Throughout her life, Irene managed Coles Book Store in Belleville and was a dedicated and long-term member of the #418 Wing Club.

Irene is survived by her three children: Donald (Mary) Carson of Edmonton, Alberta, Lorne (Elizabeth) Carson of Calgary, Alberta, and Sonia (Bill) King of Belleville, Ontario. She was a loving grandmother to Benjamin and James Carson, Zachary and Seth Carson, Christine (Anton) Botha, David and Daniel King, and cherished great-grandmother to Ada Carson and Alice Botha. Irene is also survived by her two sisters, Evelyn Kardash of North Vancouver and Rose Ann McDonald of Belleville.

A private ceremony will be held to honor Irene’s life, after which she will be laid to rest beside her late husband Elliott in Good Hope Cemetery, Good Hope, Alberta. Irene had a deep compassion for those in need, and donations to Gleaners Food Bank or The Arthritis Society would be greatly appreciated.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Rushnell Funeral Home in Belleville. For online condolences, please visit their website at http://www.rushnell.com.
