In 1958, she married Bill Koziol (deceased 1995) and they had six children; Bob (Patricia) of Whitby, ON, Mike, Peter, Maryann, Steve, and Shirley (Robert Bechtel). She leaves eight loving grandchildren; Kevin (Fiona), Adrienne, Sean, Rachelle Biever, Ryan, Andrew and Erin Koziol, and Alyssa Koziol.
After the death of her first husband, she married Bill Moxley in 1997. Bill passed away in 2000. Irene is survived by Bill Moxley’s four children; Todd (Karen), Tim, Tammie (Mark), Trent (Vera); and eight grandchildren. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
Irene was active in fundraising and local politics and was a member of the Board of Governors of Grant McEwen University.
