In loving memory of Mrs Irene Young who sadly passed away at the Pilgrims Way Care Home, Maidstone on 28th February 2019 aged 91 years.

Irene Earing was born on 5th August 1927 in Rochford, Essex. She was the eldest of 6, - 3 brothers and 2 sisters, William (Jimmy), Arthur (Arch), Brian, Shirley and Patricia (Pat). She would often have to act as the parent and look after her siblings as both her parents, Amy & William were often out working.

She married her beloved Albert in 1947 and shortly after two sons, Keith and Barry were born. In 1957 they finally moved out into their own new build house in Pine Close, Swanley, and Irene continued to live in her house pretty much upto the end of her life. Their third son Martin came along in 1960 & the family was completed by Winston the Boxer. Tragedy struck in 1982 when Albert was killed in a road traffic accident. The devastation was to remain with Irene for the rest of her life.

Irene finally stopped work in 1992 at 65 for a well-earned retirement. But in 2012 she was diagnosed with terminal lung & kidney cancer and only given months to live. She decided she didn’t want treatment & 6 years on a locum GP suggested the family might want to get a second opinion – such was the strength of Irene!

She also developed dementia in her latter years but she never complained, she was always strong whatever life threw at her. As her condition slowly deteriorated, she was admitted into hospital in December 2018 and then moved into a Nursing Home the day after Boxing Day. She was comfortable and not in pain at the end but would recognise everyone who visited her.

She was deeply loved by all her family – the 3 boys and their wives Shirley, Christine and Carole, 4 grandchildren, Dean, Darron, Lisa & Neil, and 7 great grandchildren, Brandon, Georgia, Joshua, Taryn, Erin, Marcus and Celia.
Irene will be deeply missed but never forgotten.

Rest in peace Irene.
With all our love

Some of the prize winners from the F1 competition I run have asked for their winnings to be donated to charity. They subsequently agreed that I could donate this money in memory of my Mum - something I am very grateful to Ben Warcup, Phil Taylor, David Molyneux, Tariq Rouf, Jake Vials, Chloe Lehmann, Dave Dalziel,
Malcolm & Janice Bone for.

I am a very lucky man to have Irene and Albert Young as my mum and dad. They taught me everything in life and were always there for me. Sadly my dad was taken when he was far too young. My mum carried on life with an extremely heavy heart but she was still there with love and support for family, friends or anyone who needed her. She was loved my all that knew her and will be sadly missed. Love you mum xxx
