Irene Bessie Smith
Irene Smith “Grandma Irene” Shared her love for trains and the railroad with her grandson Francis Urban Smith. He was proud of his grandmother’s volunteer work with the Welsh Highland Railway. Francis grew up knowing his grandmothers dedication to animal rescue and was very fond of her sheep dogs Meg and Polly. Francis loved his visits to grandma’s cottage at Tyddyn Ysguboriau. He remembers grandma’s hot chocolate and her beautiful garden with award winning flowers. Grandma Irene was a published writer with a great interest in history and conservation. In 2010, she dedicated a story to her grandson titled “Memories of Cycling”.
Francis is thankful he was able to let his grandmother know he was going to college with a major in Physics. His grandmother sent him many pictures and books about science and astronomy. She will be sadly missed; her memory and accomplishments live on in her grandson Francis.
Bless You Grandma Irene
