Irene Darr Obituary

Irene Darr passed to her glory on March 24, 2024 She was born January 16, 1938 to Isadore and Gladys (Swerlein) Frey in Kirby, OH. She was raised on a farm, the youngest of 7 children.

She met the love of her life, Harold (Gene) Darr, Labor Day Weekend 1956 at Forest Lake Dance Hall. They married on February 23, 1957 at St. Mary’s in Kirby.

Together she and Gene raised their 6 children. They also started their business, Darr’s Cleaning, in 1960.
