Irene Fogaroli lived with us before recently passing at the amazing age of 104. She was the sweetest lady you could possibly meet. Her favorite words here were probably “grazie”, “beautiful”, and “7 Up”. An immigrant from Italy in the early 1940s, her son, Gulio shared these photos with us. He also shared that Irene loved being outside working on anything to do with gardens and plants. That included helping her grandson, Nino, with the firewood chores. It’s a nice note that Nino was actively involved in the construction of Trillium House. It was truly an honor taking care of a Irene and we miss her.
