Mrs. Irene V House (née Phillips) died unexpectedly on November 16 at the age of 90.
Irene was born on January 21, 1930 in Detroit, MI to Roy and Victoria Philips (née Hilbery). She graduated from Mackenzie High School in 1948 and she married Phil in 1950. Over the next few years, the couple welcomed their three children into their home in Redford. She cherished all of the family get-togethers with her nieces and nephews at the holidays and all of the House family reunions. Her children remember her as a wonderful and patient mother who loved her family deeply.
Irene was a witty and fun loving individual who enjoyed traveling and spending winters in Florida with Phil. They would get together often with Phil’s GM retiree group for cards, golf and dining out. Irene stayed close to her high school friends and managed until recently to join the annual Mackenzie reunion.
Irene is survived by her three children, Diane House (Terence Pelc), Philip House (Barbara) and James House; and her brother, James Phillips. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Dr. Evan Pelc (Megan), Gwen Goodell (Wade), Dr. Alec Pelc, Katelynn Pedrie (John), Courtney House and Taylor House; and her great-grandchildren, Verity, Sydney and Isaac. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 51 years, Philip C. House.
