Irene was the mother of Phillip Edilla, his wife Joann, of Florida, Mary-Louise Hopkins, her husband Steven, of Cranston, RI, and David Edilla of Florida. Grandmother of Joshua Edilla (Lauren), Nicole Hopkins (Eric), and Jason Hopkins. Great grandmother of Kelsey and Ingrid Hopkins, Hunter Mae, Piper, and Rory Edilla.
