Tribute - Irene Farr

Auxiliary-Captain Irene Farr was promoted to glory from her home at Riverview Gardens (Qld) on Monday 19 April 2021. She was 92 years old.

Irene worked for years at Lyndon House (Canowindra Girls Home, NSW) before she began her official ministry with The Salvation Army as an envoy serving at Moyne Aged Care Centre (NSW) from November 1978. In 1980, Irene applied and was accepted to commence Late Vocation Training and Service. In her application, it was said that Irene was a hard worker, as well as being loyal, stable and pleasant.

In August 1982, Irene relocated to assist at La Perouse (NSW), and then in 1985 to assist at Glen Haven, before finishing her ministry at Boothville Hospital (Qld). Irene officially retired on 1 March 1989 after 10 years and three months of active service.

In retirement, Irene enjoyed spending time with family and spent her latter years caring for her sisters, Vera and Mary, before their passing. Irene was known as a brilliant cook, and gentle soul, who cared for others with a gentle influence.

Our love, sympathy and prayers are with family and friends honouring Irene’s life. May God bring comfort to those who mourn her passing, confident in the knowledge that Irene is now with her Lord and Master.

“Great is thy Faithfulness! Morning by morning new mercies I see; All I have needed thy hand has provided; Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.”Thomas Obadiah Chisholm (1866-1960)

The funeral service for Aux-Capt Irene Farr was held on Monday 3 May 2021, at the Riverview Chapel, conducted by Major Denice Strong.
