IRENE M. BURKE
Irene loved her daughter Eileen, who is an active volunteer with Metairie Humane, and her fur babies Molly and Red (adopted from Metairie Humane in 2011) very much. She was a strong supporter of Metairie Humane since its formation. Irene passed away on January 31, 2020 at the age of 94, after a short illness. Before her passing, she requested that in lieu of flowers she wanted donations to be made to Metairie Humane in her memory. Due to her thoughtfulness, Metairie Humane received over $500 to continue its mission to save dogs from kill shelters, and help them to find their life time love affairs with their new families. We are sure that all the fur babies that she had loved so much before they crossed the Rainbow Bridge (Butch, Colleen, Susy, Lucky, Claire, Sandy, and Jeff) were all waiting to greet her in Heaven.
Metairie Humane Shelter's mascot crossed
the Rainbow Bridge on May 28th 2018.
Jeff is joining Sandy his favorite girlfriend.
He is greatly missed by his human Mamas,
Eileen and Irene. His four legged sisters,
Red and Molly miss him too.
He was such a great participant at all of
the Metairie Humane's fundraisers. Won
several awards in the costume contests.
We want to thank you for all of your prayers
and kind words.
The doctors tried very hard and Jeff tried even
harder to save his life. We are saddened by his
passing. Jeff will forever be the Metairie Humane Shelter's Mascot.
Notice the doglike cloud at the top of
the rainbow. This was taken approximately
at the time of Jeff's passing.
