Over the last 8 years or so I had the pleasure of spending our Mondays together with you Mona and Irene and really getting to know how lovely Irene truly was; she was like one of of us! Fun and peppy always ready to go somewhere. We loved shopping and of course, let's not forget the fun we had at the casino!
May her memory be a blessing to all of us as she was one dynamic lady!

To Irene's family,
We are devastated by the loss of Irene. She had the soul and spirit of someone who would live forever. Ava and Sophia cried when they heard the news and said she was their shul Bubbe. I will miss her hugs, her warmth, and her lovely sense of humor. Whenever you asked her how she was she would always talk about how much you all loved her and what a great job you did taking care of her. The bond you shared with her was inspiring and enduring. We will miss her but we are so much richer for knowing and loving her. You are all in our thoughts. We love you.

We were devastated by news of Irene's passing. She and Frank were like an aunt and uncle to me (Judi). We're going to miss the smiles, hugs and I loves yous at shul and our meetings at Costco. She was everyone in the world's best friend. We were looking forward to having her see how Eitan is growing. The world has suffered a great loss of a great woman. We hope your precious memories help you during this difficult time.

Louie and I are so sorry for your loss. Talk about a life we’ll-lived - the evidence of that runs through all of these tributes. I know this will bring you all comfort in these sad days ahead. It’s interesting that even now she wouldn’t want you to share her age but it is clear that everyday she lived brought blessings to so many. I will always remember and appreciate how good your parents were to mine. She is back now with your dad and may they all Rest In Peace. Sending much love your way.

Irene "Share" Scherr. This should have been the spelling of Irene's last name. Irene shared her life with her family, friends, & all who knew her. I enjoyed kibbitzing with Irene, whenever I saw her at Shul. She would ask me what was doing in my life. I used to say to her- let's get married ! We would hug each other. I missed a golden opportunity to have an instant family! If you knew our ages, we were many years a part, however we could relate to each other as if the same ages...That is who Irene was...A caring, sweet mother, grandmother& great grandmother. May you cherish all the beautiful memories of Irene. May Hashem bless her good Soul. Baruch Hashem !!

It is with the greatest of sorrow that I send my condolences. Your beloved Irene always treated me like I was a member of your family. When this terrible news came, I could not help but take it very personally. I will always remember her warmth, caring thoughts of people, bright smile, and optimistic view of life. She was a true treasure and it was my great pleasure to have known her. The world will not be the same without this great Lady. One thing was certain: She loved her Family and everyone around her. May her cherished memory always comfort you.

Dear Mona, Herb, and the entire Arenberg/Scherr clan,
We were heartbroken to hear about dear, loving Irene this morning. We always felt loved by her. Even my mother o.b.m. adored her. They had a lot in common. They knew some of the same people, and they were both lucky enough to have daughters who considered their moms their best friends and sons-in-law who treated them with true love and devotion. Life will be tough for a long time, Mona. We know how painful it is for you to no longer have Irene here, but we hope you will be comforted by wonderful memories of all the years you were lucky enough to be together on earth. May you all be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem. Baruch Dayen Haemet. We send much love to all of you. Your mom will be missed by all of us.

Dear Mona, Herbie, Stevie, Linda, Jeffrey, Emily, Evan, Aviva, Aiden and the rest of the immediate family,
We are so very sorry for the loss of Irene. She was so precious to us. I first saw her when she visited the Schroeder's on Lynview Avenue and Mayloch and ShirleyZimmermanacrossthestreet. She was close to her family. She became good friends with my folks. They played cards, went on trips, etc. And my dad and Irene enjoyed Hollywood trivia. She was still great at it. She always asked me how everyone was and to tell them that she loved them. That was our dear Irene. She was so proud of Mona and Herbie and Stevie and Linda and the grandchildren; but what she was most proud of were her great grandchildren. They were her heart and soul. We were all so lucky to have known such a truly wonderful person; especially you Mona. May her beautiful memory be a blessing. R.I. P. Irene ❤

I pray that the memories you have of your live with our "Bubbie" bring you comfort in the days, weeks and months ahead. Whenever I hear the words "Ayshes Chayil", I think of Irene.

The entire congregation at MMAE is devastated by the news of the passing of Irene Scherr. To say that Irene was beloved at MMAE is an understatement of monumental proportions. She was not just beloved. She was our Bubbe. The obituary lists Jeffrey and Evan as Irene's grandchildren. But there are roughly 350 more grandchildren because Irene was the grandmother to all of us. She and Maishe Asher walked down the aisle at Neil and Chaya Leah Smuckler's wedding a year ago Memorial Day. She traveled to Lakewood, New Jersey to do that. Who gets that honor besides a Bubbe? It breaks all of our hearts to have to say good-bye as she joins with her beloved Frank, obm.

While we, as a congregation, mourn this loss, we know that Mona, Herbie, Steve, Linda, Jeffrey, Emily Evan, and Aviva and Aiden (who knew her as "Big Bubbe") will have a special hole in their hearts that will take a long time to heal because nothing was more important to Bubbe than family. This is a family that did everything together. Vacations? Bubbe went. Weekly ventures to the casinos? Bubbe went. Shul? Bubbe was there. So to the whole Scherr and Arenberg clan, we think you already know that we love you and that you have hundreds of arms that we wish we could wrap around you. A great lady has physically left us. But her spirit, her devotion to family, her devotion to shul and her love of HaShem live on and will be an inspiration to the MMAE family forever.

HaMakom yenachem etchem b'toch shaar aveyley Tzion v'Yerushalaim
May G-d comfort you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

President and one of the adoring grandchildren of Bubbe

I am so sad for the loss of our beloved Aunt Irene. She was such a caring person to every part of the families that she belonged to, and was so beloved by all who knew her. I was a bridesmaid in her wedding and when I was a teacher she and Uncle Frank would take me to dinner at Mandells on Liberty Road when there were PTA meetings, as they lived across the street from the school. May all the wonderful memories of her be forever in our hearts and may she be always for a blessing.
