Irene Agnes Costello JacobsenIrene Agnes Costello Jacobsen

Irene, a native of Brooklyn, N.Y., was born Feb. 19, 1928, to Helen and Arthur Costello. As a child she shared the task of walking a blind woman to and from work with one of her brothers. She also became a counselor at a summer camp for blind and partially-sighted children. Part of her duties were to teach them to swim and give nature study hikes. Learning to dance at age 2 and appearing on the stage at the Academy of Music and other N.Y. showplaces was a lifelong love affair. Her abilities included tap, toe and ballet. At a benefit performance at a local church she broke her toe and ended the dreams of a career in the arts.
When her youngest child started school full time, Irene went to work for the Long Island Press newspaper for four years. She became a secretary-bookkeeper for Red Ball Van Lines for the next 20 years until she retired and the family moved to Springtown. When her husband, Ed, joined the Loyal Order of Moose, she also joined and eventually was elevated to the rank of senior regent, a highly regarded position in the order. They visited nursing homes, children's hospitals, worked telethons and brought much joy with their handmade gifts and goodies.
