Irene and the Tower

Weep, skies! We’ve lost Irene
Of the Queen Anne tall and palace-y.
She rides out on spring’s lightning bolt
And not pathetic fallacy.

Let the winds blow.
Let the stones fall low.
Let light itself lose its glow.
The Lioness is dead.

From Irene Buck's family:


March 23, 1944 – March 30, 2013

Irene Patricia Buck, 69, passed away Saturday at her daughter’s home in Vallejo following a brief illness with an agressive cancer.

Irene was born in San Francisco to Edward and Esther Del Rosario on March 23, 1944. She held various positions throughout her life as a TV producer for KQED, an artist, a social worker and was the manager of the Cancer Society Thrift Shop. Irene was involved in politics and was a campaign manager for several local candidates. She enjoyed collecting antiques, gourmet cooking, gardening, and spending time with her family.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her brothers, Edward, Jack and Louis Del Rosario.

Survivors include her daughter and son-in-law, Angela and Anthony Brennan; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Peace be to you and your family, sweet Light and Lioness.

Best wishes.
