I have VERY fond memories of Ilene and the Marietta Welfare League --- the best time in my life so far! Ilene was a generous, gracious lady who made me feel very special. I worked with her one time on the annual meeting that included the former members of the league. She was a marvel and the more I worked with her the more fond I became. I was so sadden by her passing. My most deepest condolences to her husband and the best of the Barengo clan for the loss of a true lady. HUGS!!

My mother, Drue Parry, was a close friend and quilter of your mother for many years while my mother lived in Marietta. I met your mother on several occasions, she was a lovey person. Our condolences on her passing.

Ilene was a beautiful woman inside and out. I will always treasure the time we had together. I wish I had more time at our last visit together but I feel blessed to have received the gifts and knowledge Ilene gave me. I'm also blessed that we were able to get to know eachother and that she was able to meet both my daughters. I will truly miss my friend and I'm not able to physically attend her service but I'd like to let the family know I'm thinking of all of them and I'd like to offer my condolences in this difficult time.
