When grandparents were cool
IRENE BENTLEY: FIGURE SKATING GRANDMOTHER
The first picture shows Irene in her skating outfit posing for the camera when she was a teenager in Boston. The photographer is unknown. The second photograph was taken by Brenda Olson and shows Irene posing with her grandson, Jonathan, during his First Communion in 2002. The third photograph taken by a family friend shows Irene posing with her family recently in Gloucester, Massachusetts. She is shown with her son, Doug, her son Ron, her grandson, Jonathan and yours truly.
Irene stopped ice-skating long before Jonathan was born, so the two never had a chance to ice skate together, but Jonathan appreciates his Nana just the way she is.
