Obituary of Irene PATZEL (nee Loosley)

February 18, 1935 – Kenora, Ontario
April 6, 2021 – Calgary, Alberta

Irene Patzel, beloved wife of the late Ernest (Ernie) Patzel, of Calgary, AB passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, at the age of 86 years.


Irene was a matriarch who loved creating memories with family and friends, capturing and archiving them, and sharing stories with her beloved children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed travelling, golfing, and camping across the country with her friends from the Happy Wanderers Trailer Club, whom she remained in contact with for life. Like a beautiful butterfly dancing in the breeze, Irene was joyful no matter what she’d endured. Her warm-hearted nature and bright sense of humour endeared her to everyone she came in contact with. She will be lovingly remembered by her family and friends. Condolences, memories and photos may be shared and viewed on Irene’s obituary at


The family will be having a Celebration of Life at a later date once it’s safe to gather again.


In living memory of Irene, a tree will be planted in the Ann & Sandy Cross Conservation Area by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, CALGARY, AB T2E 2V6, Telephone: 403-276-2296.
