Irene Joan Veach Gassiot, 86, of Kennedale, TX, passed peacefully at home Sunday, May 17th, 2020.

Irene was born August 16th, 1933 in South Dakota to parents John Ross and Virginia “Pearl” Veach. Her family moved to Kennedale in the late forties. Irene was 3rd youngest in a family of nine children. She met and married the love of her life Jimmie Miller Gassiot in 1952. They were happily married for 67 years until Jim preceded her in death by six weeks. They raised a family and enjoyed many wonderful years watching over their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Irene loved being outdoors whether it was gardening, camping in their RV, or walking the neighborhood. She loved getting together with family and friends. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Kennedale and enjoyed their many friends and acquaintances there, she was very fond of game nights in the fellowship hall. Irene was gentle, kind, and loving; she always had a hug for everyone. She will be greatly missed and leaves a emptiness in our hearts and lives. She now rests with God and is reunited with her husband.

She is preceded in death by her sisters: Angeline Flowers and Ruby Kobeck; brothers: Leonard Meyer and John Veach, Jr.

She is survived by her sisters: Delvia Sirois, Mamie Otberg, and Dorothy Jamison; Sisters-in-law: Herma Veach and Patricia Brooks; brother James Meyer; daughter Deborah Gassiot of Kennedale, sons: Randy Gassiot and wife Angela of Fort Worth, John Gassiot and wife Vanessa of Chico, Andrew Gassiot and wife Judy of Mansfield; grandchildren: Jennifer Zanti (Joe), Regina Saenz (Mathew), Jayson Gassiot (Jessica), Steven Gassiot (Amber), Andrew Gassiot (Olivia), Julia Gassiot, great grandchildren: Julie, Jacquelyn, Jessica, Charlie, Aaron, Alex, Jimmy, Isaiah, Lyla, and Tynlea.
