Irene M. Robert

Cared for animals

Irene M. Robert, a homemaker and animal lover, died Saturday of cancer at Stella Maris Hospice in Towson. She was 66.

Mrs. Robert, who lived in Pikesville for 35 years, was remembered by her daughter, Georgia Draucker of Charlotte, N.C., for taking care of animals, including dogs, squirrels, birds, deer and neighbors' cats.

Before moving to Pikesville, the former Irene Myers lived in West Baltimore with her husband of 44 years, George E. Robert.

She was born in Baltimore and graduated from Seton High School in 1946. During World War II, she worked for the Coast Guard. She also worked for the Social Security Administration in Baltimore during the early 1950s.

Services are scheduled to be held at 10 a.m. tomorrow at MacNabb Funeral Home, 301 Frederick Road in Catonsville.

Besides her husband and daughter, survivors include another daughter, Donna MacNabb of Vienna, Va.; a sister, Josephine Miller of Catonsville; and five grandchildren.

The family has suggested memorial donations to the Humane Society of Baltimore County, 1601 Nicodemus Road, Reisterstown, 21136.
