WEATHERFORD —  

 

 WEATHERFORD — Irene Gregg Briles, 79, passed away Monday morning, Aug. 20, 2012, at home.

Irene was born July 29, 1933, in Fort Worth and was raised in Springtown. She graduated from Springtown High School in 1950 and was a 1954 graduate of Texas Wesleyan College. She had a long career as an elementary school teacher for 29 years and retired in 1992.

Irene was married to the Rev. Robert H. Briles for 56 years and was the mother of Susan Briles, Mary Katherine Gresham and the grandmother of Sara Elizabeth Dixon. When Bob and Irene married, she became a member of the large family in the Central Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church as a minister’s wife. Wherever Bob was appointed, she was the devoted preacher’s wife. She was always full of grace and was always known for her sweet smile. Irene’s greatest joy in life was her family and they were completely devoted to her.

She was preceded in death by her son, Robert H. Briles Jr.; her parents, Edith and Radford Gregg Sr.; and her brother, Radford Gregg Jr.

Irene is survived by her husband, Robert H. Briles; daughters, Susan, and Mary Katherine and husband, Joe Gresham; granddaughter, Sara Dixon and husband, Jonathan Dixon; aunt; Jean Berry; and sister-in-law, Susan Gregg.
