Irene Dee Ewers, age 18, passed away on November 8, 2020. She was born on January 7, 2002 to Liza Chapa and Daniel Lopez Sr. in Corpus Christi, TX. She graduated from Solomon M. Coles High School in 2020. She was employed by Mesquite House BBQ and Amazing Home Care.
Irene enjoyed playing volleyball, going shopping, making TikTok videos, making jokes and family gatherings especially during Easter. She will always be remembered for her love of laughter, her huge smile that would brighten the room, being a mentor to her siblings and the devotion she had to her family. She liked to cook and made the best rice. Irene was an unbreakable mother, her precious daughter meant the world to her and the love she had for her was endless. Irene was extremely goal oriented and had already planned to attend Del Mar College’s medical program like her older sister, Ashley, who graduated and is now active in that field. She was a loving mother, wife, daughter, sister, niece, aunt, cousin and friend.
