Irene has been riding with Muskego Senior Taxi for a while. She loves having the peace of mind, knowing she can call the Taxi, make an appointment for a ride, and a friendly driver will arrive on-time to pick her up and get her to her destination safely. Irene still has her own car and does drive herself around town. But she likes to use the Taxi when she travels and needs to be dropped off at the Amtrak station or the airport without having to leave her car in the parking lot.
And more recently she needed a ride to an appointment while her car was being repaired. She is so grateful that her car being in the shop didn’t stop her from keeping her important appointment. The best part of the Taxi service for Irene is knowing that she is not “locked in” to her home and she can come and go as she needs, even without driving herself. Irene loves getting out using The Taxi and enjoys the independence it provides her. She gets to go where she needs to go while engaging with a lot of different people.
Irene’s been blessed with her wonderful family. She has one daughter and four sons. They all live in various places around the US, but luckily one of her sons lives in the area, so he’s also available to drive her if needed. The Taxi saves her son time and allows all of her children to know that their mother is safe. Irene also has 16 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren.
We asked Irene, “What’s your secret to living a long and happy life?” She told us she enjoys doing jigsaw puzzles and crossword puzzles. She’s a strong believer in doing what we can to keep our minds sharp. She reads quite a bit and sure likes to travel. Having an active life keeps her young.
