Adrienne Irvine - Manager/Funeral Director

Since a very young age, Adrienne has always dreamed of being a funeral director and having her own funeral home.  While attending Dunbarton High School, she completed her co-op placement at a local funeral home. She pursued her childhood dream and completed the Funeral Service Education Program at Humber College in 1996. She served families in the GTA for many years, until her and her husband moved to Whitby in 2003 and she began to work in Oshawa. Adrienne and Jeff are blessed with three sons Jackson, Quinton and Colton and their furry boy Reese. Much of their family time is spent enjoying lacrosse, hockey, biking, the outdoors and cottage life.

Adrienne is involved with many charitable organizations.  She is a member of the Oshawa Airport Lion's Club and is a Committee member of Dare 2B Different.   Whether out in the community attending or volunteering at community events, or providing the venue for charitable events and fundraisers, she believes strongly in giving back to her community.

In January 2013, Adrienne's dream of one day having a family business became a reality when her family opened its doors at DeStefano Funeral Home.
