Irene was born in England on April 3, 1926 and passed away December 4, 2019. After meeting her husband Raymond during World War II, Irene moved to the United States with him in 1945 and became a homemaker. She was active in the community, including VFW Marino-Piscopo Post 3799 in Lyndhurst, the American Legion Auxiliary, AARP, and the Little Retirees club. Irene was social and very likable, and she knew no strangers. She was a perfectionist but also had a great sense of humor, and she will be dearly missed.
