She was a member of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, Whiting, the St. John Rosary Society, Ladies Pennsylvania Slovak Catholic Union, BR. 79 and America Needs Fatima. Irene loved to work crossword puzzles, spend time working in her garden, was an amazing seamstress and an excellent cook (especially her chicken paprikash, homemade bread and roshki). Devoted to her family, Irene will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Whiting “Gimme Shelter” (for pets) would be appreciated.
