Let the memory of Irene be with us forever

Irene Jeanette Maiorana was born Irene J. Alfi from Vincent and Angelina Alfi in Brooklyn, NY. She was one of five children, Sadie, Salvatore, Josephine, and Vincent were her cherished brothers and sisters. Irene married on October 11, 1958 to James Maiorana and they had two children Amelia and Anthony. 

Irene was an extraordinary person that was loved by those who had the good fortune to know her, but it was her kind heart, patience, sincerity, compassion, and her smart and sarcastic sense of humor that will be missed, but remembered by all of us.

"Aunt Irene is one of my favorite Aunts. She was always so welcoming and happy to see us. She would always open her home to anyone, even  teach us to cook, and fill her kitchen and her day.  She could cook!  When I think of her, I think of her happines, love and spirit, she was always ready to laugh and love.  She has been and always will be a symbol of beauty and elegance.  Even though she should have been put on the highest pedestal, she never put herself above anyone. Her happiness and spirit of life was so strong you could not help but laugh with her,  even through the hard times.  She has given me so much happiness, love, and shown me how to have the love of life.  She will always be a standard I strive to live by.  I love you Aunt Irene."

"My Mom, best friend, psychiatrist, and the person that kept me confident and always made me believe that all will be alright regardless of my sometimes self destructive actions. Thank you for all you left with me and I will use these qualities the best I can.

I love you with all I have and you will always be missed.

Your Son, Anthony"
