Irene was always my younger annoying cousin and we both loved each other. I never thought she would die because she was always too ornery and always a great fighter to allow death to happen so soon. when we spoke she always loved to talk about family and old times and we would talk for hours and hours going down memory lane.  my oldest daughter Noreen who was 10 years old at the time was the flower girl in her wedding to John and I was proud to be a matron of honor also. Irene was always happy and laughing no matter what her circumstances were she could always handle anything. We will really miss her but we will always remember her as a wonderful person who we had all too briefly and who was loved by all of us. Our sincere sympathies to John Jason and Gina. Words cannot describe the grief we all feel but we know she is now at peace with her mom and dad in heaven.

John, Gina, and Jason

Please accept my sincere condolences on your loss. I'm glad I was able to see her last summer. She still had that wicked sense of humor. I hope that your memories will bring you comfort. Look for subtle signs and you will know that she is and always will be with you in some way.

You are all in my prayers.

Irene.....its been four days since you left me and I am totally lost. You were always the smart one in the family. You always new what to do, no matter how bleak things got you were always like a rock. You always had that edge to ya, even right up to the end you still had the strength to make me laugh. Me and the kids miss you a lot, I know you'll always be there with us no matter what. Set a stool aside for me at the heavenly Karaoke bar. I'll be with you soon. Maybe you can sing " CRAZY " for me. Miss you much. Love, Your Husband John

" In Memory of my Mom " by Jason Nigro..............I'm gonna miss your singing and your laughter, I'm gonna miss being a huge pain in your ass. You were above all " The Yard Sale Queen " and a notorious Joker. At times you thought you were the absolute best, but you really did stink at poker. I'm really not good at showing my feelings, but I know in time my heart will start healing. I'm really gonna miss your hugs & kisses. With Love from your son. Prayers and good wishes,Rest in Peace. Jason....aka Shaggy

Aunt Irene - you were always quick witted and the first with the sharp comebacks. I will miss our holiday gatherings with all of our family around the table laughing and conversing. You were always the one with the funny stories and you narrated them perfectly (TOAST!!). You will be missed but never forgotten. I know that you are up there in heaven singing with Elvis and probably giving him a couple pointers. Give my Grandfather a hug for me.

Love your Nephew Nick

Irene;

There was never a dull moment when you where around. You
always brought laughter to our family gatherings with your wild
stories and jokes! I'm truly sorry we did not spend time together in the
last few years, there never seemed to be enough time. We did get
to catch up when we spoke on the phone, and you never lost a beat!

You will be sadly missed by your nephews, Jerry and I. I'll always tell
Alex and Mia about there "Great" Aunt Irene, and how she kept us all on our toes!! I Love You

Linda

Second Cousin Irene

Shared by Noreen Anthony-Tabar on May 5, 2015

For some reason, Irene wanted me to be the flower girl.  Not our cousin Connie, but there are pictures of her wedding and me as the flower girl.  The dresses were pretty nice.  Compaired to what usually is out there for wedding and brides and brides maids dress.  For some reason, I think because my mother was her favorite cousin, I become her favorite littel second cousin.  Whenever anyone saw her, she was laughing, and giving advice to anyone she cared for.  Kinda young , and I am sorry I lost touch with her by the time I went into the Navy, in 1992.  Still sad that all of the family on my mothers side is gone ;_(  Rest in Peace Cousin Irene.
 

The night I met Irene!

Shared by Marybeth Spence-Archer on May 3, 2014
The night I met Irene it was a normal night at work! How wrong was I! All I heard was a lot of cussing! Words I never heard are used! And boy was she loud! So I figuire I would go in this room to make sure nobody was getting hurt! I go in the room and Irene Says Hey You look pretty smart get these f..ing idiots out of my room! So they left we started talking while I was trying to calm her down and get her more compfortable! After awhile they made sure she was good! I asked her what happen to your nails(she a three really long nails) Oh I left them in the aide arm at the other place! They are my weapons if any funny buisness happens here! A Girl has to protect themselves! Of course I lost it then laughing really hard!! I told her I will make sure no one hurts you as long as we keep it real! I took her I'm really honest person so I will always tell you the truth! Evertime I took care of Irene she always took a little peace of my heart! If she want something I got it for her! I gave her a lot of hair bows and ect! We would fight over make up which was the better brand! She always told the truth and if you weren't feeling good She would say you look like shit what's wrong didn't get any last night! She would make u feel better with her quirky way! Or a good leading with her wit! You would never win an argument cause she would always 1up you!! Thank you Irene for being you! Knowing you has made me the person I'm a today! Friends are few but the few I have mean everthing to me! U were my friend God bless!!!

How I met my wife

Shared by John Nigro on May 3, 2014

The way this starts is almost like a scene out of American Grafitti. After I graduated from Archbishop Wood High in 1969 I had a number of jobs, nothing that would rock your world, but I eventually ended up at a car dealer on welsh road & Bustleton avenue. While I worked there I met some new friends and we sometimes went to lunch at Shoney's Big Boy on the Roosevelt Blvd. Well one friday evening after work me and one of my friends drove over to Big Boy's. Now incase you never heard of Shoney's Big Boy they had an outside area were you drove your car up and a young lady on roller skates would take your order. Well on that particular friday evening parked right next to us were Two young ladies who thought they were all that, and of course me and my friend started talking to them hoping that we could pick them up. " NOT " That fast Irene Sliced & Diced us, we didn't know what hit us. So as fate would have it we were there two weeks later, same time and same parking space, and guess who pulls up next to us ? You guessed it Irene and her girlfriend. Well this time we got their phone numbers, and had some idle conversation. While we were talking Irene says do either of you Roller Skate,of course wanting to get to know her better I say Yes. well as I found out Irene was a Semi-Pro roller skater and skated in competion. Boy did I look like an ass. But she taught me how to skate both forwards & backwards and also waltz.and the rest is history. I've never met a smarter person on the face of this earth and she was always there for me, both in good times and bad. You just can't imagine how much I'll miss her. Right now she's at the heavenly karaoke bar or running a Bingo game for the Angels. I'll always love yo. Your Husband John
