Irene experienced great joy in cooking for her family and being with her many friends. Her weekly Sunday lunches and holiday meals were so delicious and appreciated. She had a passion for reading, watching game shows and Dancing with the Stars. Her phone conversations with family and friends brightened her days. She started working as a teenager at a hot dog factory, Johansen’s Bakery in Perth Amboy, N. J. and later worked for Montgomery Wards, Alexander’s and Boscov’s Department Stores in Edison, N.J. and then Boscov’s in Lancaster, PA., after raising her three “Dolls” daughters. “Nan’s” loving care of her grandchildren was such a blessing.
