Irene Brzyski passed away on August 30, 2023 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease and later, breast cancer. Irene was 89 years old.

Irene (Klos) was born in Poland on December 21, 1933 and emigrated to the United States when she was 16 years old. She married Joseph Brzyski when she was 18 years old, and they were happily married for 57 years before Joseph passed away on June 3, 2010.

Irene was an exceptional wife, mother, grandmother, and homemaker. Her greatest love and devotion were for her family. Irene was always giving of her time and energy, kind, caring, helpful and compassionate to everyone she met. Irene made a wonderful difference in others’ lives by her hospitality. She was a master gardener and an exceptional cook, making creative meals from the vegetables, fruits, and berries she grew in her garden. When anyone came to Irene and Joseph’s home, they never left hungry or empty handed. Irene aways cooked and gathered the family together by hosting holiday meals with family and friends at her home.
