Stanislawa “Irene” Cina, age 73, of Sherrills Ford, NC, went to be with her Lord peacefully on December 20, 2019 at Carolina Caring in Sherrills Ford, NC. Our good Lord has shown his mercy and compassion by calling Irene home after she endured a prolonged and difficult illness.

Born September 15, 1946 and raised in Germany, Irene left Frank Cina, her devoted husband of 42 years, to cherish her memories.

Also left to cherish her memories are Irene’s son John Stumpp of Charlotte, NC; granddaughter Alexandra Perry and husband Jim; great grandsons Bentley and Hayden of Kings Mountain, NC; grandson Damon Stumpp of Indian Trail, NC; son Steven Cina and wife Crystal; grandson Zane; granddaughter Riley Friedman and husband Wayne; great-grandson Finley; granddaughters Morgan, Addyson and Grace of York, SC; son Robert Cina of Topsail, NC; son Joseph Cina and wife Diana; granddaughter Josie; grandsons Frankie and Max of Topsail, NC; and son Nicholas Cina of Sherrills Ford, NC; granddaughter Aniyah Benton of Charlotte, NC.

Additionally Irene is survived by her sister Maria Alexandra Sawtschenko of Germany; cousin Henek Koksanowicz and wife Amanda and daughter Julia of Hamilton, Ontario.

It is often said that Irene never met anyone she did not like or that did not like her. She enjoy being a “mom” to all who would allow her such a privilege.

I was so blessed to know Irene and to be one of her caregivers. We shared so many laughs and I will always cherish my sweet Stanislawa. She was truly one of a kind.

Everyone knew Irene as the most caring and loving person they had ever met. You were always greeted with a hug and a kiss on the cheek. (Lipstick was usually evidence left behind that you met Momma Irene.) She cared about everyone and would do anything necessary to go out of her way to help someone in need no matter how big the need was. She knew everyone by name from the dishwasher to the owner. Heaven gained an amazing angel that will be missed by so many here. She touched everyone in a special way that will always be remembered.

No matter how bad a day she might have had, Irene was more concerned about the people around her. Her love for her Husband and Boys radiated from her and she will be missed and always with us.
