Irene Frances Sullivan, 88, of Brewster, MA passed away at Cape Cod Hospital on July 12, 2021.

Born in New York, NY in 1932 to the late James and Irene Connelly.

Irene led a great life and had tremendous fun along the way. She grew up in New York City with three great brothers. After high school she met her future husband, Bob, on a blind date. After a whirlwind courtship, they were married and moved to Hanover, NH while Bob attended graduate school. She was a fantastic mother and wife who enjoyed travelling and spending time with her children and grandchildren. Irene and Bob spend a good deal of their lives in Connecticut, Florida, and Cape Cod. Ever the adventurer, she was a fantastic co-pilot when Bob purchased an airplane. Irene was always very active in the Catholic Church, wherever she lived.

She is survived by her children: Cathleen Gerardi of Trumbull, CT; Robert ( Kate) of Kirkwood, PA; Mary of Harwich Port and Chatham, MA and David ( Karen) of Raleigh, NC and 7 beautiful grandchildren: Nora, Vanessa and Antonio Gerardi; Kathleen and Russell Sullivan; and Aidan and Jillian Sullivan.

In addition to being predeceased by her parents, she is also predeceased by her husband, Robert Russell Sullivan.

When we were growing up, Chuck and I or Marcia and I would go to Harwichport for a week to work at the Whale's Tail. Aunt Irene and Uncle Bob were generous and welcoming and let us stay in the garage apartment and paid us to work at the store (and polish the brass items when we weren't busy). I have such fond memories of going on the motor boat, eating penny candy, going to baseball games at night, even taking my first sip of beer at Bob's encouragement. Summertime with Bob and Irene will always stay with me.
I am sending love, peace and all good things to the Sullivan family.
Mary Sullivan Walsh & family
