We knew Irene from St. Stan's and she was what you could call "Our Food Friend".....we would see her at Old Country Buffet or Friendly Chinese Buffet. It was always a random meeting and always a pleasure to spend time with her. We had some great conversations about every topic under the sun. She was always interested in what we had to say, and we loved all that she had to share . Age crossed all lines in this friendship. We were all ageless and just a bunch of pals that got together and had a few laughs. She would always say...I have to be going....and then sit down for "just one more thing". Irene was one classy lady.....from that red hair that only she could carry off 100% to her beautiful clothes and coats! As we read her notice, it was truly amazing all the things that she was involved in. Amazing, but not surprising. I will truly miss her and the hopes of meeting her at one of our food spots. We would always look around and see if she was there.....At Chinese, the boss lady would tell us that your friend with the red hair was here today or whenever.....she'd often stop after a doctor appointment hoping that we might be there too!! Well my dear fiend......Farewell......may you be at peace and know that you will be missed! RIP Irene Skretny

It is with much sorrow that I learned of Irene's passing. Please accept our deepest condolences.
I will never forget how Irene helped me with traffic court when I was a teenager and lived on Paderewski Drive.
