Irene C. Smith

Irene C. Smith, age 81, of Philadelphia, PA, passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Wednesday, January 11, 2023.

Irene was born on September 1, 1941 in Philadelphia, PA to the late Stanley and Rose Fudali (Smigel). She graduated from Lincoln High School in 1958 and then married John Smith in 1961.  Irene was a loving and devoted wife and mother, working full-time as an office manager while raising her three children.  Irene loved spending time with family, friends, and her four-legged friends.  She was an outstanding cook and made the best chicken and dumplings!  Irene was an avid Scrabble buff and always looked forward to playing, especially with a new opponent.  Her sense of humor, unconditional love and welcoming, open arms to all will be greatly missed.
