Irena is survived by her husband Vit, her children Olympia and Joanna, and her grandchildren Lukas, Vienna, Anika and Eliana.
She will be fondly remembered as a free spirit with a zest for life, finding joy in the moments. She was humble, but wise. She was a devoted grandmother, loving wife, inspirational mother and a faithful friend. Her artistic gifts were shared with all who were fortunate enough to encounter it, including her singing, and dancing. Her creative abilities extended to her being an excellent seamstress, who scoffed at the use of a pattern. She put her heart and soul into her cooking, warming the spirits of those she served. She spent her life raising others spirits, regardless of the circumstances. No matter what, she was always laughing, always jolly. Watching old comedies and musicals will never be quite the same without her.
