It is with great sadness that we have learned that Irena has passed away. The Hrynewych family offers our condolences to Irena’s family at this time of loss and grief. Irene brought great happiness and joy to our father after our mothers died. He had a golden opportunity to live with a warm and wonderful person and her family. He often spoke of the great joy and love that they shared and the pleasure he derived from her children and grandchildren. Irena was the best companion, an intelligent, woman involved with the Ukrainian community in Phoenix. an exemplary mother, and a blessing to all that knew her. We offer our prayers for her peace and to her family our encouragement to accept the passage of her life to heaven.
May she remain in our memories forever.
God bless you.
