Irene Sorensen Wenker

Irene (Letts) Sorensen Wenker, 89, of Farmington, CT, formerly of Townshend, VT, passed away Friday, September 30, 2016, surrounded by her loving family.She was the daughter of the late Millard and Hazel (Harris) Letts and was also predeceased by her first husband, John C. Sorensen, and her second husband, Harold E. (Bud) Wenker. Her sister, Marion Bulgren, and brothers, Millard and William have passed as well. As her family and friends reflect on her life, the memories of family gatherings, parties and lunches with friends, and Christmases in Vermont will be fondly remembered. In her early years, Irene was quite adept at knitting sweaters and socks as well as sewing clothing for her children. She loved to put together 1000-piece puzzles, was an avid reader, and was known as a strong competitor in the game of Rummikub. She had been employed as a bank officer for First New Haven National Bank of CT. Irene will most surely be missed by her family and friends. To carry on her legacy, her family traditions, Irene is survived by her five children: Deborah (Sorensen) Valentine and her husband, David, of Vineland, NJ; Keith Sorensen and fiance Susan Pawluk of Farmington, CT; Dorothy (Wenker) Gagnon and her husband, Don, of Stratford, CT; Sharon (Wenker) Richters and her husband, Edward, of Windsor, CT; and James F. Wenker and wife, Annette, of Windsor, CT; 12 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, extended family, and special Vermont friends.
