January 26, 1947 - July 22, 2014

It is with deep sorrow that we announce our cherished Irene's passing in the early hours of July 22, 2014 at Credit Valley Hospital. She was predeceased by her father, Ierzy Niepomnik and is survived by her beloved mother, Krystyna Niepomnik. Throughout her illness, her loving mother, Krystyna and steadfast longtime friends, Segundo Ramos and Edith Kady were at her side. Irene was a special education teacher during most of her 35 years of teaching. She had a unique way of loving and teaching her students with genuine affection, a sense of excitement and fun and tons of patience. She was truly a "people person." Her naturally energetic, vivacious, warm and compassionate nature brightened every room she entered and endeared her to the many friends she made throughout her life. There was no subject that did not interest her; she wanted to know about everything, the days were never long enough to do all that she wanted to accomplish. She loved travelling and in her later years enjoyed improving her ballroom dancing skills. Family members and friends benefitted by her dedication to extending a helpful hand whenever needed; be it driving, advocating for people at doctor's appointments and hospital visits, doing errands or lovingly offering a shoulder to cry on. She will be missed by many of us more than we can now imagine. The family wishes to thank the doctors, nurses and staff at Credit Valley Hospital for the excellent care given to Irene. If desired, donations may be made to the hospital. Family and friends will be received at the RIDLEY FUNERAL HOME, 3080 Lake Shore Blvd. W. (between Islington and Kipling Aves., 416-259-3705). VISITATION on FRIDAY from 2:00 to 4:00 and 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. Prayers will be held at 8:15 p.m. A FUNERAL MASS will be held at ST. TERESA'S CATHOLIC CHURCH (100 Tenth Street, Etobicoke) on SATURDAY at 10:00 a.m. Entombment will follow at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Messages of Condolences may be placed at
