Irene Cohen Obituary
Cohen, Irene



Irene Cohen, age 89, died peacefully on December 20, 2015. She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, teacher, and friend.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Martin Cohen. Irene and Martin were happily married for 55 years until his passing in 2001. She is survived by her children, Larry, Jay, Shashanah, Dee, and their spouses.

Raised in Brooklyn New York, she also lived in Long Island, New York, Laguna Woods, California, and finally in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She taught elementary school until she was 82 years old, a mentor and friend to many. She found great joy in her seven grandchildren and 14 great- grandchildren, as they did in her. She will be very much missed for her strong spirit, quick sense of humor, amazing generosity, and abiding love.
