Irena "Irene" Isabella Kallay Conlin

Irena "Irene" Isabella Kallay Conlin left us on February 15, 2011 after a short illness. Irena was born in Chicago, IL on August 29, 1917 to Jan (George) and Zofia (Sophia) A. Zbroniec Kallay.
She raised five children mostly singlehandedly after the death of her husband, Edison J. Conlin. She moved from Chicago to New Orleans, LA, thereafter to Ft. Walton Beach, FL, then to Everett, WA, where she resided for many years, living the last four years in Seattle, WA, with her loving son-in-law, Jay; and Randy and Victoria, her loving son and daughter. Our mother was a loving, giving and amazingly talented woman.
She is cherished by her children, James Sereyka, Ron and Randy Conlin, Veronica DeGraaf and Victoria Wangsmo. Irene's grandchildren, Nikki, Sergi, Greg, Dante, Sean and Seth; and many great-grandchildren, along with extended family in Chicago and in Europe, love her dearly.
Funeral services are held at 1 p.m., February 26, 2011, at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church, 2619 Cedar St. Everett, WA. A website is also available to view at She will be laid to rest in a ceremony in Snohomish, WA.
