Irene Meta Dodig
1945 - 2021
SAUGERTIES- Irene Meta (Martin) Dodig, 76, of Saugerties, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, July 13, 2021. She was born to Meta and Ernst Martin on June 3, 1945 in Donnerau, Germany. She emigrated with her family to the United States when she was nine years old and settled in Saugerties. Irene graduated from Saugerties High School in 1964. She had a successful career in the food service industry, retiring as a General Manager with HMSHost. In her free time Irene most enjoyed spending time with her family, gardening, cooking, and taking long walks. She shared a passion for athletics with her husband and family; most notably competing in snowmobile racing and tennis. Later in life, one of her greatest joys came from cheering on her grandchildren from the sideline. She was predeceased by her husband of 54 years, Michael, and her parents. Irene will be lovingly remembered by her two sons, Michael Sr. (Brenda) and Randy Sr. (Lisa); her grandchildren, Catherine, Michael Jr., Randy Jr., and Madalyn; her siblings, Gunter, Anneliese, and Hilde; as well as many beloved nieces and nephews. The family will be gathering privately to honor her life.

As I am passing trough Catskill region for some strange reason Irene crossed my mind. To my surprise i stumbled on her obituary. I am very said to learn that just few days ago she past on. How sad that I did not reached out to her sooner. 34 years ago We worked together at Medina travel plaza. We both were foreigners, I came from Poland and she from Germany with some Polish roots. She was a delight, and a hard working woman. It was such a pleasure knowing her. My deepest condolences to the family and may she shines high bright . Rest in peace, Irene
