On Sunday, Aug. 2, 2020, Irene Marie (née Petock) Griffith, of Ewing, N.J., passed peacefully in her sleep at the age of 90 years old.

Irene, a loving wife, mother, aunt, grandmother and great-grandmother, had spent the weekend surrounded by her family.

Irene was born on Dec. 15, 1929, in Mahanoy City, to Wassel Petock and Mary Urban Petock. Irene married Ivor Griffith (known to all as Bud) on Oct. 21, 1950.

Irene and Bud met as teenagers at a local dance and she continued to have a love of dancing for the rest of her life. She was happiest gathering with family and friends. Her favorite things to do included playing cards with the girls, visiting Atlantic City and reading. She was proud of having a long career at Trenton State College (now called TCNJ), and she instilled a legacy of hard work and a commitment to family. She was a parishioner at The Church of Saint Ann, Lawrenceville, N.J.
