Irene Frieda Chavez, 74, of Aguilar, Colorado, passed away peacefully on September 25, 2021. She was born on February 21, 1947 to Robert Cole and Josephine Reyes in Denver, Colorado. Irene is preceded in death by her husband, John Chavez Sr.; and parents Robert and Josephine. Irene is survived by her sons, John (Angel) Chavez Jr., Damian (Ariana) Chavez; and several grandchildren. Irene was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to many. Anyone who knew Irene knows she was one to spark up a conversation with just about anyone. Irene was never a "sit-around-and-do-nothing" type of person. She was constantly on the go and keeping herself busy, including her time spent being a dedicated member of the American Legion Auxiliary. The time she did spend at home, she enjoyed spending it in the kitchen, creating delicious meals and treats for her family and friends. Funeral services will be held Thursday, October 28, 2021 at Fort Logan National Cemetery in Denver, CO beginning at 11 AM.
