Irene was born on November 19, 1942, to Patrick and Margaret (Kivlehan) Kelly in Dublin, Ireland. After graduating from St. Nicholas of Tolentine High School Irene went onto to have a career in Finance. Irene’s career began at MGM Studios and ended at Colgate Palmolive. Irene retired from Colgate Palmolive after 25 years and attended The Mildred Elley School and became a Medical Assistant. Irene loved and enjoyed her second career as a Medical Assistant, her true calling for helping and taking care of others.
Predeceased by her husband and true love, Joseph Flanagan, her granddaughter, Sabrina, parents Patrick and Margaret Kelly and brothers Michael and Brendan.
Survived by her sister Mary (William), children, Margaret (Mark), Patrick (Sharon), William (Rosann), grandchildren, Patrick, Mark (Elizabeth), PJ (Erika), John, Stephen, William III, Sabrina, Matthew, Julia, Roman, Thomas, Liam and Joseph, great-grandchildren, Ronin and Atlas, nieces and nephews, Deirdre, Geraldine, Ellen (Thomas), Edward (Sarah), Shay, Bryan, and Lillian along with 11 great nieces and nephews and one great-great niece.
Irene was a devout Catholic, talented knitter, seamstress, made a hell of an Irish soda bread, and the most amazing brownies that were always present in her home and shared at all family gatherings. Irene shared her secret ingredient, “made with LOVE.” Irene always welcomed everyone into her heart and home where you were treated like her own.
Cheers to a life well lived!
