Irene A. (Czajkowski) Young, 78, of Templeton, died unexpectedly Monday, October 25, 2021, in UMass Memorial Medical Center—University Campus, Worcester, after being stricken ill at home.

I wish to extend my deepest sympathy to you Clem and family on the recent passing of wife/mother. Irene was my younger cousin who I saw more frequently when we were younger at family gatherings especially at aunt Caroline's home. Irene 's father, Ed was my mother Stella younger brother.
I will always remember Irene's beautiful SMILE and energy !!
Please be assured that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your children at this very sad time. May God give you strength and peace.

Dear Clem,
I am so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of my cousin, Irene. I have fond memories of our summers we spent together as children. Taking turns. of Irene coming to the city in Providence, RI and my going to Gardner/Templeton for the summers. As always we lost contact when I moved to Florida. with my husband and family. My sympathies to the children. May God comfort you and your family and bring you peace at this
sad time.
