Obituary of Irene C. Makowski
IRENE C. MAKOWSKI, a long time resident of Mineola, NY passed away peacefully on June 12, 2020, at the age of 98. Irene had been residing at Dominican Village in Amityville, NY since 2015. Irene is predeceased by her beloved husband John of 53 years. Loving mother of four devoted children, Daniel (Mary), Kathleen Markham, Joseph (Kathleen) and Peter (Diane). Grandmother to Suzanne (Ronald Bagnera), Michael (Yesenia), Christopher (Rebecca), Christine (Nicholas Salerno), Maureen (Matthew Edwards), Kevin (Tracy), Melissa (Michal Sleszynski) and Jessica. Great-grandmother to Molly, Dylan; John; Dante, Mason, Gino; Mia, Abbey; Luke, Jack, Grant, Colin; Virginia, Elijah. Irene was the third daughter of Josephine and Herman Ofenloch with two older sisters, Helen and Evelyn, and a younger brother, Robert. Irene and John (Mutz and Jake, their affectionate names for each other) married February 22, 1944. They moved to Mineola in 1949 where they raised their family. Irene was active in the Corpus Christi Rosary Altar Society, she was known as the “bus lady” arranging for numerous trips to NYC museums and shows. Irene was an incredible cook and for many years at Christmas, treated family members with an amazing assortment of handmade cookies each presented in a Christmas tin. She was always learning to do new things and taught herself to play the accordion and the keyboard. Irene was active in the St. Brigid prayer group for many years and hand painted birthday cards for all the members. In her later years, you were truly blessed if you received an original painting as she discovered color photo copies and often sent a copy because “it was faster”. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Our Lady of Hope R.C. Church, Carle Place, NY or to Dominican Village, Amityville, NY.
