The last time I saw Irene was at Froedtert in Milwaukee when Dick was there, and came up to visit as I was living in Racine at the time. She was very sad, and alone behind a curtained waiting area, but cheered up a bit when she told me some stories about her big brother and my dad Joe, and a story about her and Dick. It seems that sometime back in the 50’s Dick had come to the farm to pick her up for a date, and at that time she just happened to be backing the manure spreader into the barn with a tractor. Dick was a truck driver and as such a recognizer of those talents, so when he saw her do that he said to himself “that’s my girl” and at that point their deal was sealed.
She also helped me over the phone several years ago with the family tree book I was creating. It was funny but she was just insistent that I include the names of their pet farm horse and cows in our Pitsch family tree.
Irene was one of my favorite aunties, because she was very kind and understanding to me especially when I was a child and also as an adult. RIP.
I wish to express my sincere condolences to all my cousins at this difficult time for you all.
