Life Story for Irene F. Humphrey

Irene F.  Humphrey
Irene F. Humphrey, a resident of Yonkers, NY and Fort Lauderdale, FL, passed away August 10, 2018, surrounded by her loving family. She was the beloved wife of John “Jack” Humphrey. They recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in January 2018. Irene was born in the Bronx, NY on April 26, 1936, the daughter of Mary and Patrick Mangan.

Irene attended St. Luke’s Elementary School and Sacred Heart of Mary Academy in the Bronx. She subsequently attended Miller Secretarial School in Manhattan and was then employed by ExxonMobil. In her early years, she devoted much of her energy to her parish and its school by overseeing the music program. She was a volunteer at various hospitals and nursing homes, devoting her time the past 20 years at Rosary Hill Home in Hawthorne, NY.

Irene is survived by her loving husband John “Jack” and their 4 children; John III (Rosemary) of Wall, NJ, Thomas (Cynthia) of Greenwich, CT, Ann of Bronxville, NY and Maureen Verre (John) of Briarcliff Manor, NY. Also surviving are her 2 sisters; Margaret Lyons of Rye, NY and Ann Virag of Ossining, NY. Irene was the proud grandmother of 9 grandchildren; John IV, Jennifer, Katherine, Theo, Ava, Philip, Thomas, Christopher and Natalie.

Irene was extremely proud of her Irish heritage and her calling in life was one of helping others. Among Irene’s greatest achievements was her 37years of sobriety as a member of Alcoholics Anonymous, one day at a time. Throughout those 37 years, she helped countless people on their journey to sobriety. She enjoyed traveling throughout Europe and cruising the Caribbean.

Visitation will be held at Flynn Memorial Home, on Central Park Avenue, on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 from 2-4 & 7-9 pm. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 at 10 am, at Our Lady of Fatima Church, Scarsdale, NY. Entombment will follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Hawthorne, NY. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Center for Discovery, a special school that her disabled granddaughter, Natalie Verre attends. The address is PO Box 840, Harris NY 12742.
