Irene M. Parker, age 91 of Painted Post, NY passed away on Tuesday, July 2, 2019 at the Bath VA Medical Center.

She was born on April 21, 1928 in Buffalo, New York, the daughter of the late Frank and Bertha (Zgoda) Barczykowski. Irene was a graduate of Northside High School and later attended St. Joseph's Nursing School, graduating in 1948. She served in the United States Navy from 1951 to 1954. She married Edgar B. Parker on September 14, 1954. Irene worked as a nurse for Dr. Steven Pieri and later for Dr. Mala Sutton for 30 years before her retirement.

Irene was a member of Immaculate Heart of Mary Church and volunteered at the Corning Food Pantry for many years. She and Edgar spent many winters traveling to Florida. She was an avid reader and will be remembered by many in her neighborhood as a caregiver - always willing to help those in need. Time at their cottage with family on Keuka Lake was a favorite pastime. She was a great swimmer and would spend every chance she could in the water with her children and grandchildren.
