Obituary for Irene A. Garamoni

Irene Garamoni, 100 years old, born in Oak Park died on May 23, 2018 at her daughter's home in Alexandria, VA. Irene lived in Oak Park and River Forest until 2011.

Irene was the daughter of Julius Breneisen of Jefferson City, Missouri, and Mathilde Bedard of Oak Park. She graduated from Oak Park River Forest High School in 1936 and married Michael Garamoni in 1944. They made their home in Oak Park where they raised their three children.

Irene volunteered at Meal on Wheels, Pick-A-Pet Welfare Foundation, and St. Luke Church. She loved to travel and in her 70s took up tap dancing. In her early 80s she began bowling with a Senior League at the Circle Lanes in Forest Park. After 11 years, she gave up bowling at the age of 93 when she moved to Virginia.

Her first love, however, was always family. She celebrated her 100th birthday with family in April and was all smiles that day.

Irene was preceded in death by her husband Michael, her son James and her grandson, Mark. She is survived by her daughter, Donna and her son Michael, Jr. (Cindy) of California, 6 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
