Irene R. Riley

August 17, 1931 ~ January 4, 2021 (age 89)


RILEY, Irene R., 89, of Brooksville, Florida, passed away on Monday, January 4, 2021 at AdventHealth Tampa.

My Mom was born in 1931 in Canada. She was a simple farm girl who moved to New Haven, Connecticut in her late teens. She lived with a relative while she finished school. She was very social and full of life. She made many good friends throughout her life. She married the first time and had two children. In 1973 she married a second time to Joseph E. Riley and started a new journey. She moved to Brooksville, Florida where she lived for over 38 years.

Irene is survived by two daughters, Karen E. Scott of North Haven, Connecticut and Colleen E. Kruk of Lutz, Florida and four grandchildren, Robert J Scott (CT), Christopher Scott (CT), Trevor R. Kruk (FL), and Evan B. Kruk (FL) and seven great-grandchildren; two stepchildren, Maria Murad (FL) and Thomas Riley (FL) and three grandchildren.

May she rest in peace with the knowledge that her family dearly loved her and will miss her every day until we see her again. In lieu of a service, the family has chosen to schedule a Celebration of Life at a future date to be announced to family and friends.
