Irene McIntyre entered into eternal rest peacefully on Sunday, January 24, 2021 at Lord Chamberlain.

She was born on May 25, 1929 in Shelton, CT to Joseph and Anna Sedlock. She lost her mother at nine months old and was raised by her stepmother Elizabeth Polyak Sedlock.

On October 25, 1947 she married the love of her life, George McIntyre. They raised their three children together, their love of family was their greatest joy. Special niece Joann Wagner says” they were the greatest love of all.”

As her children grew older, Irene returned to work at Sikorsky Aircraft but she loved being a wife, mother and making their house a home. Making big Sunday dinners, holidays magical where people would come to look at her Halloween displays. She loved children, handing out lollipops and freezepops to the neighborhood children. Nana crocheted lap blankets for local nursing homes, volunteered at St. Joseph’s Church in Shelton with Poppa at their yearly carnival.

Irene and George were avid UCONN Girls Basketball fans. Irene went to a game gifted by Wesley Heights at 89 years old. Poppa and Nana spent time at their grandchildren’s events, sports, plays and traveling distances to see them. She became a special monthly reader at Stratford Academy reading to the students. Nana loved to read, instilling it in her children and grandchildren. She was reading right up to her last days.

Irene lost her husband George on September 12, 2009 followed by the loss of her son George, Jr. on January 21, 2010. Her heart was shattered but her strength was unwavering.

She is survived by her loving daughter and son-in-law Amy and Tony DiCocco of Stratford, and her beloved son Barry and his wife Shirley McIntyre of Nevada. Irene also leaves grandsons Erik (Kathy) McIntyre, George McIntyre III, Shaun (Lisa) McIntyre, Anthony and Chris DiCocco, granddaughters, Rebecca (Travis) Gordon, Sarah (Josh) Silverstein and Julianne (Brad) Blanchette, great-grandchildren Keith, Kyle and Evan McIntyre, Ellie Gordon, Alex (Kaysee) Metivier, Aiden and Oliver Silverstein and Brayden Blanchette and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her beloved husband and son, Irene was predeceased by her great grandson James Silverstein and her great granddaughter angel baby Maddison Blanchette, and also her siblings, Marian Hames, Helen Tripp, Joseph Paul and John Frank Sedlock.

The family would like to thank Irene’s special neighbors the Sharkey’s, Tenedine’s, Valentine's, Kondor’s, DiPiro’s and Adamo/Giordano’s and special friend Marilyn Calore. Also, a special thank you to Wesley Heights especially Monika, Shelia, Jen, Melissa, Diane, Andrea, Madi, Shannon, and her loving aides and the staff at Lord Chamberlain, Dee, Rosa, Joe, Laurie, Illiam and the aides who brought her loving care at the end of her life’s journey. The family is forever grateful.

“Poppa’s bride has come home to her little fella! We love you Mom!”

My condolences on your family's loss.
George hired me as a supervisor at Sikorsky in 1987 in the Processing Department. I had the opportunity to meet Irene at the Foreman's Club Christmas parties. They were a wonderful couple.

Again, my condolences.
