Irene Theresa Tadrzynski, age 89, died Friday, February 3, 2017 at St. John Macomb Hospital in Warren, Michigan. Irene was born August 9, 1927 in Detroit, Michigan, daughter of the late Anthony Sabalinski and the late Bernice (nee: Rozniak) Sabalinski.

Irene was raised on the east side of Detroit and learned to speak English in the first grade having learned Polish as her first language living with Polish parents. She attended St. Stanislaus Catholic School where she met her future husband at a high school dance.

Irene's father died when she was in high school, and unfortunately she quit high school to support her widowed mother and the family. Irene worked at a local theater to support her family and later in 1948 married the love of her life Arthur Tadrzynski. Irene and her husband settled in Detroit and soon started a burgeoning family having four children of their own.

Irene became a stay at home mom raising her children and tending to the home and the children's daily activities. However after losing her husband in 1976, Irene returned to the workforce finding employment with Father Murray Nursing Home in Center Line. Irene worked for many years at the nursing home before retiring. In retirement Irene eventually moved to the Fraser Woods Senior Residences where she enjoyed her daily visits with her neighbors and son.

Irene cherished her family and grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She will be forever remembered for her kindness to others and her willingness to give of herself and time. She was devoted to her Catholic faith and dedicated many hours in her younger years at St. Angela Catholic Church. She is now rejoined with her husband Art in the Kingdom of Heaven praising God for all of eternity.

Irene was the beloved wife of the late Arthur Tadrzynski, and the dear mother of Mark, Elaine (Thom) Hartung, Nancy (Steven) Foeller, and Thomas (Christa) Tadrzynski. Irene is also survived by her cherished grandchildren, Erin Doyle, Michelle Barron, Rachel Foeller, Rebecca Buszke, Jenna MacGregor, Lauren Hampshire, Kevin Taylor, Daniel Foeller, Scott Foeller, and her great-grandchildren; Sophia, Hadassah, Inez, Aletheia, Mackenzie, Tirzah, Andrew, Luke, Landon. Mrs. Tadrzynski was predeceased by her siblings; Theodore, Eugene, Sabina, and Donald.

Visitation for Irene will be held Thursday, February 9th from 3-9pm, with a 7pm Rosary Service, at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 1/2 Mile Road) in Warren. She will lie in state Friday from 9:30am until the time of her Funeral Mass at 10am at St. Margaret of Scotland Catholic Church in St. Clair Shores. Celebrating the Liturgy will be Reverend Fr. Ronald DeHondt.
