Died April 17, 2020
With deep sadness, we share the news of the passing of our dear mom, Irene Winogron, on Friday April 17, 2020.
After falling ill on Easter Sunday, her health continued to decline and she was called to Our Lord on Friday evening. We are grateful that she received the sacrament of the sick and additional prayers before her passing.
Irene lived a full life -- in many ways incredible. One of six daughters of the Duduk family living in Poland at the start of the Second World War, her five sisters and parents had their door knocked open by Russian soldiers in the middle of the night and were ordered to take only a few necessary belongings with them -- including warm clothes. They were loaded into train cars to Siberia, where they lived in the horrible cold, with almost no food or drink. Her older sisters were ordered to work in the camp, and for the parents and younger children, the challenge was to simply survive.
After an agreement with the Polish Army in Exile under Gen. Anders, the Russians released the families, and the Polish internees became refugees and were sent to one of several countries. Our mother’s family lived for a time in Palestine, in Ein Karem (The birthplace of John the Baptist) where she survived Typhoid fever, and in Argentina among other places, and eventually settled in Canada.
We found it amusing that my mother was able to surprise and entertain some of the staff in recent years at her retirement home by speaking to them in fluent Spanish, or Polish, Russian, or English. She was known for being feisty at times in her later years, at the same time giving staff at her retirement home many laughs, and for making them sing along to songs like “Goodnight Irene,” “Que Sera Sera,” and particularly “You are my Sunshine!”
Irene is lovingly remembered by her sons, Robert (Bob and Martha) William (Bill and Karla) and Steve (Pauline), and her sister Aleksandra, and is also survived by five grandchildren, Richard, Patrick, Adam, Sage and Haley and by three great-grandchildren, Kylen, Kaden and James, and many nieces and nephews in Ottawa and Chicago.
Our mom lived a life of Catholic faith, and of devoted service. She was fluent in four languages. She raised her family, worked hard and volunteered often, particularly with the Polish Catholic Church and community in Ottawa.
She met Richard (our father) here in Ottawa. But as if life hadn’t thrown her enough challenges, she was widowed in her 30’s back
