Irene J. (Dynowski) Peairs

December 31, 1928 ~ April 10, 2022 (age 93)


Irene Joan Peairs (nee Dynowski), age 93, of Troy Township, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022 surrounded by her family.  She was a resident of Ohman Family Living at Holly in Newbury Twp, Ohio since 2019.
She was born December 31, 1928 in Solon, Ohio to the late John and Mary Dynowski (nee Kotecki).  Graduate of Solon High School in 1946.  Married to Richard A. Peairs, June 15, 1946 and mother of eight, grandmother of 12 and great-grandmother of 12.
She retired from Welshfield Inn, where she was the baker for 36 years and was well known for her Sweet Rolls.  She enjoyed being in the kitchen at home from cooking large family meals, baking pies and breads, canning/freezing vegetables and making jams, and over the years making hundreds of her fruitcakes from scratch for Christmas gifts to family and friends!   Later in her years she found pleasure in reading pioneer/Amish love stories and going on outings with the Senior Citizens 55+ Club.  At Holly she was known for her beautiful smile, love of books and always sharing a positive/inspirational message to others! She was also a 23 year survivor of stage 4 melanoma cancer and rebounded from a stroke in 2009 until Parkinson’s hindered her health the last 8 years.  Irene was never a quitter!
