Obituary

Irene S. D’Olivio, 91, passed away at her home in Hopewell Junction next door to her daughter on Saturday, August 10, 2019. She was a beloved mother and grandmother and a long-time Hopewell Junction resident. Irene was born in Bayside, Queens, to Stephen and Helen Sokoloski. She was predeceased by her husband, Bruno D’Olivio, in 2012. She leaves behind her daughter, Raphael Kosek and son-in-law, Stanislaw Kosek, and two grandchildren, Kateri and John Kosek.

In June of 1948, Ms. Irene Sokoloski was selected Miss Wappingers Falls and took part in the Poughkeepsie Regatta parade celebration. Her first job was with the Poughkeepsie New Yorker, now the Poughkeepsie Journal, which published her poems. She worked as an executive secretary at Vassar College before her daughter was born, and later as a travel agent and a beloved TA in Special Education at John Jay High School. She was very proud of being a volunteer at the nascence of the East Fishkill Community Library which was housed in an old church, and she always believed in the importance of books and reading. She was fond of history, literature, music, art, and animals, inculcating a love of these in her daughter who is very grateful. She was skilled at sewing and loved making everything from French designer dresses to beautiful ragdolls based on the Laura Ingalls Wilder characters. She loved to travel and was a marvelous cook. As a Depression era child, she fondly remembered Eleanor Roosevelt on her way to Hyde Park, stopping at her parents’ Dutchess Tea Room on Route 9. Irene had a strong faith and was a long-time member of St. Columba Parish in Hopewell Junction.

Calling hours will be held on Thursday from 2 to 4 pm and 7 to 9 pm at McHoul’s Funeral Home in Hopewell Junction, with a Mass at 10 am, Friday, August 16, at St. Columba Church. Interment will follow at St. Denis Cemetery. The family is very grateful to Natalya, her aide, and Hudson Valley Hospice. In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests donations to the Hudson Valley Hospice Foundation, 374 Violet Ave., Poughkeepsie, NY 12501 (www.hvhospice.org).

We 1st met Irene at St Columba Church for the St Francis Blessing of the animals with her beloved terrier Maggie. As terrier lovers we had an immediate connection so did our Jack Russel Derby. This first meeting led to a long friendship. Our family enjoyed seeing her at mass, meeting her husband Bruno and the entire family. The boys especially enjoyed seeing her over the holidays since she routinely surprised them with a chocolate treat. She was a smart, witty, compassionate woman who had a strong faith and a great love of her family and friends. We really enjoyed hearing of about her life experiences especially learning that she worked in Beacon NY at a factory making heated aviator jackets for the US troops in WW II. Irene was an amazing woman who led a wonderful life. We will miss her but know she leaves behind a great legacy which lives on in her daughter and grand children. Our deepest condolences to her family.

Love, The Iberger Family (Raymond, Sandra, Matthew and Michael)
