Irene (Petroshewski) Stepanyk – a longtime resident of Stoneham, died peacefully on January 7th.

Born and raised in Ukraine, Irene lived in several countries in Europe before taking up residence in Germany. Irene then moved to America, where she spent most of her life, splitting her time between New York and Massachusetts.

Irene had many passions, including watercolor painting, cooking for her family, and reading. She was also an expert at crossword puzzles, despite English being a second language – one of the 5 languages she spoke.

She will always be remembered for her storytelling, love of mystery novels and cats, and her devotion to her family.

Irene’s strength and her stories will remain to provide inspiration to her children and grandchildren going forward.
