Irene was born in Utica, on March 27, 1927, the daughter of Alexander and Valeria (Czaska) Murawski.

At one time, Irene was employed with Griffiss Airforce Base in Rome, First Bank and Trust Company, (later known as Marine Midland Bank) and retired from the Utica City School District after working for several years as a lunch aide at Seymour School. Irene’s love for sewing began at a very young age. Through her lifetime, she made countless numbers of clothing garments from infant to adult, as well as alterations for family and friends.
