Irene Marie McDonnell

March 23, 1938 - January 29, 2019
Resided in Sunnyvale, California


Irene McDonnell passed away on January 29, 2019. Irene was born on March 23, 1938 in Palo Alto California to John E. Francesco and Emily Nunes. Irene graduated from Palo Alto High School in 1956. She married Edward McDonnell on December 18, 1965.
Irene worked as an inspector for many years before moving on to manage a store for the Photo Place before she retired.
Irene loved being with her family and friends. She always had a smile to share and loved to make people laugh. That was her gift. Bowling and Bingo were her a few of her favorite activities and had the Food Network started back in 1960, she would have won some of those cake making competitions.
Irene is survived by her son Edward; daughter-in-law Gena; her sister Nickie; her brother-in-law Al; and her niece and God-daughter, Sonia.
A celebration of Irene’s life will be held at 1:00pm on Saturday, February 9th, 2019 at LIMA & CAMPAGNA SUNNYVALE MORTUARY, 1315 Hollenbeck Ave, Sunnyvale with Reverend John Harrison officiating. There will be an on-site reception to follow.
