Obituary of Irene Pinckney

IRENE PINCKNEY, 91, of Auburn NY, passed away with her family at her side Sunday, August 18, 2019.

During her working career Irene worked at the National Bank of Auburn and the Syracuse Developemental Center working with troubled children. She was a lifetime member of the Elks Club ladies auxiliary.

Irene enjoyed reading, cross word puzzles, playing cards and an occasional trip to the casino. She loved traveling spoiling her grandchildren and her great grandchildren. She was a solid rock for her three children. Also, one of her most favorite things to do was to cook. Anyone whoever stopped at her house would know mom's diner was always open for a cup of coffee, a sandwich or sweets. Along with the food she would entertain you with her humor, stories and undisguised comments and opinions.

Irene was predeceased by her husband R James Pinckney. Her sisters, Mary Winnicki and Emily Kavanaugh, her brother Stanley Krawczyk and her great grandson Noah Farrelly.

She is survived by her three children. Sharon Farrelly (Bernie), Kathy Pinckney, Paul (Debbie) Pinckney.
