S. Irene (Truskoski) Mariner, former Terryville resident, passed away Sunday (Aug. 26, 2012) surrounded by the love and care of her family.

Irene was born Dec. 30, 1924 in Terryville, and graduated from Terryville High School. In 1951, she moved to Washington, DC where she worked as a stenographer at the Pentagon. She enjoyed the city's cultural activities, but returned to Connecticut a few years later and met her future husband, Howard Mariner. Together, they started a family and built a house on part of her parent's farm. Irene worked as a Supervisor for the Connecticut State Labor Department and retired after 22 years. She was past president of the Polish Junior League and the Terryville Seniors. She loved to travel, and saw sites throughout the United States, Canada, Europe and the Caribbean. She even white-water rafted in Alaska at age 70! Irene visited California for many years, finally moving there in 2010. She was happy to be near her family.

Irene is survived by her loving son, Ian, her daughter-in-law, Grace and precious grandson Christian. She is pre-deceased by her husband, Howard, and her sister and four brothers.

Friends and family are invited to a celebration of her life at St. Casimir's Church, Terryville on Thursday (Sept. 6, 2012) at 10:30a.m. Burial will be in St. Mary's Cemetery, Terryville.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Terryville Public Library or the Connecticut Children's Hospital. www.scottfuneralhomeinc.com

My deepest condolences to your family.. I remember Mrs. Mariner very fondly having lived "just two doors down" from her on Kearney Street for over 20 years.. my Dad used to do her gardening and snowblowing.. Mrs. Mariner was always so warm and funny, and full of interesting tales. I will miss her.
