Irene Titak, age 94, peacefully passed away on March, 11, 2022.  She is survived by her children; Larry Titak, Nancy (Steve) Krull and Marlene (Tony) Maxey: grandchildren; Stacy (Mark) Spejewski, Kevin Krull, Christopher (Hannah) Maxey, and Melissa (Nick) Slabaugh:  great-grandchildren: Lauren Lanham, Lindsey Lanham, Alexis Maxey, Sebastian Maxey, Ethan Slabaugh, Mallory Slabaugh, Owen Slabaugh, Ellie Slabaugh, Logan Spejewski, Madison Spejewski and  brother, Joseph Donald Lazorik.

Preceded in death by her loving husband of 54 years, Andrew; parents, Joseph and Mary Lazorik: brother Richard Lazorik: great-granddaughter, Molley Lanham.

Irene was always cheerful and met you with a smile and her warm personality.  Traits that served her well for her business career which started at her family's grocery store and meat market.  She took a break to raise three children while still managing to be the bookkeeper for their family owned service station in the 60's.  Andy and Irene then opened Titak Meats which they opened for for almost 30 years.  She loved greeting and conversing with the customers and knew most by name.  After Andy retired she went to work in the jewelry department at LS Ayers for 10 years, another position at the counter that she was just made for.

Irene was a faithful member at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Merrillville.  She loved her Bunco club and playing pinochle with her mom, husband and his mother on Sunday afternoons.  Most important to her was her family, her grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Special friend Christopher Columbus.
