Tools

Irene S. Pipe, 103, County Rt. 16, town of Pamelia , died Friday, March 29, 2013, at her home.

Calling hours will be held at Cummings Funeral Service, Inc., Watertown on Saturday, April 13, from 9:30 - 11:30 AM followed by the funeral service at the funeral home at noon with Rev. Steven Murray, Holy Family Church, officiating. Burial will be in North Watertown Cemetery.

Mrs. Pipe was born in Watertown on March 28, 1910, daughter of Fred and Cora Eddy Snell, and she graduated from Watertown High School in 1928.

On June 19, 1938 she married Walter J. Pipe in Scranton , PA , and he died on March 22, 2000.

For five years Irene was a long distance operator for NY Telephone Co. and for nine years she was a clerk in the receiving department at Empsall's Department Store, both in Watertown.

She was a member of Stone Presbyterian Church and the Fidalias Club. She was a past Brownie Leader, and she enjoyed gardening, reading, knitting and spending time on the River and Lake.

It is remarkable that Irene lived in her own home and lived to 103 years independently. Irene's proudest accomplishment in her long life was her loving family. She always did things her way.

She is survived by her daughter and her husband, Judith A. and William D. Brenon, Watertown; son-in-law, Richard Gaffney, Watertown; daughter-in-law, Susan Pipe, Watertown; 7 grandchildren and spouses; 16 great grandchildren; 3 step-grandchildren and spouses and four step-great-grandchildren.

Besides her husband Walter, she was predeceased by her son, Jon W. Pipe, May 23, 2010, her daughter, Linda I. Gaffney, December 21, 2009, her brother, Justin "Judd" Snell, March 19, 2011, and her sister, Mary Snell, in infancy.
