    Irene was born on Nov. 23, 1932, a daughter of the late Joseph and Ruth (Ingersol) Smith in the town of Russia. She attended Poland Central School. On April 18, 1953, she was united in marriage to Burel Seeley. They shared a union of 42 years until his passing in January 1995.
    She was of the Methodist faith. Irene was formerly employed by Little Falls Hospital in the dietary department until her retirement in the early 1980s. For many years, during retirement, she served as a bus monitor for Dolgeville Central School. Irene enjoyed crocheting, jigsaw puzzles, visits to New Jersey and loved being with her two sons and her grandchildren. She will be greatly missed by her family, friends and neighbors.
