Irene S. Makowski (nee Sitarski), age 95, of Clark, passed away on Sunday July 12, 2020, at Overlook Medical Center. 

Born and raised in Bayonne, to John and Stella Sitarski. Irene resided in Clark for over 30 years with her beloved husband of 65 years, Henry V. Makowski, Sr. (2014). Irene was very family oriented and looked forward to summer vacations spent down in Wildwood. She also enjoyed trips throughout New England during the fall foliage where she would find rustic antique and country stores to stop and shop in. Irene loved to cook; her sauce and meatballs will be missed, but not forgotten. She also loved to bake, clean and was an avid seamstress. 

Irene is survived by her loving children; Monica Sanzo and her husband Robert; Henry R. Makowski, Jr. and his wife Patricia; caring sister of Eugene Sitarski and Donna Ciszewski; devoted grandmother of Jeffrey, Michael, Danielle, Kathy, Robert, Keith, Heather, and Daniel; cherished great grandmother of Mary, Emma, Noah and Amelia; treasured companion to the family dog, Kona.
