GADAWSKI - Irene P. (nee Jankowski)
Age 92, passed away on April 29, 2019. Irene earned her Bachelor's Degree in Dietary Services from the Rochester Institute of Technology. She and her late husband, Edward L. Gadawski were the owners of Gadawski's Restaurant in Niagara Falls for 66 years. Irene had a passion for cooking, but her happiness came from serving others. She was a volunteer at the former St. Mary's Manor for many years; was a member of the former Echo Club and was a faithful member of the former Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church where she was a member of their Mother's Club. She had a deep love for her grandchildren which was evident by the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about them and spent time with them. She was a great supporter of all the activities her grandchildren were involved in. Irene was predeceased by her parents, Anthony and Catherine (Ochal) Jankowski; her husband, Edward L. Gadawski; her sisters, Martha Czerwin and Dorothy Stagg. She is survived by her children, Mary Beth Nugent, Anthony (Ginger) Gadawski, Robert (Gail) Gadawski and Frederick (Lynne) Gadawski; 14 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. A private Mass of Christian Burial will be held for family members at Holy Family Parish at Mt. Carmel with Rev. Duane R. Klizek officiating followed by interment in Holy Trinity Cemetery. A celebration of Irene's life is being planned and will be announced at a later date.
