Irene A. Rygalski, age 96, of Toledo, passed away at home Thursday, May 3, 2018. She was born January 24, 1922, in Toledo, to Roman and Mary (Kaszubski) Pudlowski. A 1941 graduate of Woodward High School, Irene worked for many years as an assembler for the Jeep Corporation at the Willys Jeep Parkway Plant. She was a lifelong resident of Point Place, and a parishioner of St. Adalbert Catholic Church. Irene enjoyed puzzles, magazines, and trips to the casinos. She also loved dogs, feeding the squirrels, and playing cards with friends and family. She was a devoted wife and longtime caregiver to her husband Ed. Irene was a strong independent woman, driving and taking care of herself and home for 95 years until finally allowing for help. She was a role-model and matriarch of the Cisowski/Miller families giving inspiration, love, and support during joyous and difficult times. People thought of her as sweet and the most interesting person they have met. The family will miss her sharp mind and wit, common sense and humor every day. Irene was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Edward Rygalski; infant daughter, Lynette; brother, Walter Pudlowski; sisters, Isabelle Kaczor, Catherine Poole, Helen Szymanski, Genevieve Rygalski, and Verna Mazur; niece and nephew, Lou and Marlene (Syzmanski), and grandnephews, Tim and Fred Cisowski.
