Irene (Irma) Osley May 24, 1925 - December 25, 2017

Irene (Irma) Osley, 92, of Allentown, took her final steps on Christmas day.  She was married to her beloved husband, George, for 62 years before his passing in 2010. She was the daughter of the late John and Anna Horvath. She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Allentown. Aside from her family, Irene’s greatest pleasures were cooking (especially her ethnic recipes), going to the casino, and playing the lottery.  Truly the matriarch of the family, her home was the gathering place, every Sunday, for her children and their families.

Also surviving her is a brother, William Skerlock, and numerous nieces and nephews.
