Irene Azato Flynn

Irene Azato Flynn passed away on September 20, 2009 at the age of 86 following a short illness. Irene's family takes great comfort that she has rejoined Frank, the love of her life, in heaven. Irene loved her family, her friends, and her Church. Irene and Frank, who at one time owned and lived in the former Cherry Plaza Hotel on beautiful Lake Eola, met many famous and interesting residents of their hotel who came from all over the world, including a U.S. President. Irene is survived by her son, Patrick of Houston, Texas, his wife, Jeannine (Keel) Flynn, and their two daughters, Margo and Emily. She is also survived by her daughter, Sandy Peachey of Orlando, and Sandy's two children, Sarah and Jack; and by her daughter, Suzanne Collins of Virginia, and Suzanne's seven children, Christopher, Aaron, Jonathan, Michael (Mikey), Bobby (Robert James), Christy, and Thomas (Tommy). Irene was also blessed to have five great grand-children. Irene was a treasure that can never be replaced. She loved Florida, especially its beaches. She loved butterflies and everyone she met. Her life was as bright as her favorite color, yellow. Her happy countenance and positive attitude will truly be missed. Irene's family wishes to provide a special thank you to the staff at Summerville at Ocoee, and to the staff at Quality Healthcare in Winter Garden (especially to Shaunagh Cook), for all of their good care and attention to Irene over the past nineteen months. Funeral services will be held at St. Andrew Catholic Church next month on October 24, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. The church is located at 801 Hastings Street, Orlando, Florida 32808. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to St. Andrew Catholic Church or to the charity of your choice in her memory.
