Great friends, Mozelle, Gloria, & Jackie.  Born in Bristol, PA, Irene, “Rene”, Katz fiercely loved her life, family, and served her community for all 98 years she lived. Irene was ahead of her time. She worked in her parents store in Bordentown as a young woman and educated herself at Temple University. Temple is also where she met her husband of 50 years, Honorable Leon Katz, deceased, and began to have a family.  Irene’s passion was volunteer work, primarily at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital. She took great pride in ensuring the gift shop was fully stocked with quality items that would brighten the days of the patients and visitors at the hospital. Especially, the candy section, as Irene had a big sweet tooth. Irene was also dedicated to the arts and music. A love that she passed down to her children and grandchildren. She enjoyed attending Broadway musicals, the Philly Pops, and the Philadelphia Orchestra. She also never missed a Phillies game on TV or in person. Her favorite player was Ryan Howard. Irene enjoyed shopping, walks in Rittenhouse Square, and her game shows. “I love you, a bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck.” Chapel Services will be held at 11:00AM on Wednesday, November 30th at Joseph Levine & Sons followed by the entombment at Roosevelt Memorial Park. Contributions in Irene’s memory can be made to: Magee Rehabilitation ( or Eric Hubbs Recovery Scholarship Fund, C/O PNC Bank, 22 N.
