Irene J. (Tork) Sroda, 92, passed away peacefully on May 26, 2021.
Irene was born January 23, 1929 in Stevens Point to the late Mike and Regina (Przekurat) Tork. She attended St. Peter’s Elementary School and St. Joseph’s Academy (now known as Pacelli High School), serving as Class President and Senior Prom Queen, thereat graduating in 1947. She married the love of her life, Warnard “Ike” Sroda, on September 1, 1952. They enjoyed every day of their 66 years together, before Ike passed away on January 15, 2019.
Her career involved 30 years at Rollin Mabie’s Certified Public Accounting firm. She then went on to work for Wisconsin Public Service, being a Bailiff at the Portage County Courthouse and a Processor at Sentry Insurance Co. She and her husband went on to develop 4 area subdivisions and did some home building. They donated 76 acres to the City of Stevens Point for a park and enough wildlife property along the Wisconsin River to complete The Green Circle Trail of Portage County.
Survivors include her son, Bruce (fiancee, Nannette Martineau) of Stevens Point and one brother, Edward (Dorothy) Tork who resides in Clearwater, FL and numerous nieces and nephews throughout the country.
She enjoyed traveling with Ike in their R.V. camper along with many fine folk of the two camping clubs they were members of for nearly 30 years, namely The Valley Bummers and The Drifters. She loved watching her son play sports and her husband who coached youth baseball teams for 8 years. Her hobbies included cooking, baking, accounting and camping.
