Irene E. Couture


Irene E. Couture, 90, of Warwick, passed away November 21, 2013 at Genesis Greenwood Center in Warwick.

Born in Warwick, a daughter of the late Alphonse and Diana (Dutilly) Couture. Irene graduated from Aldrich High School in 1941 and worked as a cook and waitress at various dining establishments for many years, most recently at the Jefferson Diner before retiring. She loved talking to the customers and looked forward to them coming back. She enjoyed sitting outside at her apartment house and talking and laughing with her neighbors. She had a great sense of humor and laughed a lot and was called a “Hot Ticket”.

She is survived by two nieces, Diana Brodeur of Peoria, Illinois and Anne Decelles and her husband, Bob of Coventry; two great-nieces, a great-nephew; and many other great-great-nieces and great-great-nephews. She was preceded in death by her brother, Daniel Couture, her sister-in-law Barbara Couture; and a great-niece, Debra Brodeur.

Her funeral service was private with interment in the Couture family lot at St. Mary Cemetery, West Warwick. Information and condolences, please visit:
