Obituary

Irene Mae Shuda, age 83, Stevens Point, died peacefully March 21, 2021 under the care of Ascension Hospice, Stevens Point at Brookdale/Dimensions Senior Living in Stevens Point.


Irene was born April 12, 1937 in Stevens Point to John and Phylis (Woyak) Meronek. During her senior year of high school, Irene worked as an Optometrist Assistant to Dr. George Leach. Irene and Ray Shuda met one day as she walked past the gas station where Ray worked on her way to work downtown. The owner of the gas station told Ray to go over and talk to Irene. So, he walked over, said “Hello” and told her he had a car and could give her a ride if she needed one. Weeks later she called him and the rest was history. Irene graduated from Maria High School in June 1955. Ray and Irene and were married on September 28, 1957 at St. Peter’s Church and settled in Stevens Point. They are the parents of five children: Dan, Kathy, Gary, Alan, and Craig. She continued to work after the children started school at the following businesses: Dr. G. R. Leach, Kaiser Optical, Walmart Vision Center, and Sentry Optical. She retired in 1999, after 33 years in her career.

Irene was gifted a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye camera by her Godmother, Mrs. Minnie Matthews when she was 12 years old. Through the years she captured life’s special moments of her friends and family including, new babies, birthdays, awards, holidays, sports, music recitals & concerts, graduations, weddings, anniversaries, vacations, camping and travels! She liked to plan family gatherings and outings. She was dedicated to her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Irene greatly enjoyed watching her grandchildren participate in their school and sports activities, especially music performances. During all these times, she enjoyed being the family photographer!


Irene is survived by Ray, her husband of 63 years; her 5 children, Daniel (Ann) in Eau Claire WI; Kathleen in Mount Pleasant WI; Gary (Cindy) in Custer WI; Alan (Kris) in Faribault MN; Craig (Anita) in Brookfield WI. 13 grandchildren: Bethany (Steve) Kolve in Eau Claire WI; Ali Shuda (Matt) Bents in Madison WI; Jacob (Elise Wattman) Shuda in Eau Claire WI; Rosemary Shuda in St. Louis Park MN; Stephanie (James) Vaughan in Sun Prairie WI; Marc Lundquist in Milwaukee WI; Caitlyn Shuda in Custer WI; Brett Shuda in Custer WI; Matt (Katie) Shuda in Faribault MN; Michael (Daisy Jo) Shuda in Faribault MN, Jason Shuda in Faribault MN; Jarod Shuda in Brookfield WI; and Tyler Shuda in Brookfield WI Her 7 great grandchildren: Sam Callarman, Britt Kolve, Poppy Bents, Maurice Bents, Donovan Lundquist, Sylvie Vaughan, and Carter Shuda.
