Obituary for Irene Popovici

Irene Popovici died peacefully January 6, 2011 at Sinai Grace Hospital in Detroit. She was 90 years old. Mrs. Popovici was born March 12, 1920 to Hermina (nee Kish) and Andrei Lina.

Mrs. Popovici�s final days were spent surrounded by her family, which was impacted strongly by her positive attitude and deep faith in the Lord. Her family, her church, and her love of animals defined her. Her greatest gift, however, was her selflessness and unlimited capacity to give and sacrifice for others. Her persona was as beautiful as her inner beauty. She was greatly loved and will be deeply missed.

Mrs. Popovici is survived by her children, Caroline (Richard) Bullock, Cornelia (Robert) Sampson, and Nicolae (Jean) Popovici, her grandchildren, Robert (Kelly) Sampson, Mark (Megan) Bonanni, Nicolae (Deena) Popovici, Katie (Jack) Scarsella, and Andrew Popovici, and her great-grandchildren, Antonio, Tristan, Estella, Nolan, Abbey and Josie. Mrs. Popovici is preceded in death by her husband, Nicolae.

Visitation will take place at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 1368 N. Crooks (between 14-15 Mile Roads), Sunday 2-8pm with Saracusta at 7:30pm. Funeral at St. George Romanian Orthodox Cathedral, 18405 West 9 Mile Road, Southfield, Monday 10am.

Interment will take place in Evergreen Cemetery, Detroit.

Memorials appreciated to St. George Cathedral.
