Irene May Bachota
Irene May Bachota passed away on 10 September, 2021 at the age of 70, after a courageous battle with COVID-19. She was surrounded by loved ones, covered in prayer, and loved by all who knew her. Her life will be celebrated by those who knew her best by living full lives and cherishing her memory everyday as "we take her with us" everywhere we go.
Devoted wife to her husband, Joseph Bachota Sr., loving mother to her two sons, Joseph Bachota Jr. and Kevin Bachota, Irene May Bachota was a gentle soul. Her life and love she gave to all, will be remembered, forever.
Her greatest joys in life were her family, faith and friends. She always ended phone calls with her two sons, "I love you with all my heart".
She loved Jesus, reading her bible, and saying her prayers every morning, (she never missed a day even when she had medical appointments). She also enjoyed watching movies, TV shows, video games with her family, and good home cooked meals. Irene was also a former DJ. She loved music, especially old country classics, and loved watching football with her sons. Her favorite team was the New England Patriots.
Often teenage kids would come over to the Bachota household because they always knew there was good food, especially her homemade apple pies. Ms. Irene always had some good food waiting for the neighborhood kids. She made everyone feel at home, well-loved and well fed!
