Irene D. Boulle, 88, of Middletown, died Oct. 4 at CareOne at King James in Atlantic Highlands. She was born in Pleasant Mount, Pennsylvania to the late Demetrius and Mary (neé Bock) Korba.
Irene was a devoted wife, mother and sister who loved and was loved by her family, as well as a caring and giving friend to all who knew her. She was an avid bingo player. She bowled for many years before her sore knees just wouldn’t allow it anymore. She was the treasurer of the bowling league for those many years.
She loved taking her sons to Little League games and practices, as well as keeping the official scorebook. She loved watching all different kinds of sports, from her favorite Mets to football to golf. She participated in a Fantasy Golf League well into her 80s and had even won the championship three times against eight other men and her eldest son in the 15 years she participated.
She spent many weekends doing garage sales and flea markets with her great friend Connie. She liked to travel, vacationing in the Adirondacks and Canada with her family, along with a trip to the Holy Land, Rome, London and Paris with her sister Rose.
Surviving are her loving and devoted husband of 69 years Robert N. Boulle; two sons, Robert M. Boulle of Tinton Falls and John R. Boulle and his wife Patricia of Greenfield, New Hampshire; her two sisters, Rose Kennedy and Gloria Geiger; her brother Vladimir Korba; and many nieces and nephews.
Irene was preceded in death by her parents, and her brothers, Demetrius Korba Jr. and Alexander Korba.
