SANBORNTON — Irene Clement Richardson passed away April 26, 2013 in Jupiter Florida at the age of 92 after a brief illness.
She was born March 8, 1921 along with her twin sister Eileen Clement Novicki to Ralph and Catherine (Hannagan) Clement.
Irene was well known in the Lakes Region and was sometimes called "twinnie" because people often had a difficult time differentiating between her and her identical twin sister Eileen.
She was raised on the Clement family horse farm in Meredith, NH. along with three sisters and three brothers, Myrtle, Frank, Ralph, Eileen, Norman and Kathleen (Dolly).
She attended Catholic school as a young girl before attending and graduating from Laconia High School in 1939.
She originally married the late Chester L. Novicki of Lakeport, NH. They divorced and she married the love of her life, the late Robert Lee Richardson, Sr. of Lakeport, NH.
Irene and Robert moved to the San Francisco Bay area in 1950 to start a new life. They retired and returned to New Hampshire in the 1980s and settled in Sanbornton on Lake Winnissquam, NH. They wintered in Tequesta, Florida.
Irene is survived by three sons, Chester J. Novicki of Fort Meade, Fla., William Clement Richardson of Tequesta, Fla., and Robert L. Richardson, Jr. of Tuolumne, Ca.; six grandchildren, Alan Novicki of the Philippines, Edward Novicki and Kyle Richardson of Honolulu, Hi, and Robert Richardson III, Jennifer (Richardson) Radetich, and Glen Richardson, and two great grandchildren Teddy and Abby Radetich, all of Tuolumne, Ca. as well as many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her brothers Frank Riley, Ralph Clement, Jr., and Norman Clement, and her sisters Myrtle McIntyre and Kathleen "Dolly" Williams.
She loved family and friends and had many relatives on both the Clement and Richardson sides of the family, as well as many friends in the NH Lakes Region, California and Florida.
Irene was a homemaker her whole life and a devoted Catholic. She loved to keep in touch and loved to write letters to family and friends.
Irene lived a comfortable full life.
Irene has one surviving sibling, her twin sister Eileen Novicki of The Manors Nursing Home, Hobe Sound, Florida.
Funeral service was held at St. Jude Catholic Church in Jupiter Florida in May.
