Irene A. Ladurini
7/30/21 ~ 8/31/09
Irene A. Ladurini was born July 30, 1921 to Ann and Rudolph J. Bunk in Walsenburg, CO, where she lived all her long and happy life until she was called by Our Lord to His Kingdom on August 31, 2009.
After high school, she attended St. Mary’s College in Leavenworth, KS. She married Virgil Ladurini May 8, 1941 and raised her two children, Mary Ann and David. She loved her flower and vegetable gardens where you could find her any summer day. She also loved to entertain and cook; parties for her children and their classmates, dinner parties for her and Virgil’s friends and family, football games and, of course, her bridge clubs. She also loved to travel with her family to various places around the world, especially to her son’s home in Florida.
She is preceded in death by her daughter, Mary Ann, her brother Rudolph F. Bunk (Rudy), brother-in-laws, Charles Masinton, Chris Skarmas and sister-in-law, Lola Masinton. She will be missed by her husband of 68 years; her son David and his wife, Cindy; her sister-in-laws, Betty Bunk and Irene Skarmas; by her many nieces, Carol Bunk (Brent) Daniels, Judy Bunk (Paul) Liapis, Genie Bunk Chandler, Cindy Skarmas (Mike) Dome, Mitzi Masinton (Don) Keairns; and nephews, Ron (Linda) Bunk, Chris (Chrisie) Skarmas, Jerry (Martha) Masinton, Richard Masinton; and all her many friends in Walsenburg and her second home in Florida.
Her wish, in lieu of flowers, was that donations be made to Sister Carol or St. Mary’s Catholic Church. A celebration of her life will begin at 10 am, Thurs. Sept. 3 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. All her family and friends are welcome to attend a reception, in her honor, at the Walsenburg Golf Club following her graveside service.
